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

A: Poured a very dark brown with one finger of mocha head. The head diffused but stuck to the glass like a milk shake.

S: Very roasty with dark chocolate and some sweetness like creme brulee.

T: Starts off smooth and a bit hoppy with some herbalness. Then lots of burnt coffee and burnt toast. Somewhere in the middle there is very light hint of marshmellow sweetness and caramel/burnt sugar/molasses. Roasted malt asserts itself but then gives back a mellow burnt coffee and toast sensation. Herbal hops come back in the finish and a bite of dark chocolate puts an exclamation point.

M: Thin but strangely creamy. Plenty of fizz.

O: A very solid porter. Probably one of the best examples of a true porter I have tried. Its heavy on the burned and light on the roasty but the sweetness is just right. This one really needed to warm up to properly show off. I could have used a bit more roastiness and less on the burnt but how can I complain.
