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

Poured into a tall pint glass, color is dark brown, amber edges, head is perfect 0.5 inch plus presentation, color is tan, small lacing medium bubbles and froth.

Smell ideal, roasted malts, coffee, light toffee and chocolate notes, nice pleasant grassy hop bitterness.

Taste is clean roasted malt, nice pleasant malt sweetness comes from chocolate and toffee flavors, bitterness is strong enough to balance the sweetness, but flavors are subdued, light grass and pine.

Mouthfeel is right where you would feel these flavors, upfront on the tongue, solid sweet flavors and bitter balance.

Overall, a very solid porter, solidly sweet, yet strong roast and bitter notes to counter.
