I really like this. A nice basic porter, but sessionable with rich malt flavor and a clean aftertaste. Very good.

Aroma is lighter but smoky oaky. A little earthy. A little campfire. Looks ok. A little light on the pour. Look darker brown in the glass. This really is the most porter like beer I think I’ve ever had.... Lighter but has a nice smoky and metallic and oak note. The key here is the taste is sharp and finishes quickly rather than having a lingering grossness. Palate is smooth. Lighter but still flavorful. This is why I love beer and this is why I’m sad I moved from michigan. This beer is so on point.... Perfect for the style. Lighter but with great flavors. The epitome of what a porter should be.

Many years ago this was the first porter I tasted. It is still one of my favorites of this under appreciated style. The aroma notes malt and chocolate notes and the taste reveals coffee undertones balanced perfectly between the deep chocolate malt and subtle hops.

Chocolate malts are very present. Slight coffee aftertaste. Low hop aroma and bitterness. Very drinkable porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A simple, straightforward porter but by no means does this mean average. Its strength is in its simplicity. Very drinkable for one bottle or more. I prefer strong simple straightforward porters and this one is the best example Iin my limited tastings. Those who want more complex flavors may not prefer it but they would be hard pressed to find fault with it. The detailed reviews cover the particulars and would not expect much variation.

This is a really nice porter. Thick mouthfeel, chocolate aroma with a roasted coffee flavor.

One of my absolute favorite porters, and I love my porters. Very smooth, malty, and rich. The finish stays with you (and I'm glad it does).
