look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint glass.

A - Had a solid light tan head that dissipated quickly leaving behind some of the larger bubbles. The color is a very dark amber. About as close to black as you can get without actually being black. No light coming through this one when held up to the light either.

S - Says it has a complex smell but I'm honestly hardly picking up much aroma. Definitely some roasty notes. Little bit of chocolate and coffee. Nothing extraordinary.

T - Hit right away with a nice coffee taste. Very mild hoppiness. There is a level of sweetness that cuts the bitterness. Makes for a great well rounded flavor. Pretty heavy with the coffee off the bat and finishes with a subtle dark chocolate flavor.

M - Definitely a "chewy" beer. Light carbonation which is nice because it doesn't mask any of the flavor.

Overall this is a nice porter. I could down this pretty easily with a nice big burger or a steak. Not sure if I'll be picking up another one anytime soon but it beats a lot of other porters that are available around here such as Otter Creek's Stovepipe Porter or anything Magic Hat has to offer.

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

Bottle poured into a Guinness branded shaker pint. Best before 4/16/12 so its really fresh.

A: Dark brown in color, ruby red around the edges when held up to light. Awesome three, creamy finger, khaki head that retained very well and left awesome lacing. Lookin' good.

S: Mocha, cocoa like aroma, some roasty sweetness, vanilla sweetness, almost smells like a milk stout.

T: Roasted malt, lots of chocolate mixed with over sweetened coffee, getting a good dose of vanilla cream, and a slightly smoky finish.

M: Medium light, creamy feel to it, moderate carbonation. Actually has a refreshing quality to it for a porter and goes down very easily, really nice.

O: I liked this a lot, goes down so easy and has everything you want in a solid, well made porter. Will definitely get this again.
