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

A: Very dark brown, fine coffee head, no carbonation visible through the inkiness. Constellations of lacing.

S: Dark chocolate, roasted almost burnt malt, a hint of alcohol.

T: Bitter, dark malts, chocolate nibs, some hop-provided pine residue on the finish, also contributing to the lasting bitterness. Dark, heavy, lasting, but not overpowering.

M: A little filmy, but pretty fluid. Only slight carbonation, enough to keep it from flatness.

O: Powerful dark flavors, significant hops (for a dark beer), yet easily drinkable. Really impressed, this is my go-to when I need a dark beer in the summer months.

wow! finally got a six pack of this & i love it!
tastes overall more like a stout than a porter, but whatever...
HST & Ralph Steadman & Flying Dog will all three,always be cool in my book!
this was not available in indiana for some reason-i wrote to FD & asked why because alot of their other beers are,but i got no real good answer...for no good reason.
my ma found it for me in california on a trip out there & brought it back...thanks ma!
