4.21/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

This was a solid porter, and it played well with a lot of milk chocolate notes.

Appearance: Thick brown, almost opaque unless you look at how it pours. Head is light tan just about a one finger's length with a hard vigorous pour.

Smell: Chocolate scent, comes off slightly roasted with hints of espresso.

Taste: This porter has a lot of stout feels in the mouthfeel. Slight coffee, but not a lot coming through. This porter has slight Smokey flavoring, but this porter is full of chocolate notes.

Picked up a bomber from BevMo in early November for $4.99. No bottling date.

Beer pouted cola brown with a decent tan head that dissipated quickly.

Nose is light roast and some cocoa.

Taste is roasted malts, dark cocoa, hints of dark fruits. There is enough hopping to balance out the sweetness.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and not overly smooth.

Overall this is a pretty tasty brew that has some good and average characteristics. Give it a shot as it is reasonably priced.
