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

Look - great head and lacing and so so so dark.
Smell - interesting smoke which I'm guessing is the Mexican sugar with some hop smell but more toasted malt than anything.
Taste - great malty beer with good amount of hops and smoky like the smell.
Feel - fantastic medium thick body with slight creaminess and light to medium body.
Overall - fantastic very different porter!
