4.6/5  rDev +8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Best by 5/31/14 12893DE bottle into standard pint glass at 48 degrees
Lovely aroma of chocolate and roasted malt
Head large (6 cm), light brown, rocky, quickly diminishing to 1.5 cm which slowly decreases to 1 cm.
Lacing OK, mostly wrapping around the glass and looking like torn lace
Body clear red-amber, no chill haze
Flavor very chocolatey and malty, very subdues hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Finishes with a slight bitterness with a moderate hang time
Medium palate, slightly oily, soft carbonation

An excellent porter which, IMHO, should be Great Lakes flagship beer.
