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

12oz bottle (bottled on 08/04/11) poured into a Shaker pint glass.

Appearance: Clear dark ruby red to brown beer. Light tan head was about 1/4" thick on pouring, but died down to a ring at the edge and very little across the top - barest skin of foam. Some strands of persistent lacing noted.

Smell: Molasses mostly - maybe a little bit bready on a swirl.

Taste: Molasses again. Malt-heavy beer. Molasses at the front, some roasted and caramel flavor malt in the middle, and a quite mild bitter finish, mildly metallic and part black coffee. Is indeed a pretty tasty porter.

Mouthfeel: Decent carbonation, just a hair thicker than water.

Overall / Drinkability: A decent English Porter. Quite drinkable, went well with food (Welsh Rabbit) and I could see myself having another. Simplistic flavor profile, but that's not a bad thing really.
