look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A deep brown/black pour. 1/4 finger head which dissipated to a thin ring. Lots of legs. Really nice looking porter

S coffee notes right away with lots of roasty notes and tons of chocolate characters. Smells excellent.

T basically a chocolate and vanilla milk shake with coffee. The chocolate taste and bitterness is more of a hersheys milk chocolate. A bit of smokiness. Really good. long lingering chocolate coffee aftertaste.

M for a porter I thought this mouth feel was perfect. Not hugely thick like a stout but just right for what it is.

O a really really good porter. This thing has huge milk chocolate and cocoa flavors. The coffee balances it out nicely. The alcohol is detectable but still a very nice beer.
