look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: A chocolate brown with a ruby hue. It has a light brown head.

S: has a sweetness in the aroma. I also get roasted malt, chocolate, and light coffee notes. there is hints of dark fruits.

T: a lot like the aroma. starts out with some sweet notes and finishes with a touch of bitterness. there is mostly bittersweet chocolate and roasted malt in the flavor. the bitterness reminds me of roasted malt.

M: medium-thin with good carb.

O: a good porter. nothing earth shattering, but good.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pour: Deep, opaque coffee-color with two fingers of light tan colored head that retains well and leaves all sorts of lacing on the glass.

Aroma: Caramel and chocolate malt, coffee, dark fruit, and some earthy hops.

Taste: Almost exactly like the smell: starts off with a sweet blast of caramel malts which quickly fades into a semi-sweet chocolate malt flavor with a faint underlying note of dark fruit. Finishes up with a moderate coffee and hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with medium to high carbonation. Very smooth.

Drinkability: A nice sipping beer.

Final Notes: A lovely, rich beer with lots of character. Wish it was year round - one of my favorite porters from any brewery.
