Very balanced, smooth and drinkable. No heaviness or imposing flavor. It is so balanced, some might find that it lacks the distinctive character of other porters. But, it's tough to play it both ways. Sometimes the imposing flavor that gives other porters the unique character is exactly what makes those porters less drinkable over the long haul. The Bros are right, this is a great beer; it's the kind of porter that is a refrigerator staple. Porters inherently have character, and this one finds a very nice balance all the way around; if you like dark beers, you can drink this one all day, every day, all year long. It is extremely well-crafted.

Decent light porter. Good flavor and not a bad after taste.
