look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

This beer pours a very dark brown color, but not quite black like stout. The aroma is of faint coffee/mocha. It tastes very chocolatey and slightly like coffee. Very sweet, no discernable hop flavor/scents at all. Its very smooth and drinkable. A tasty brew, but probably not one you could drink on a hot day or all the time. But it's great on a cold night like tonite.

3.63/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a two finger black n tan. Fine head, which fades too quickly to a film. Little lacing.

Restrained aromas of leather, wood shavings, and chocolate, a little coffee.

Taste is malt - not too roasted - and dark chocolate well integrated. Smooth finish. Quite a moderatley bitter porter rather than the sweeter style to go with higher ABVs.

Mouthfeel is nice and creamy, carbonation a little high for style.

Overall a solid English style porter. Moderate flavour overall, doesn't build, doesn't overtake itself. Good beer-drinkers beer. Not the worst of the JS offerings either.
