I haven't been too crazy about Great Divide beers in a while, let's see if this reverses the trend. How is it that they are talking about this porter on the label as if it was a lager? Hmmm....I'm sure this must have been discussed on the forums at some point....but I'm too lazy to go find it.

Poured into a pint glass. Slightly less than opaque darkness, dark with some hints of red. Thin head but one that retains well.

Definitely some smoke in the aroma, but I get more chocolate and light coffee than smoke.

Smoke is the dominant flavor here, but in a mild way. Smoky but not overbearing. There's some of the chocolate mentioned in the aroma and also the light hints of coffee.

Thin in feel. Overall, this doesn't wow me, but at the same time I am finding it very easy to drink. I like what GD has done here with the low-ish ABV - it was a lot easier to reach for this bomber knowing that it was in the low 6% range rather than a 9% monster of a porter. Increasingly, I'm looking for "beers with flavor but not too high in ABV," and this bomber fits neatly in that category. I could see myself having another or two in the fridge.
