COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Make the long night shorter, Forgetting not, Good stout old English Porter.” — R. H. Messenger

Luscious and silky smooth with a body to match, OP Porter is uncompromisingly rich yet surprisingly drinkable. A complex blend of dark malts and real milk sugar creates the bold flavors of dark roast coffee mingling with farm fresh cream. For the stout and porter lover in each of us, OP is a knockout.

Pairing suggestions: Cave-aged Bleu cheese, arancini with veal ragu, roast pork with gravy, bacon burger with fried egg and cheddar cheese, molten chocolate cake.

Draft at Churchkey during DC Craft Beer Week. Poured a dark brown color with a small off-white head, ruby edges. Aroma was some roasted malts, with some chocolate. Flavor was roasted malts, chocolate. Interesting. Is this a sweet stout or a porter? Will the world ever know?

Aurelius (4199) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2014
INky, very little of the ringing tan foam. Roasty, slightly creosotic aroma. Smoky, rauchbier-tasting at times, coffee tang, very lightly sweet. Sweet aftertaste. The beer gets clingy after a while. On tap, Proof, downstairs with LuckyDog.
