look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A - Poured from the bottle into a goblet - my tulip was in the dishwasher and I didn't bother to hand wash it. I can't differentiate appearance on many of these dark beers. There was a relatively small head that vanished fairly quickly. Lacing was minimal, if it existed at all.
S - Nice bit of a knockback here. The 10% alcohol level is definitely present in the nose. Also a dark, mildly sweet chocolate smell. Little bit of roastiness.
T - Starts off semi-sweet chocolate. Some roasty characteristics build in very quickly forming a nice blend. The alcohol comes in on the finish with a nice little bite. Definitely some heat here.
M - As advertised. It is silky smooth and full-bodied. Jack's Abby has nailed the mouthfeel on so many of its beers.
O - Another excellent beer from Jack's Abby. The alcohol in this one is a little stronger than I like, and the couple Imperial Stouts that I've had recently compared favorably to this one.

4.15/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 500ml bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.
A: The beer is a deep black color, with a large beige head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and a touch of hops.
T: The taste starts out with a strong smokiness followed by bitter-sweet flavors of coffee and chocolate. There’s a hearty roasted malt character as you would expect. The hops presence is strong for the style but not over-powering and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly smoky and slightly bready.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, strong kick, good representation of style, this is a nice big porter worth drinking for a long time.
