look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A: Looks black - but there is light penetration that makes it look like a dark red or even purple. Forms a 1 1/2 finger frothy white head. There is nice lacing as the head subsides.

S: Nothing prominent on the nose.

T: Early there is not really much flavor. On the mid palate I am getting some roasted notes and bitter chocolate (very slight)

M: It is okay - not great. Decent body.

O: I usually only rate one beer a day and I was tempted to dump this one and sneak in one more tonight. It is really underwhelming. No real flavor or smell to make it worth continuing. It has a best by date of 7/14/14 (next month) so it still has some life in theory. I won't get this one again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A fairly tasty but one dimensional porter.

Dark pour, is not as dark on further examination. Not a lot of carbonation but is a little froathy looking.

Not much smell

Taste is creamy smooth cream. Chocolate and coffee as well.

The medium bodied porter has a creamy mouth feel than manages to finish fairly dry.

Overall I like this beer but it is a little boring.
