look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to tiny wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and cookie dough aromas. Taste is much the same with char and cocoa flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp but somewhat thin mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but the roasty bitterness borders on acrid in my opinion.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

22 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter.
The pour is very dark reddish-brown and clear but looking black in the glass, with a small light brown head. The head is mostly short-lived and produces little lacing.

Aroma: markedly appealing mix of medium and dark roasted malts and dark fruits, with hints of chocolate, sherry and coffee. Nice impression of sweet, dark baked bread.

Taste: Mildly sweet and malty with notes of dark fruit, spicy hops, chocolate and caramel at the start. Gets progressively less sweet and more malty, with the dark roast and some smoke coming forward. Mildly bitter/sweet with a clear note of coffee and a touch of smoke at the end, and lingering for a good while afterwards in an aftertaste that ultimately turns mildly bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium+ body; creamy in texture with a medium-low carbonation, but a light finishing bite.

Overall: a very good Porter that smells and drinks like a 'bigger', more expensive porter.

look: 2 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a thin head on a black body.
The aroma is roasted and burnt malt, strong on the burnt part. It's bold and I like it.
The taste has a good burnt malt to it with a touch of cream to balance it out. One sided but pretty good.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
Enjoyable if you like a bold porter.
