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

I poured this beer into a glass, it has a rich black body with a small thick tan head.
The aroma has a nice roast, chocolate smell to it.
The taste is rich with chocolate and roasted malt with a touch of bitter hops. As it warms up the choclate comes out and so does a little oat also.
Mouthfeel is nice and overall a really good porter.
