4.04/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle poured into a stout glass.

Appearance: Pours a thick near-black with a one-finger tan-ish head that sticks around a long time. Pretty heavy carbonation.

Aroma: Nice bouquet of aromas here. Coffee, dark malt, roastiness, tiny touch of floral hops. Touch of smoke, too. Some mocha in the background.

Taste: Follows the nose with black coffee leading the way.

Mouthfeel: Nice, sturdy body. Good fall/winter depth.

Overall: Really good porter from one of the brewers that repopularized the style in the United States. Hits all the right notes, and can pair with a meal or stand up on its own.
