look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Classic Porter appearance with great viscosity balance

Smell: Rich malty tones

Taste: Rich balance of chocolate, carmel, and coffee, with a slight bitterness but not overwhelming for a porter. Smooth.

Mouthfeel: Smooth rich porter

Overall: A great balance of flavors with a nice balance on the viscosity as well for a great porter. Makes for a great fall or winter brew.
