COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Very good porter, all the toast/chocolate/coffee tastes that you’d expect are there. It’s one of my favorite styles when done right, and this one definitely is. I will have to go on an Indy beer tour someday and try some more Fountain Square.

From sampler flight at the brewery on March 26, 2016. Dark amber/brown color, nice firm coffee nose, nice flavor of roasted malt and coffee. Not the biggest porter you’ll ever encounter but pretty good.

Bottle... Pours hazy and dark brown with a huge, creamy, lightly tanned head. Fantastic retention. The aroma features chocolate crème with light notes of espresso and caramel. Medium-bodied with zippy carbonation. The flavor is toasty, roasty and well-balanced. Nice, lingering, mocha finish. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!
