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

12 oz Can poured into Darkness chalice.

A- Pitch black with a small light khaki head a top that dissipates quickly.

S- Very smoke heavy, Big malt nose

T- Super heavy in smokey malt. Chocolate overtones present as well as coffee with minimal bitterness.

M- Medium velvety bodied very well balanced porter.

O- Just extremely solid porter, absolutely delicious. I will be buying this again for the colder months but at this point I will be putting more emphasis on the lighter fare even though it is 80 degrees outside I can still drink this without worrying about it weighing me down too much. Cheers.

Poured into a pint glass from the can. No freshness date on the can. Props to Florida9 for including this in my trade with him.

A-Pours a deep, almost black brown color with a thick, creamy light brown head that dissipates fairly quickly and settles at about a half finger width. This almost looks like a stout.

S-Toasted bread, bready malts, caramel sweetness, a bit nutty as well.

T-Follows the nose, mostly. The sweet bready malts balance perfectly with the semi-charred, toasty flavor that precedes a subtle hop flavor. Very complex and robust for an American porter.

MF-Creamy as hell. Feels almost like an RIS. Body is thick and full and it finishes a bit dry.

O-Probably the best American porter I've ever had. Taste is very complex and well balanced. A robust American porter that I find very satisfying to drink.

Dark as night, this american style porter offers an incredible taste and aroma of dark chocolate malt with notes of toasted grain and caramel flavors. The chocolate essence of this drink allows it to be a great after dinner drink. Very palatable, and a great introduction beer for someone who wants a more robust drink.
