3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with a thick, tan, lasting, lacy, frothy head. Smells of liquorish, coffee, roast, sweet malt, red berries, and a light freshness. Medium smooth thin, to oily body. Tastes of sweet berries, balanced against the coffee roast and a bit of ash. A bit thinish and flavourful but needs more roast.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aptly named beer. The mouthfeel is one of the best aspects of this already very nice, dark, rich beer. Chocolatey, very roasty, and smooth.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Strong aroma. Roasty. Hint of coffee. A touch of acidity. very nice.
A: Looks fine. Brown with tan head. Good lacing.
T: Very smooth taste. Verrry smooth. Hits with chocolate and roasty coffee. A little watery acidity in the middle. Finish is smooth and chocolatey.
P: A little watery. Solid though
Overall this is a very good porter. Lots of great roasty chocolate. The watery hit in the middle takes something away but otherwise a great blend of flavors.
