Sammy (11811) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2011
A tasty though not great porter. Yes, chocolate and sweetness all whipped up, fluffy and granular malted milk mouthfeel. The bitterness is hops and I was Ok with it, although my 23-year old who shared the bottle thought it was a it metallic and not spot on the style.
