look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

On-tap at TRB.

A: Served a deep cola brown with a thin tan head that faded into a thin collar leaving spotty lace.
S: Definitely a lightly roasted nose with hints of something nutty. Mild caramel and maybe tobacco as well.
T: Roasted and toasted flavors dominate with hints of hazelnuts. Creamy and smooth flavors overall of roast and nuts. Not smokey or overly chocolatey, although there is a hint of coco. Tobacco in the finish, faint leather in the aftertaste.
M: Medium-light body, soft and smooth carbonation, very clean and easy mouthfeel for being so roasted.
O: One of the better porters I've ever had. Very quaffable and delicious. Perfect amount of roast and toast without being smokey or lingering. (710 characters)

Poured into a pint glass. More intense black than traditional porter, but hit's the mark on the roasted malts. Beautiful lacing as I slowly emptied the glass. Definite chocolate with some mild hints of coffee. Agree with the comment on being more intense than standard porters, but definitely not a stout (some porter dance the fine line between being a stout). The feel is in between a traditional porter and stout. (416 characters)

Pours black in the middle with dark brown edges. Nice khaki foam. Lots of lacing. The liquid seems cloudy, but the color makes it hard to tell, obviously. Very portery flavors - what a silly thing to write. Mild coffee, some roast, a little dark chocolate, good dose of caramel. Pretty big on cola, which is actually what I associate with porter and don't really love. Mild vegetal note, probably from the hops. Relatively mild milk chocolate. The taste follows the aroma, which I could write for the vast majority of beers, but there's more roast and cola flavor. It's relatively dry. Vegetal and cola finish, which sounds bad but it's a pleasant enough flavor. A little bit of ash and more caramel. Mouthfeel is somewhat creamy but gets a touch thin in the finish. Pretty good porter but not in the same league as their hoppy beers. (834 characters)

Lots of roasted malt, dark chocolate, and coffee packed into this sessionable porter. Maybe a little too intense to be a true English take on the style, but a very well executed porter nonetheless. (197 characters)
