Had a cold bottle earlier this evening with some roast chicken and garlic potatoes. Nice dark brown/black pour with a tan head. Very smooth smoky/caramel/mocha flavor that balanced well with the meal. Slightly bitter finish but not overpowering. I'm not a huge fan of porters but my local shop had a 6er of this for $6.99, well worth the risk for that price.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: The beer is black when viewed from afar—upon closer inspection and when held up to a bright light dark amber is visible near the bottom of the glass and a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high tan head that died down rather quickly, leaving a thin film of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of burnt and roasted malts are present in the nose along with notes of chocolate malts. The smell becomes stronger once the beer warms up.
T: The taste very much follows the smell, except that the chocolaty flavors are a lot stronger and there is a light amount of hop bitterness.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink but has a nice amount of malty aromas and flavors, particularly those of chocolate malts. I found it to be a good representation of the style.
