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

Reviewed 4/5/13, 12 oz bottle in a nonic pint glass.

A - Pours dark brown with a one finger tan head, that dissipates quickly into a thin cap. Very little lacing.

S - Caramel malts, toffee, a little bit of fruity yeast, hints of chocolate and coffee.

T - Roasted malt, slightly sweet, light coffee, finishes with a light bitterness. Notes of caramel.

M - Medium to light body, medium carbonation.

O - Decent porter, not one I would seek out again.

Poured from a 355ml bottle into a pint glass. Past it's BBD.

Pours a dark brown/black colour with an off-white head.

Smells quite dark and sweet.

Tastes again, dark and roasted, with a good dose of sweetness. A bit of a watery aspect to it, not just because it has quite a thin mouthfell.

Overall a pretty good beer, especially for the price.
