look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from the bottle to a snifter.

A: Poured near black with a dark brown tinge. Very small beige head.

S: Coffee and dark chocolate, roasty malts, some tobacco or tea, slight hops.

T: The taste follows the smell really well, except that the taste is more bitter than the smell might indicate.

M: Light to medium bodied. Average carbonation. Mostly bitter and a little sticky on the mouth feel.

Overall a great porter. I really like the coffee flavor and what I would describe as almost a smoky or tobacco flavor.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours almost black. A thick light brown head develops and settles to a thin topping that laces the glass.

A rich chocolatey nose with some light roastiness.

Medium body and hop bitterness to balance the sweetness. The inviting malts in the aroma come through in the taste delivering the chocolate and coffee roastiness.
