look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a small head. Smell is of roasted malts. Taste is of malts, some hints of coffee, finishing a tad bitter. Feels medium bodies in the mouth and has decent drinkability. Overall this is a good quality beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark brown/black color, not much carbonation or head, what head there is fades very fast and leaves no lacing.

Smell is pretty much all roasted malt with a hint of coffee.

Taste is also all roasted malt with a hint of coffee bitterness in the aftertaste, carbonation is low but presence, bit of a buttery slickness to the mouthfeel.

A fairly standard porter (much better on nitro though).
