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

Appearance: Thick and dark. Pours very viscous with a thin head. Very fine lacing.

Smell: Dark chocolates. Vanilla notes. A good sweetness. The nose is good and comes out more as it warms a little bit but still a little soft.

Taste: Wow. Really comes out swinging. Strong chocolate notes. Figs and dark nuts. A really nice amount of vanilla. The flavor is quite intense which is kind of unexpected but very awesome. I can tell the alcohol is there but it is subtle and really greats a nice backbone.

Mouthfeel: Wow again. There is a fantastic carbonation and viscosity combo here.

Overall: Wow. This is in a grey region between stout and imperial porter but the moral of the story is that this beer is amazing. Much stronger in flavor than I thought. There is a fantastic amount of chocolate playing with vanilla in here which comes out of no where for porters. The sweetness is spot on! I really can't think of much to be improved on the taste front. Without a doubt, one of the best porters I have ever had. This is just what beer is all about.
