Score Appearance Smell Taste Mouthfeel Overall Impression Year

Pours a leathery brown, settles nearly black, but is very deep and super dark brown with a thin tan head that fades fast, some intricate webby lacing sticks at first but then begins to disappear.
Smell is nice and chocolatey, thick, full, lush, sweet, a bit roasty with a chocolate cake aroma thats very fresh and a pleasure to wiff in.
Taste is somewhat subdued with mostly chocolate malts leading the way, good flavor that last for a time but is kinda mild til some roastyness settles across the palate with a duller sweetness and small dry hop bitterness and then drys out nicely later in the finish with a fluffy cocoa powder-like coating the mouth and cheeks.
Feel is medium bodied, pretty solid from start to finish and a nice drying finish that really did the trick for me. A good porter, will enjoy again...
