When I initially rated this, it was as a side by side with Bell's Porter, before I began writing reviews instead of just ticking. It's too bad because it would have been nice to see my thoughts at the time relating the two.

This beer brings perfectly roasted malt, hints of smoke, and baker's cocoa together in harmony and balance in a very drinkable beer that can be consumed in relatively large quantities while still seeming substantial, and not watery in the slightest.
