12 oz. bottle, with a best by date of 07/04/2013. Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.
A - Somewhat aggressive pour yields about two fingers of mocha colored head on top of a virtually opaque black colored body with the tiniest ruby dot showing through some light.
S - Chocolate. Roasted coffee bean aroma. Vanilla. Cream. Slightly nutty. Vague hint of dark fruits like raisin and figs. Smells very enticing. Has a strong aroma yet has a lot of very distinct smelling parts to it.
T - Smooth, creamy, chocolate coffee bean flavor. Taste is definitely jam packed with flavor. Bitter roasted coffee beans, silky chocolate, roasted oats and malts, vague hop bitterness. Subtle brown sugar sweetness. There is a lot going on here. An excellent tasting beer.
M - Feel is creamy, silky, smooth, and light. Some coffee bean / hop bitterness lingers out for a little while. Very excellently balanced and bodied, with hardly any noticeable carbonation at all.
Overall, an excellent beer, and highly recommended. Since I discovered them about two years ago, Great Lakes has ceased to disappoint me. Possibly my favorite porter yet, from one of my all-time favorite breweries. Moderate 5.80% abv, and highly drinkable, if you can obtain this beer in your area, there is no excuse not to give it a shot.
