look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

exactly what i want a robust porter to be. way richer and fuller than Black Butte and pure chocolate whereas Black Butte reminds me of charcoal. Not like Edmund Fitzgerald either with its slight smokiness and average thisckness mouthfeel. the closest similar beers would probably be Gonzo baltic porter by flying dog or maybe washington tavern porter by yards due to its full mouthfeel and rich chocolatyness

A= dark, black, nice tan head, nothing wrong here
S= roasty chocolate and some sweet malt. hints of coffee
T= same as nose, very full rich mouthfeel, sweet but with hop and roasty bitterness to balance.
O= One of my favorite interpretations at the style, very enjoyable and full dark beer at half the abv of an imperial stout. Will have to keep this around
