4.43/5 rDev +4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Thick black liquid and a pretty good amount of white foam.
Smell: Strong coffee and chocolate malts. An incredibly wonderful! I love this! Some burnt sugar as well I think.
Taste/Mouthfeel: More amazing coffee and chocolate malt. Basically tastes like a Starbucks drink. Pretty smooth mouthfeel as well. Not very creamy, but lots of carbonation that smoothens this out.
Drinkability: Amazing smell and taste make this an extremely drinkable beer.
Overall: Great Lakes strikes again. This might head the list.

3.5/5 rDev -17.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
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.
