There is a deep, dark spot in everyone’s heart and ours is personified in our porter. A combination of Maris Otter, a blend of specialty malts, and US Golding hops creates this complex brew. Aromas of coffee beans and baker’s chocolate flow seamlessly into the flavor. Served on nitro for that wonderfully creamy texture.

Draft in a nonic glass at the brewery - also on nitro. Nose is roasted malts, caramel and slightly grassy for a lack of a better term. Sips adds strong coffee notes. A nice light porter with lots of flavor. A fitting light to medium body with all of the nitro qualities. This one is advertised as having just 5% ABV. I imagine a dark night whilst on a boat with a light fog. No danger around but... It’s a good porter folks.

Taster on tap at the Lager House, on nitro. Very dark red / brown color... Appears black from a distance. Good thicker light brown / tan head. Leaves thick lace. Good cocoa, toast malt, chocolate in the nose; hint of mocha. Super-smooth, lightly soft, lighter carbonation. Lighter body. Lightly slick finish. A light dryness, too. Good long mildly roasty aftertaste, and bitter dark chocolate. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Light metallic edge to the flavor if when bigger swigs are taken. Very tasty, impressive, satisfying porter. Good, long, potent aftertaste for the low abv.

Draft. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate roasted dark malt and coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is the very good brew.

phaleslu (9429) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2014
Draft at The Lager House. Pours a brownish amber with a creamy beige head that leaves a thin layer of lace all the way down the glass. Aroma of nuts, toast, chocolate, coffee, and tobacco. Flavor is the same but also hints at an earthy hop character the nose doesn’t show. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Good porter. Is it the same as Arnold’s? I don’t know and neither do the bartenders. Working on that mystery.
