4.13/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a dark brown with a tight thick tan head with great lacing.

Both the aroma and taste has loads of roasted malt flavors, sometimes in the disguise of coffee, and with caramel covered vanilla ice cream note backing them up melding them all together.

Has a good medium viscosity for a porter, thick enough to be great, but its not as thick as other porters such as Founders.
along with the medium oily viscosity it has a somewhat dryer finish, adding to the drinkability.

A very Solid Porter for the 6 pack format. This one along with, Founders,Deschutes, and Anchor are the 4 best buys there are in the land of porters. well done Great Lakes.
