  • Pours opaque with several inches of light brown, frothy foam into my no name pint glass. Retention is almost creamy and long lasting.

    Aroma is malts: light but dark chocolate with a big blast of nuts. A little bit of roasted malt rounds it out. That's about it.

    Taste is nut and roasted malts, leaning more on the nutty end. Roasted and dark chocolate bitterness come through in the end with the chocolate bitterness staying around a bit as well as the roasted, burnt flavor here and there.

    A bit thinner than expected but average in carbonation. Dry.

    Nothing over the edge but definitely a fine drinking porter. Solid on each level, showing through with the fact that I want more. Lake Louie quietly keeps knocking 'em out of the park. Enjoy!
