4/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz. bottle poured into an imperial pint. 12/12/11 bottled date.

(A)- Pours a dark brown; almost black color. Some brown highlights. Produced a cap of tan froth. Some lace.

(S)- A nice mellow baked bread and roasted grain profile. Bits of raisin, cocoa, and subtle molasses.

(T)- Some nice raisin, cocoa, and coffee bits. Not as roasted like the smell seemed to be like, but gives way to more subtleties of dark fruits.

(M)- A smooth carbonation level and a nice balance. Overall, just a smooth feel and subtle rich flavors.

(D)- A solid to great porter. Classic flavor and a smooth feel to it.
