Review from notes. A classic staple from Great Lakes enjoyed many times before, reviewed formally here for the 1st time.
Pours a dark mahogany with a thin mocha lacing around the rim of a Blackout Stout pint glass.
Smells of biscuit like malts, coffee and a bit of cocoa/dark chocolate perhaps.
Taste/Mouthfeel great full flavor right up in the front, a good sipper w/o being overwhelming this sipping is for savoring as the abv is but a kiss amidst a semi-sweet malt with a nice roast coffee finish. Overall, a nice full and rich porter very well done.

Single 12 oz bottle given to me by a friend. Served into a stemmed glass. Dark brown body with a great sized tan head. Nice aroma of cocoa powder and chocolate milk. Flavor was spot on also. Dark chocolate, licorice, and just a hint of root beer were flavors that all melded well together. The mouthfeel was a bit thinner than other porters I have had recently, but conversely it made this beer even smoother to drink. Lastly, this beer had one of the smoothest finishes I have had with a porter. There was no roasted aspect left on your palate at all in the end. A very clean finish. Really great brew - I am glad I got this bottle as a souvenir from a fellow beer geek.

This is an overall porter of overallishness.
Looks just like a porter.
Smells of the roasted malts what gives an toasty roasty choco and smoky.
Love that same thing in the mouth on tasting it - but the body is lighter than a stout. This I like. You get a good roasty semi-sweet dark chocolate flavor with a little hop bite on the finish, and it stays out of the heavy zone unless you eating a big meal and trying to finish this too fast to leave the restaurant like my guy mikey does. He goes so fast always; like a hooker with his mouth!
This is just a darn good porter all around.
