look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A - Dark garnet color with a large, foamy, thick, creamy tan head. Good retention that sticks around for awhile. Leaves a nice layer of lace.
S - Sweet malt with cocoa and some anise (along with some raisin) aroma gives it a chocolaty and tart aroma. Slightly roasted malt with some caramel. Could be a little stronger, but pretty good.
T - Similar to the nose with chocolate, some anise, and some raisin come out along with the roasted, sweet, caramel malt. Some earthy and nutty flavors come out along with a touch of spiciness. Hints of coffee, but fairly faint. Very nice mix of flavors and pretty well balanced.
M - Fuller side of medium body with a good level of carbonation. Pretty smooth and creamy. Just gets a touch of a drying feel at the end.
D - Very easy to drink porter with a nice mix of flavors that is well balanced. Keeps me wanting to drink more.
Notes: A very nice porter with mixes of cocoa, anise, raisin, nutty, earthy, and caramel malt flavors. Sweet, tart, spicy, and roasted tones all come in and out. Might not be world class, but a great beer for a good price. Recommend picking one up.
