COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Working Manís Porter an ale of true merit, brewed in the tradition of Englandís Industrial Revolution, an age of rough-handed factory workers, a time before the weekend existed. Hearty and truly robust, this Porterís body is built with complex English brown and black malts, and refined by Brambling Cross hops, which lend notes of herbs and black currants. It pairs well with oysters, shepherdís pie, and sitting down after a long day. ABV: 5.2% IBUís 30

mansquito (3915) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Brattleboro Food Coop, Brattleboro Vermont bomber: Pours near black with a tan head. Aroma is nice chocolate, robust malts, and hints of coffee. Taste is a bit bitter, but has a nice sweet chocolate undertone, along with enough roast to pack some punch. Very easy to drink, but not at all boring. I liked it.

MWMBeerguy (174) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Poured this a bit cold and so it had a thin tan head. Very black. Let it warm up. Nice chicolaty aroma with a little marshmallow. Tasted nice. Not velvety smooth but rather a hint of dark chocolate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MaBeer1972 (1399) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Picked up a bomber on a recent trip to Plymouth NH. A pretty basic style to brew. Tasty and robust. Body on the thin side, which would make this good with food.

AirForceHops (4067) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Draft @ New England Tap house Grill. 2/8/2012. Standard pint glass shows dark brown with little head retention. Nose is a solid amount of roasted malt. Chocolate, roasted grain, hints of vanilla and Earth. Dark chocolate flavor with some coffee, English malts and a light herbal note near the finish. The body is normal for the style and it has a slightly creamy texture. This is best standard release from this brewery. Itís well worth a try if you like porters.
