Not overwhelimngly unique. Pretty run of the mill porter. Good. But stamdard.

Look. Dark coffee brown, medium sized, medium brown froth.
Smell. Yeasty, fresh, toasted ness, no coffee or chocolate for me, maybe a hint of caramel.
Taste. Slight nod to the hoppy side, bit of malty sweetness.
Mouth feel. Medium heavy body, puckery dry oni the back of the palate, slightly chewy, a bit more oily than watery.
Overall. Not too complex, maybe the IBU's, though moderate, overwhelm the malts. I like 'em more robust and malty.

Light, rich, sweet yet slightly dry. Being only 20 minutes from their brewery I can attest to the fresh quality of all of BBC's beers. This is a very traditional porter, complex enough with notes of chocolate malt while being extremely drinkable as well. Great every day drinker for those colder days.

$8.99 for a growler. Its tasty, its fresh, and its a great value. I can't find anything negative about it, for what it is.

Poured from a 1.89L jug. Great head and lacing all the way down. Probably a bit on the lighter side regarding maltiness as far as porters go, but a nice hoppy balance to it. Above average brew beyond a doubt, but not world-class (the Anchor Porter being my gold standard).
