Thanks skybluwaters for this extra
Poured into a tulip. This beer presented with a rocky three finger frothy head. Body of the beer is jet black w/ mocha cap. As head deflates there is sticky lacing left on the glass.
The moment I popped the bottle, the aroma of chocolate hit me in the face. Getting my nose in the glass and taking a deep whiff, it's like i'm smelling chocolate milk. I'm letting this beer warm up a little and roasted malts and a touch of smoke is now present.
Initial sip, I can taste some roasted malts, accompanying the finish is a little bitterness, almost like drinking black coffee. As this beer opens up I can taste more smoke in the finish.
The body on this beer feels light/ medium. This one has a good amount of carbonation. Goes down pretty smooth and clean.
This is my first beer from Great Lakes and I'm glad to have been able to try this one. This is a porter I could drink a few bottles of in a sitting. It's a nice change of pace from all the Imperial porters and stouts I usually drink. Very good beer, and one that I will use to compare all other american porters too. Nice beer!
