look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

I bought this because of the simplistic bottle and the fact it was a porter. There is nothing simplistic about this beer.

I poured it from a bottle into a Sam Adams glass. The beer has a dark chocolate color, with about 3/4 inch of head. The aroma is that of dark chocolate and coffee.

The taste cannot be adequately described by my words. This is simply the best porter I have ever tasted.

This is just a wonderful beer. My words can't do it justice. #InLove
