Pours a dark black brown with a 1 and a 1/2 finger mocha head. Decent amount of lacing on the glass.
Smells like baker's chocolate and coffee.
Taste follows the nose. Starts with a semi-sweet chocolate taste that leads into a roasted coffee taste.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Not a lot of carbonation which is to be expected.
Drinkability in a session is low since it is a pretty heavy beer. But I would have no problem making this a go to porter.

Poured from bomber into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a deep brown nearly black color with a big billowy tan head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving only a light level of lace on the sides of the glass
Smell- The aroma is quite heavy of roasted malt and a semi sweet chocolate smell. Mixed with these aromas are some sweeter caramel and vanilla aromas as well as the lightest touch of a nutty smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a roasted malt and cocoa flavor. As the flavor moves on it sweetens more as flavors of a caramel sweetness and vanilla enter the taste. These bring a more milk chocolate like flavor to the tongue. Toward the end however, the chocolate flavors of the brew grow even stronger bringing back a more cocoa and less milk chocolate flavor to the tongue. In the end, with a light hop flavor of a earthy nature and a light nutty flavor coming to the tongue, a lightly bittered semi-sweet chocolate flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is slightly on the lower side. The lower carbonation accentuates the dark roasted flavors as well as the chocolate flavors rather nicely, although a slightly thicker body may have enhanced these even more.
Overall- A rather tasty and sweeter chocolate porter. While not the most potent or flavorful overall it is rather easy to drink and quite satisfying. Not bad.
