look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

500ml can into nonic pint. reads "30 04 15" on the bottom of the can, which i'm guessing is a best before date of april 30, 2015. enjoyed immensely on august 13, 2014

a: a very deep brown with dark ruby highlights, almost cola-like. almost two fingers of foamy tan head

s: chocolate and raisins up front. coffee, caramel, maybe cherries? some tobacco and smoke notes too

t: follows the nose. "rich, dark & complex" written on the can is a very accurate description. tons of chocolate and toffee up front, coffee afterwards, then the aforementioned dark fruit notes bring a mild but really pleasant sweetness. hints of syrup too? a delicious roast-char-smoke-tobacco character comes out towards the end. finishes with cocoa tastes and a drying coffee-like bitterness

m: creamy light to medium body. mild carbonation. nice!

o: one of my favourite beers ever. it's great that it's available and affordable too. a very wonderful low abv flavour bomb

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Nice deep almost black color. Good solid head of creamy small bubbles

Aroma of chocolate

Taste of semi-dark chocolate at first, warms to mocha, then ends with slight warmth

Full and rich mouthfeel that totally hides the alcohol

An outstanding porter
