look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

From a six pack of 12 oz. bottles purchased at Menotomy Beer & Wine. Their employees were helpful, friendly and generous.

A- 4 For the style, its hard to screw up the appearance. Deep, dark, completely opaque black color. Brown head, seems to have some head retention issues, but it is quite easy enough to stir up again.

S- 5 Smells of chocolate, dark sweetness/caramel. Very pungent beer. Delicious aroma.

T- 5 WOW. Very flavorful brew. Powerful dark maltiness, but in no way off-putting. Super chocolaty, thick and delicious.

M- 5 Very thick, but not syrupy. Creamy head mixes nicely. Virtually flawless beer. I am officially impressed.

D- 4 I really couldn't drink this beer forever. But totally worth while to any beer advocate. Very well balanced, and great tasting porter.

dark ,rich and sexy is right! good beer
