look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.

A- Pours a very deep brown body with a light brown 1" head that sits around for a while, leaving some even lacing.

S- Toffee, milk chocolate, yeasty, vanilla bean, coffee beans. Very inviting.

T- Milk chocolate and coffee upfront, vanilla and soft roasted malt on the finish.

M- Medium high-carbonation, lighter than most porter/stouts but very drinkable.

Solid beer, easy to drink, hits all the high points of this style. This was my first great lakes beer and I was impressed.
