I have always loved this Porter, I guess I should write a review.

It looks : very dark chocolate brown body, no light penetrating. Head is almond colored and about 3 fingers tall. Leaves generous lacing on the sides have of the glass.

It smells : Cocoa bean, chocolate, earth, bread crust, hop. A nice bouquet and medium strength.

It tastes : charred and smoky earth, faint cocoa powder, some hop leaf, ending with notes of charcoal, grass, and charred cocoa.

It feels : somewhat flat and watery, but that could be freshly washed glass. Mildly carbonated, smooth, ends dry.

Overall : Always a good brew to have, halfway through my six pack and I'll buy one again when I run out. I always recommend it at our store.

Very smooth, tasty porter, with sweet, caramel-like malt flavors. Definitely among my favorite porters, a classic.
