Decent porter, but nothing special.

Light chocolate malt nose with some Graham cracker, marshmallow, dry malt, roasted grain and smoky embers.

The flavors are very muted and hard to distinguish. I do get some chocolate malt, light embers, touch of smoke and a bit of barley.

This is quite thin, kind of airy and has a bit of carbonation bite.

Not much here, certainly not offensive but just not much personality to distinguish it from others.

Not the best porter I have had. Tastes like a dark Budweiser. I hope that I got a bad glass or the wrong beer, but I didn't get any of the overtones I read about in the reviews.

The Green Man Porter is one of my favorite porters. Very smooth. Hint of chocolate and coffee, and slight smoky finish. But that is what I expect in a porter. My only criticism is the head. It has none and almost seems flat. Still a good beer. If you like porters, definitely try this one.
