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

Appearance: Dark, minimum light escapes through. Held up to the light though it has hints of ruby red. REALLY nice tan creamy head though, about 1-2 1/2 fingers of head if poured aggressively.

Smell: I get a VERY nice chocolate/ roasted coffee aroma from this with a nice roasted malt smell.

Taste: You definitely get that chocolate and roast taste, and also a little bit of vanilla, as it warms it keeps a good consistent taste. It's not the BEST porter I've ever had but its a great one and has been my go to as of late.

Mouth Feel: Just as the bottle states. Very creamy, smooth, and it goes down easily not a whole lot of carbonation.

Overall: As I stated this has been my go to porter as of late. It's very relaxing to drink and just overall a delicious classic porter.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

This is a very good beer. Beautiful head, nice lacing, dark cola color with a little coffee dryness.

Appearance: What a porter should look like, dark cola brown, chocolate head with nice lacing.

Smell: Malty caramel, nice malt note, not very hoppy.

Taste: Good example of the style, just enough bitter. Great taste.

Mouthfeel: Dry, crisp, medium body.
