look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Two drafts at the brewery, served in a snifter.
Brownish black in the glass, plenty of delicate lacing around the edges, and a gentle skim across the surface. Dark and opaque.

Smells like blueberries in a big way. Mellow dry roast as well.

Unmistakeable taste of blueberries and dry chocolate. Fruit forward, dry and roasty, no weird tartness from the fruit. Very balanced with some minor barrel tannin, but it seems like a second use barrel possibly, as things are pretty mellow and balanced. Smooth feel, ample fruit and roasty Porter aspects. Overall something I could continue drinking all night.
