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

Appearance: Pours deep, dark brown with a frothy 2 finger head. Lacing is erratic but probably due to the glass I'm using.

Smell: Chocolate, coffee, and dark fruits

Taste: A really nice dry roasty taste at the beginning which gives way to waves of chocolate and dark fruit flavors as the beer warms up

Mouthfeel: Pleasantly creamy. I would prefer just a bit more carbonation but this is probably spot-on for the style

Overall: An excellent, easy drinking porter that I am glad has found its way to WI. I wish the dry roasty taste would linger a little longer to balance out the sweetness, but this is an excellent brew, and I look forward to drinking the rest of this 6 pack and trying other offerings from Deschutes
