Best by 11.30.14. Drank 7.6.14. Poured into a 12oz Tulip.

A: Pours an opaque ebony, with no light escaping around the glass edge. THICK tan head, one finger after a moderate pour. Small pitting, light foamy lacing, fades to a thing cap rather quickly. A beautiful looking porter.

S: Smoked malt, caramel, dark chocolate, and a very mild hop back aroma.

T: Delicious. No need to extrapolate further.

M: Light creamy body, just the right amount of carbonation, no trace of alcohol, no lingering bitterness, finishes extremely clean. Great drinkability for such a flavorful porter.

O: Fantastic. A great pick up at 7.99/6, but considering the local options (Founders and Edmund Fitzgerald) are equal if not better, I can't imagine having this one again anytime soon. So unless you live in the Great Lakes, this is the Porter you need to be drinking.
