5/5 rDev +40.8%
Outstanding porter. Had one fresh off a new keg that was delivered that day.
Super dark with a thick creamy light caramel colored head. Outstanding smell, a bit of bitterness with rich malts. Great taste, bits of coffee, chocolate, and some hops bittering. Superb mouthfeel, thick and rich, like drinking a loaf of bread.
Super drinkable, would love to have more of this, actually planning a trip to go and get a couple growlers.

A-Pours a dark brownish/black with ruby highlight..little head
S-Roasty with notes of milk chocolate, coffee and cream.
T-Nice and richly flavored with dimensions of chocolate, a lightly burnt maltiness, and a small hit of caramel/molasses sweetness. I REALLY like the flavor of this one. Light spicy kick on the finish most likely from the 60 IBU Fuggles.
M-Lower carbonation as I am finding with all the LL beers but this one works fine with the lower carbonation. Creamy and smooth drinking. Seems substantial. I'd call the body on the high side of medium.
D-Definitely the best of their regular offerings and well worth seeking out. I think this compares favorably (not saying it is better or worse but in the ballpark) with the top porters I have had.
