look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance:
Pours an incredibly dark brown color, a few shades off of black. Crowned by a finger-thick creamy, beige head that leaves plenty of lacing behind. There appears to be a considerable amount of carbonation present. Very appealing.

Aroma:
Sweet, dark cocoa nibs and molasses mixed with hints of star anise and cola. Nicely toasted.

Taste:
A fantastic clash of sweet and bitter. Upfront, you're greeted by rich, toasty chocolate notes. Rye pushes its way in with a wave of bitter coffee. Very malty and lightly hopped with herbal notes breaking through and peat on the finish.

Mouthfeel:
Quite thick, almost chewy consistency. Highly carbonated. Semi-sweet finish.

Overall:
A very good offering from a very small brewery in St. Paul, MN. Plenty of character can be found in this distinct English Porter. Worth picking up.
