Bottle from the brewery, 11/20/2014. Pours black, thin silky white head, thin ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma is roasted dark malts with notes of coffee and dark chocolate, pleasant orange hoppy character emerging as the beer warms, some grass. Taste is cocoa nut, mild citrus with more prominent pine hop character mingling with roasted dark malts in moderately bitter finish. Light body, very smooth. Good, nice porter, lot of flavor packed in.

Cantabrian (970) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 26, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2014 Herbal hoppy on the aroma and flavour - with grapefruit, lemon and lemon grass as the main players, over the expected roasted aromas and taste. My bottle didn’t grant me much of a head, but just the nice, blackish beer. In spite of my skepticism towards herbal black ales and all types of black IPAs, I was positively surprised by the ease of drink of this porter, going down quite nicely. I still much prefer their Coalface Stout.

We’ve been lucky here in Christchurch with the seasonal offerings of dark beers in abundance. This is a healthy addition and initially appears, smells and tastes like a typical to style porter. Tasted off handpull at Volstead, appears dark in colour with a good collar of mocha head. The nose is of darker roasty malts and the first flush of flavours is just that as well. As you get used to this and begin to wonder where the New York part of things comes in, the beer undergoes a subtle transformation with grapefruit hoppiness beginning to shine through. For something that seems like an incongruous character, it is done very well. It just belongs there and makes the beer longer finishing than it otherwise would have been. A good go-to porter this one.
