look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
A-pours a very dark brown, almost black, with no highlights seen and a fingers worth of tan head that leaves a bit of lace around the edge
S-the smell is very nice, roasted malt, dark coffee, light chocolate, and a little bit of smoke
T-taste is also nicely roasted with a nutty quality, roasted coffee, and as the beer warms the chocolate comes out a bit more
M-just makes the medium body mark, good carbonation, dry roasted taste is left in the mouth
Overall this is a very easy, tasty beer. I could definitely have more than one of these at a time.

Best by 10/01/14 at 45 degrees into snifter
Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate
Head large (5.5cm), light brown, fizzy/frothy, rapidly diminishing 3 mm ring
Lacing excellent - thick layer covering inside of glass
Body dark brown/black, opaque
Flavor of bitter roasted malt, dark chocolate, and some coffee; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl. Ends rapidly leaving a slight bitterness behind.
Palate medium, creamy, lively carbonation
A decent porter lacking the fruity esters and hop bitterness.

On tap at Boneyard Bistro in Sherman Oaks, CA.
Pours an opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and char aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, char, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast and hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice balance of roast and hop aspects.
