COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark and medium-to-full-bodied, this dark ale has deep ruby highlights. Originating in England, porter began as a "blend" of beers and was said to have been favored by porters and other physical laborers. A full roasted and complex aroma results from our use of three different roasted malts and flaked rye in the mash.

Creamy, with 70% nitro. Dark, a bit of roast aroma. But not much left in the taste, a tad of roasted walnut maybe. No coffee nor chocolate. Thinner than I would like. Was not as drinkable

Another treat that went well with my steak. Nice beige head sat atop the almost jet black beer. Nuts, coffee, and hops came together well with a creamy mouthfeel.

A delightful seasonal. Quite dark (black), lots of coffee, decent head, great finish.

An outstanding offering from the folks at H&H. The main regret is that this is a stated seasonal and therefore not available year-round. Rich roasted coffee aroma. Dark brown, almost black body; tan, medium head with decent retention. As my sample was one of 4 served on H&Hs outdoor patio in Wausau, WI on a hot, humid summer day, by the time I got to the porter, it had warmed considerably. It still was quite flavorful. I imagine even more enjoyable at slightly cooler than room temp.
