look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours clear, dark brown in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is cocoa, cola, and a bit of char. Light bodied for the style, sweet and roasty, medium-high carbonation. Makes for a solid and tasty, true to style English porter. Not one to rush out for, but not one to pass up either.

A dark beer (porter) with a taste and smell of coffee. Has a very smooth character with a slightly bitter taste and low carbonation. It's 6% by volume.

Lazy Magnolia Gulf Porter

Appearance: dark brown, medium head, and some lacing.

Smell: hops and cocoa.

Taste: rich cocoa malts, plentiful hops, and a subtle toffee.

Mouthfeel: liquidy but also slightly chewy.

Overall:
This is a nice brew. It is more complex than it initially appears. The bottle names a few other ingredients that I am not able to detect.
