look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Medium brown with red/caramel coloring. Almost zero head that dissipates rapidly.
Aroma was very nice, notes of chocolate pudding, salted caramel, toasted oats and spice.
It had rich flavors of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. There was mild bitterness and lingering toasted oats flavors. It had a medium body which is nice for the alcohol content. It was very smooth, silky and light all at the same time. Really good porter.

Oh.

Em.

Gee.

This is absolutely the best porter I have ever had. I was lucky enough to spot a single at my local supermarket after scoring some SN Summerfest (I got a tip from another BA here that I might enjoy that pils, but I digress...)

This stuff pours out like a creamy cola, just less carbonated. Smells roasty without a hint of "burnt." Taste follows the nose, and my eyes actually rolled up in my head a little when I got my first sip of this. Very creamy without being thick. Smooth finish, making me want another sip right away.

Great Lakes makes some good stuff, I have yet to try anything that I didn't like from them. Add this to my Great Beer list!
