One of my favorite porters. Love the taste. The only criticism I wish it had a touch more carbonation .

I really like this beer, not 5's across the board like, but I belive it more than deserves a 90 score here on BA. It's like the Breakfast Stout's little sister. So I'm pumping up my score to move the needle. Full disclosure.

Also, it's possible having it on tap at the brewery makes it tase a li'l bit better than, say, out of a bottle from Kappy's or Blanchard's, as most people probably have.
