look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer and left some nice lacing on the glass. It is a pitch black color with no clarity or bubbles seen coming up through the glass. More lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Chocolate, roasted coffee, pine, and smoke.
Taste: Taste is along the same lines as the scent. A little lingering bitterness and ash in the end of the palate.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied, low to medium carbonation, and easy to drink.
Overall: Pretty nice black ale. A little more hop presence like others and some creaminess would have been nice, but I'm happy overall.

Poured into a Libby Poter/Stout glass.
A - Extremely dark brown to black body. 1 Finger head that is a dark orange/creamy caramel color. Head dissipates after about a minute and leaves splotchy lacing that is still active with bubbles and a large amount of lacing around the edge of the glass.
S - Light caramel, cooked orange , coffee, butter, vanilla, creamy, reminds me of a stout smell more than a porter, along the lines of a guiness. Hints of hops.
T - Starts incredibly creamy, once again reminded me of a guiness, but it followed with a spiciness like pepper and orange rind. Ends with moderate coffee and hop notes. Really nice flavor.
M - Starts off very full and rich, which I enjoy. Turns into mild acid, but is always accompanied by a creamy and bubbly lacing.
O - A very, very good beer, and one of the best porters I've ever had. I bought this beer from one of my favorite places because it was on sale. I was not expecting something this great for how much I paid for it, and I might go back and grab some more that were on sale.
