4.3/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured into my sam adam's beer glass with a perfect head rising above the surface of a dark beer, strongly resembling coca-cola in the glass: dark, but with a hint of redness when held up to a light.

Roasted coffee on the nose, hints of bitter chocolate and toasted marshmallows.

Taste is very balanced, smokey hints of coffee and roasted malts abound, backed up by a light hop taste.

Mouthfeel is medium body, with a nice smooth finish and a lingering smoky malt taste.

Quite a good example of a porter. I support this one entirely!
