This English-style Porter is brewed with oatmeal to give a smooth,silky mouthfeel and roasted malts to give notes of coffee and chocolate. Malty and full-bodied, the East City Porter is a session ale that you could still dry out and knit a sweater with. Brewed with 90% local malts and 10% imported specialty malts from Germany, and 100% local hops.

On tap at Great Leap’s hutong location (#6). Deep black with a tan head and a fudge/cocoa aroma. Light bodied verging on watery, the taste is cocoa, roasted oats and a bit of bitter sweetness. Not bad but needs more body.

adasko (1883) - Poznan, POLAND - MAR 17, 2016
In aroma coffee with its sourness, sweet chocolate. Dark brown color, transparent over the light. Tiny beige head. In taste it’s smooth and silky, but also quite watery. Mouthfeel is too weak, should has a bit more body. In taste mostly chocolate. It’s rather sweet with tiny bitterness in the back end in the aftertaste.

Pours black with a medium sized tan head with just a bit of chalkiness. Aroma is medicinal, light roasted malt and wood. Flavor is light toast, faint medicine, and light toffee. light palate, and cool, with a lingering bite.

I really enjoyed this black sweet porter from Great Leap. Malty, almost fruity and tasty.

A quality sweet porter on tap at Great Leap reminded me of a foreign stout. Sweet, dark.
