Pours a deep chestnut brown with just the slightest ruby hues in the light and a thin dark tan head that quickly dissolves leaving almost no traces.

The roasted chocolate malt wafts from the glass with hints of coffee perhaps as well.

Robust chocolate malt flavor as advertised, deep and roasted, it only improves as the beer warms.

Great flavor character, light carbonation, and medium to heavy body, this beer is everything it claims to be.

Although the ABV is a little strong to qualify, this would be a great session beer. Tons of character, but nothing overwhelming, an excellent brew.

4.14/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4.25

appearance- It's a rich dark brown with a half finger head that quickly goes away

smell- the smell is a refreshing mocha-coffee smell. It smells very sweet and bourbon like.

taste- you get a lot of mocha flavor in this beer. maybe a little bit of a sweet bourbon taste which i really like. The finish is a drier coffee taste which lingers for a while on the tongue and cheeks and leaves the mouth dry. I am not of fan of beer that finish in this way nor am I a fan of the way this one finished however, I am a fan of this beer.

Mouth feel is very wet and smooth. not creamy at all. this is quite a lot of carbonation, almost too much for a porter I think. I'd prefer a little less carbonation when I'm drinking a porter or stout.

Overall- This is a good beer to sit down with and have with a dinner. I might buy this beer again. definitely not a session beer. I do like this though but for some reason this beer is a little harder for me to judge.
