A- appears dark brown/ black. Traditional coloring for a porter
S-light smell of coffee, not overpowering at all.
T- overflowing with roasted malt flavor. Some of the flavor is coffee like, other is more chocolate flavored.
M- gets better the more time it spends in your mouth.
D- Though it ght , it is completely full of flavor like a stout, it is light enough that you don't feel winded by the end of the beer.
One of the best porters I've ever had.

Poured around 60 degrees (F) into a chilled Weissen glass.
A - Two fingers of sticky tan head that hung around for a couple minutes, before settling into about a half-finger's worth with some lacing of the glass. Very dark brown, although the tiniest bit of light shines through when held up to a lamp, revealing clarity and a slight ruby tinge. No evident carbonation (besides the head).
S - roasty malt notes on the nose, but not very forward. I'm finding a weak nose to be a trend with the Great Lakes stuff.
T - Nice roasty malt character, with some hints of chocolate, black cherry, cola, and maybe a touch of coffee. Sweetness of a cola balanced with bitterness of dark chocolate or coffee. No hop presence.
M - a bit flabby. Medium to full bodied like whole milk, but I'm getting an aqueous impression (as though water was added). Little to no noticeable carbonation.
Very good, but the flavors seem a little disjoint and the mouthfeel is just ok. Not the most mind-expanding porter I've had lately.
