look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22oz bomber into handblown tulip glasses.
Pours a very nice dark chocolate with a minimal roasted molasses colored head.
Smell was nice, coffee, some sweet vanilla notes, dankness, roasted malts.
Taste was intense, delicious. A very nice combination of coffee, vanilla, alcohol forward.
Mouthfeel was really nice. Not too think, just enough to chew on with minimal carb.
Ballast Point continues to impress me with incredibly high quality beers that are readily available nation wide.

My first review still learning

Look :Beautiful dark chocolate color with a tan topping staying faint as you drink
Aroma: Smells of chocolate coffee hint of vanilla
Taste: Taste just as it smells
Mouthfeel: Well balance a medium body but very smooth and silky like a cold vanilla frap

Overall: a very wonderful great porter will drink again
