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

Appearance - Very dark, Mocha head.
Smell - Cocoa and malt aroma.
Taste - Roasted malt, bit of coffee, bit of cocoa. No hops.
Mouthfeel - Smooth. Perfect carbonation level for a stout.
Overall - For a lower ABV stout, this is a wonderful beer. Doesn't compete with the big beers, but that's not it's niche. Nice everyday porter.

Pours dark brown with 1/2 inch of khaki head.

Smell is of chocolate and creamy vanilla.

Taste is less chocolaty than the smell and a sweet faint vanilla flavor sneaks in toward the end.

Mouthfeel is somewhat creamy yet, remains refreshing with medium carbonation.

A solid example of American porter.
