look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle poured into imperial pint glass.

A - Black with some hints of dark brown. One finger of creamy chocolate head.

S - Roasted coffee, sweet chocolate, caramel. Lots of roasted character.

T - Lots of sweet chocolate and caramel, along with roasted coffee and a slight bitterness.

M - Moderately thick with very smooth and creamy carbonation. It's got a nice stickiness to it, with a lingering presence of chocolate and coffee on the aftertaste.

O - A fantastic porter that hits all the right notes
