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

Pours a deep black with a nice 1 finger tan frothy head. Smell is a great combo of light chocolate and breakfast blend type coffee. On tasting I am pleased with the smoothness of the mouthfeel, not weak like some porters, really bordering on more of what I find in stouts. Carbonation is readily apparent but doesn't become overbearing. Taste is exceptional. Perfect blend of the light chocolate and coffee roast present in aromas. Some biscuity goodness is there as well. This is a beer that solidly deserves it standing as one of the best representations of the porter style.
