GP was my home away from home when I was in school at Michigan, and the Bear Paw Porter was my unrivaled go-to beer. Dark and delicious, full, yet very sessionable if you've got a palate for delicious maltyness.

On tap at the brewpub.
An outstanding porter, as validated by the two enthusiastic homebrewers with me on this excursion. Has a rich, dark roasted malt flavor with faint smoke but no burnt notes. Lasting roasty aftertaste.

Near black in the glass, it is clear and has a partially durable tan head. Smooth.

Recommended.
