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

Got in a BIF from beerloserLI. 12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear very dark brown color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, dark bread, light coffee, herbal, light dark fruit, and yeast/roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, earthy hops, and light fruity/earthy yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of big chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, dark bread, light coffee, herbal, light dark fruit, and yeast/roasted earthiness. Light herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, dark bread, light coffee, herbal, light dark fruit, and yeast/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt, earthy hops, and light fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy, and slightly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is an awesome English porter style. All around great robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, earthy hops, and light fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

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.

nimbleprop (6066) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 4, 2010
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.

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.

Bottle. Moderate to heavy toasted and strong coffee, moderate herbs and resin for the hops, earth for the yeast, with a hint of vanilla in the background. Head is average size, light tan, with fair lacing and is fully lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, creamy with a soft carbonation. A perfectly balanced and rich Porter from a Long Island brewery.
