look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Looks good, ruby brown and clear, nice brown head that lasts and leaves sticky lacing.

The aroma and flavor have a slight astringent note, a little bit of metallic as well. Toasty, nutty, malty, and a little bit of roasty flavors and smells are noted. I note a little graininess and some sweetness, like brown sugar.

The body could be thicker, it's a bit thinner than I'd prefer my porters.

Overall it's an interesting choice, but not particularly outstanding.
