550 ml bottle was poured into an imperial pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger mocha head that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a pitch black color with no clarity or bubbles seen coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glad as the beer was drank.

Smell: Mocha, toasted malts, smoke, sweet pale malts, and roasted malts.

Taste: Some vanilla, roasted, mocha, bittersweet chocolate, smoke, and a little bitterness. A little sourness to it too like the style originally was made.

Mouthfeel: Silky and creamy smooth, full bodied, low carbonation, and a little chewy. What a nice treat.

Overall: Pretty solid porter. Such a classic.
