4.43/5  rDev +4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

A - Very Dark Brown to Jet black. Good Head retention for a porter with a cream color. Good.

S - Malts, Coffee, Chocolate, subtle expresso.

T - I usually drink imperial porters, but this was outstanding for a regular porter. Lots of complexity and depth considering the low ABV (for me). Nice balance of hops and malts, yet exceptionally creamy. Vanilla and subtle Creme Brulee flavors come to mind. I get lots of toasted malts in the finish.

M - Very creamy for a porter. Full bodied, bold, and Dark. Great.

D - Exceptional! I could have a few of these.
