Overall Impression: I was surprised by the drink-ability. I was expecting it to be hard to get down. I was completely wrong. It almost feels like you’re drinking a light beer. It was very easy to drink! Although I wouldn’t drink this beer with a meal, I think it would be great for an after dinner drink. This is one of my uncles favorite beers so we had to taste it asap! I’m very happy with this porter and would definitely buy it again. Funny that the first taste and aftertaste were exactly the same tastes but in a different order. I think this was a good quality. Only negative I could come up with is that I didn’t notice any smoked flavor which is by all means, fine with me.
