This Porter is good! no doubt these guys put some time in to make this brew. That said the mouth feel for me was a little thin. I am of course comparing this to Everette which is Legendary. All in all this beer holds it's weight with a good roasty aroma and taste. If you like porters this beer is worth the jingle.

Bottom Line: Porter Lovers unite!
