4.28/5 rDev +3.6%
Appearance – A fairly black color overall, with a nice dark red accent on the edge. A creamy head that retains a ring around the very edge of the glass. Good lacing.
Smell – Chocolate, roasted malt, maple, and molasses. Very nice.
Taste – Taste is similar to the smell; chocolate with a subtle sweetness.
Mouthfeel – Smooth, velvety feel. Lightly carbonated. Feels nice!
Drinkability – Very drinkable. This went down easy. I think this is an underrated porter.

330ml bottle poured into half pint glass
very dark brown to black in colour with a small head (1 finger-ish)
The head faded away as I drank the beer and the lacing was minimal
Smelt of roasted malts, toffee and a hint of coffee
Taste wise the roasted malts came over as did a toffee/caramel flavour - didn't get the coffee when tasting but most definately a chocolate flavour coming across. very much on the sweet side when it comes to porters!
Good mouthfeel, silky smooth and soothes your throat as it passes down!

dark brown with a large creamy tan colored head on the top. Great retention let it hang around for what seemed like forever before finally being nestled down into just a thin layer across the top. The aroma was very full and sweet. Lots of chocolate roaming through it along with a touch of coffee and lots of sugar. A slight smoked presentation as well. The flavor was also very full for a porter. This almost had a stout like feel to it as it was very thick and full with a great robust profile. Lots of chocolate and coffee notes dominated it

A- Pitch black body with medium tan head. Good lacing.
S- Roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, hint of coffee.

M- Smooth and light with very little carbonation.
