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

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

Pours an opaque black with a dense tan head that leaves some light lacing all the way down the glass.

The aroma is bready and roasted malts, maybe a little roasted coffee and nuts as well.

Wonderful taste with rich, roasted malts tasting of chocolate and roasted coffee and a little bit of dark fruit. There is a nice, slight hoppy finish.

The mouthfeel is creamy and rich.

Overall, I think this is an outstanding porter.
