Was a bit underwhelmed, but may be adjusting to the difference between English Porter and American Porter. Didn't detect much flavor or complexity in the taste and left not much of a mouthfeel.

L: Looks great dark rich brown color. Has a slight head left over after pouring into cup.

S: Smells good lol.

T: The taste is good.. Well better than good just don't have the right word to use for it. I'm still a rookie but I guess I'm starting to learn the difference between English porter and American Porter. I prefer American at the current moment till proven otherwise. It is still a well put together beer.

F: This beer does the job makes me feels good. Quality brewing.

O: Its a little pricey for a 4 pack in my area in Hawaii but I feel lucky to try a world class beer such as this one. Not my favorite but if I ever feel like it I'll get another pack of this beer. Can't wait to try there other types that they make.

Was expecting more really, but I think it's just my preference in Porter styles.
