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

Appearance: Pours black, good tan head, leaves good lacing

Smell: Chocolate, caramel, earthy, piney, and resinous hops

Taste: Chocolate, caramel, and coffee up front. Next up is the earthy, piney, and resinous hops. Light bitterness finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body, good carbonation

Overall: This is a good example of what sets the American Porter apart from the English Porter. Good beer.

Serving type: bottle
