COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Decker Porter was brewed in honor of our busing brothers across the pond. The beer has a silky chocolate character, which is balanced with British East Kent Golding and German Magnum hops. Combine that dark brown pour, velvety tan head, and decadent malt character, and you’ll find yourself doubling up on this brew for twice the enjoyment.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2014 Pours a nearly ipaque very dark brown. Short, yet perpetual dark taupe head. Light coffee and chocolate nose. Powdery mouthfeel. The chocolate and coffee come out a little more prominently than the nose.

The aroma is porterish with toasted malt chocolate but not much else. The appearance is dark brown with a large head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall very one note and forgettable.
