4.47/5  rDev +12.9%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

22 oz Bottle into my imperial pint glass
A - dark brown, thick sticky brown head, looks yeasty and sticky
S - can smell it as soon as the bottle opens, malty, slightly sour aroma
T - deep roasted malt taste, bit of hops bitterness in the aftertaste, but crisp, can taste the chocolate, but more of a pumpernickel sort of taste for me.
M - crisp, carbonation there on the tongue. Not tasting a lot of alcohol, but I guess it is ther
O - a good porter. Not one for gimmicks but the Taza Chocolate nibs give it a nice accent. I like the Slumbrew IPA better (style preference), but this is good

Slumbrew Porter Square Porter has a thin, beige head, a very dark, almost black, brown appearance, and slight lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of chocolate, milk, burnt malt, and a bit of acidic. Taste is of sugar, milk, chocolate, acidic bitterness, char, and dark-roasted malt. Mouthfeel is fairly heavy and velvety, and Slumbrew Porter Square Porter finishes semi-dry, easy drinking, and not at all alcohilic.
