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

Presentation: 12 oz. brown long neck with a "enjoy by" date on the label.

Appearance: Ink black with a thick foamy and sticky tan lace.

Smell: Malty with hints of dark roasted coffee and ghost like woody and smoky aromas. Malted milk balls come to mind also, light alcoholic notes also

Taste: Large and robust with a medium to full body, crisp and flavourful. Brimming with flavours of dark unsweetened chocolate and lightly smoky charcoal from the dark malts. Enough hops to keep this brew lively and it even adds a faded woody character also. Iced espresso. The finish cleans up a tad though there is still a good amount of dark malt and residual sweetness in the end.

Notes: Complex and devastatingly flavourful. Not for the faint of heart ... a porter drinker's porter. Going for the old style porter ... with a new style flavour. Perfect for a raw winters night. 7.0% abv.
