Appearance – Pours a pitch black color with a nice chocolatey brown head and sparse but nice lacing.

Smell – Roasted malts, coffee, smoke, licorice, molasses, chocolate, and caramel.

Taste – Predominantly coffee smoke, and malts. A bit of cacao and caramel.

Mouthfeel – Slightly creamy, but also a little watered down and somewhat flat. No bitter aftertaste.

Drinkability – A very easy drinking porter, though it is only 6.5%abv.
