COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A black ale that puts the flavor of the malt front and center. It has a mild hop character that balances strong notes of cocoa and hints of coffee. A full-bodied treat that pairs well with chocolate as well as fresh shellfish.

Very delicious porter. some nice coffee notes, roasted malts, and cocoa. A little heavy for the summer, but definitely one to have when it gets cooler. On tap at the brewery during a tasting session

On tap at Dumont Burger in Williamsburg. I’m not big into the porters and stouts, but this may have converted me. Very smooth with a strong chocolate presence and some mild coffee. It was a very satisfying beer in all ways, very filling.

gorgeous looking beer with creamy brownish head and deep very dark reddish brown color. it’s probably a cliche to describe a porter as chocolately, but this one has a delicious roasty-ness that reminds me of a great bitter chocolate. weak aroma but otherwise a very very enjoyable beer.

Growler from the brewery. I had this Porter at the brewery’s opening party, so I knew I had to buy the growler to share with friends. The impressive malt character to it that reminded me of an English Porter which was highlighted by chocolate and coffee bitterness. It was remarkably easy to drink in the hot weather of an August afternoon in Greenport, NY. It seemed to mild in the abv, but it tasted great for a new entry to LI.

64oz growler sampled at the DC Local tasting. Pours a watery opaque black with a clumpy, beige head. Nice toasty, bready aroma, nuts, dark malts. Flavor is sweet, brown sugar, malts, toasted bread, light chocolate, lightly nutty, light coffee. Finish is medium bodied, sweet, with a little coffee bitterness. A really solid, session porter.

Bottle, labeled "sample,not for sale". Pours a nice dark brown. Tan head. Roasty aroma with lots of chocolate, light coffee and a hint of molasses. Toasty aroma, lightly sweet, chocolate and espresso flavors. Pretty good porter!

From a cast at the Pony Bar. A rich coffeehouse porter with an aroma that grows floral as it warms. Malt, herbs, spice, and an odd finish. Very good - I look forward to trying more from Greenport Harbor.

World Cup beer tasting at Lazy Boy Saloon Beer #10. Taste is smokey and malty. very easy drinking and seems almost light compared to the stout its sitting next to on my tasting sheet. Really enjoyable porter i really like it.

On tap at the Cask Bar & Kitchen, Manhattan - 01/03/12. Poured a dark brown with a tan coloured head. On the nose - roasted malts, cocoa, coffee and a puff of smoke. Taste as nose - add a little dark fruit, quite complex for a 4.7% ABV porter. Medium bodied and a smooth finish. Good well rounded and tasty porter for sub 5%!

Draught. Black with a thin head. Roast with chocolate and coffee notes. Very full bodied. Thick and creamy. Big roasted malt notes but mellow and smooth.
