BBB63 (6373) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2012
12 oz bottle and served in my Bells tulip: Pours a near opaque hue with a small fading head. The aroma has notes of heavy roast, coffee, pipe tobacco, tar, minerals, cashews, earthy hops and a bit of pine too. The taste profile is well balanced between the coffee-ish bitterness, hops bitters, sweeter base malts and a touch of chocolate covered walnuts. It is not all that deep of a profile but still a straight shooter with much to offer. The mouth feel is ashy and a tad chalky. Overall a solid enough porter with a nod towards the more British styled porters than a Baltic which was what I was expecting honestly.
