Thanks for tossing this my way Pete! Enjoyed from a left hand globe.

Brew pours a watery black with a thin off grey head that doesn't hang out long but leaves some spotty lace.
Nose is roast and char with chocolate backbone.
Taste is pretty down the middle with a good amount of porter char and roasted chocolate. Mouth is cooling and char and very porter like. Nothing really fancy about this, just a run of the mill porter. No big coffee, no deep chocolate, no vanilla...good, not great.

One of the lighter-colored porters I've had. It's quite nice.

Left Hand is always near front but not front of pack. This beer included. Very solid, would try again, juicy - great aroma - body - mouth feel.

A: 4 - Nice lacing and body, browner, tawnier than other porters.
S: 3.9 - Pungent, astringent, char and chocolate.
T: 3.7 - A nice solid porter, a bit sweeter and less complex than the best, but solid.
MF: 3.8
Overall - suggest a blind taste test with Anchor Steam, Smutty nose, and others.
