T: Mild Coffee flavors, bitter Chocolate, Roasted Malts with a pleasant bitter finish.

12oz bottle into nonic pint. Enjoy by date is 06/26/13

A: Deep, black-brown coffee color, with mahogany tones when held up to light. Thin, quickly dissipating, khaki head leaving little lacing.

S: Dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans, light and sweet toasted bread malts.

T: Warm, dark, chocolate , followed by slightly burnt toast, bittersweet espresso with slightly smokiness in the finish. Very little in the way of hop bitterness. Excellent

M: Medium body with moderate carbonation. It has a silky and soft mouthfeel.

O: One outstanding American porter. It's super flavorful without being overwhelming and is perfectly balanced. This is one of my favorite beers for wintertime. GLBC continues to amaze.
