Nose is tight. Mouth feel could pass for 3.5. Flavour wise it just barely hits all the marks.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Pours dark brown (nearly black) with a small, dense, mushroom-colored head. Decent retention. The aroma is a melange of chocolate creme, toasted tree nuts and vanilla. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor is burnt and moderately bitter with a carbonic, charcoal finish. Well-crafted and cleanly brewed.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2014 Bottle. Moderate to heavy malt notes of dark toasted dark bread, dark chocolate and mild coffee, light resin and earth for the hops and yeast. Head is small, frothy/creamy, light brown with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, creamy with a carbonation between lively and fizzy and finishes very dry. A rich and tasty Porter with a dry and bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2015 "Starts out with a nice robust aroma of malted chocolate, dark fruit, caramel. Flavor is nice if a little muddled. More sweet, less roast than I’d like. But that said it was still Pretty nice."
A brewery visit has me questioning the bottle quality from these guys as EVERYTHING including this was significantly better on tap. Not just a little. Nice rich robust porter. 3.2-3.8.
