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.
