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

A: Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, fairly aggressively. Body is black with a small tan/light brown head. No real lace other than some "legs" now and again.

S: Not too strong in the nose - some roast, some coffee and some chocolate. Nice for a porter, but not in-your-face strong. Maybe as it warms the nose will get stonger. . . .

T: Real nice. Chocolate malt, some roastiness, a hint of charcoal and a good dry bitter finish that calls to mind char or charcoal again.

M: Medium in heft, carbonation is pretty active.

O: Good stuff. A real nice porter.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on January 11, 2013.

It has a beautiful extra dark brown to practically black pour with a delicate, tan head bobbing on top and slowly diminishing.

The aroma is dark, smoky, and full of chocolate and coffee esters. It smells like a Porter should and invites me in.

The body is creamy and bold.

The taste is very much reflective of the aroma with an array of dark malts, yeast, chocolate, coffee grinds, and smoke. Topnotch.
