COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Offers a pleasingly complex taste that results from generous additions of Scottish peat smoked malt in the mash and American hops in the kettle. This robust porter is perfect for cold New England winter nights.

Can pour into shaker pint glass from Manchester Wine and Liquors. Aroma is mild roasted malts with light ash, caramel, dark fruit. Appearance is dark brown/mahogany--almost black--with 1/2 finger-width beige head with poor retention and trace lacing. Taste is slightly stronger than aroma but similar--mostly roasted malt and lightly ashy. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thick texture, average carbonation and mildly sweet and lasting ash finish. Overall, a promising premise that is fairly weak in aroma and taste.

Tallboy can sent to me by WillRunForBeer - thanks Brian! Pours a nice dark brown with a tan head. Roasted malt nose, much more on the porter side than on the smoky side. Thin but full of flavor. Roasted malt, a hint of bitter chocolate and a gentle smoke in the finish. Solid.
