4.28/5 rDev +3.4%
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.

4.03/5 rDev -2.7%
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!
