I don't know if it's the wrong time of year for porters (too warm), if this was past its prime (the month brewed wasn't marked), or if I'm just growing away from the porter style, but I was completely underwhelmed by this beer. Shame, too, because I had high hopes, expecting some rich, chocolatey after dinner type beer. But it was thin, letting in much more light than I thought allowable. Not much aroma at all. Taste was flat, dusty, maybe some coffee hints but no chocolate. A real disappointer. Too bad.
