Straight pour into an English pub. No head, which was a little disappointing. Black coffee color, from the top there are hints of caramel, coca cola-like.

Smell is not blatantly obvious, underlining aroma of roasted coffee beans with malts and chocolate. The smell right before drinking reminds me of chocolate milk.

Taste isn't too bitter, definitely chocolate, espresso, kind of taste. I also taste the roasted malts and coffee beans.

Mouthfeel reminds me of drinking flat coca-cola and finishes with a smooth, rich after taste. Body isn't too full like most porters, which makes this beer's drinkability higher than most.
