3.48/5  rDev -18.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle into a SA perfect pint glass. Best by date of 11/30/11.

A- Pours a rich dark amber from bottle that sits a very dark brown hue. A very big light mocha head forms before residing to a good capping. Good filmy lacing.

S- Chocolate and coffee upfront. Pretty good aroma. Could be stronger and have more depth.

T- Bittersweet chocolate all over the palate. There is some bitter zest. A very light smoke on the back end. Good.

M- Starts medium bodied then thins out. Stays wet through entire taste and finish. There is a lingering tang on the palate.

O- A good porter overall. Could have more depth and a fuller feel. Glad I tried, but wouldn't go out of my way for it.
