Our porter is brewed in the traditional English style. It has a deep brown color and a creamy tan head. The mouth feel is highlighted with soft notes of chocolate and slight undertones of roasted coffee. Hop bitterness is nicely balanced with the malt and hop aroma being very low, typical of the English style.

ben4321 (5250) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from Andy, 8/2/14

Aroma: The aroma is a mix of sweet caramel/toffee, coffee, and roasted malts
Appearance: It pours a muddy brown color with a thin head and quite minimal lace
Flavor: In the flavor the coffee comes out more, while the sweetness mutes a bit compared to the nose
Palate: It has a light-medium body with a smooth, clean feel, soft carbonation, and a roasted finish
Overall Impression: At first I thought this one was going to lean sweet, but the flavor is actually much drier than you’d expect from the nose. It gets a hint watery though, unfortunately, but it is still a pretty solid beer.
