This is a pretty damn tasty porter, I must admit.  It has those clean, roasted malt flavors that you expect, but it's also fairly light bodied, meaning it's not oppressive (as I usually expect).  There's also some serious bitterness and a nice level of acidity I rather enjoy... I think.  Or, it's a little too carby; but, it does get a bit smoother as it warms.

As you've realized I'm being very indecisive right now because I don't want to accept that I enjoyed a basic porter.  Dammit!  Whatever.  I like it.  It's tasty, has a kickass label, and is one of Ska's better offerings.  Regardless, I still don't understand the appeal of porters aside from food pairings.  Imperial porters can be unbelievably good--although I can't see how that matters here.  Whatever.  Long live indecisiveness!
