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

This beer was served out of a 12oz. bottle dispensed into a glass....

Presentation - Love GLB label artwork and this is no different.

Appearance - Pours a very dark brown almost black color with a brown 1 1/2 finger head that dissipates slowly into a thin foam covering. Light lacing left on the glass.

Smell - Smells of roast coffee, dark chocolate and smoked malts.

Taste - Tastes of roast coffee and dark chocolate with a smokey hop undertone in the finish. A very robust complex flavor that is wonderful.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation.

Drinkability - Very smooth and tasty. Very drinkable.

One of my favorite GLB offerings and prob one of the better porters I have ever had. If you like porters this is an excellent choice.
