COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our creamy porter is ideal for the dark beer connoisseur. It has a lightly roasted flavor with hints of chocolate and peat. A smooth finish and superb balance make it enjoyable going down. The secret to this beer is the extra aging. Even those just getting started with darker beers enjoy this one

cladinshadows (48) - USA - DEC 25, 2012
22 oz bottle poured into a shaker style pint glass. Aroma is caramel and roasted malt, slight raisin, and faint smoke. Maybe a little nutty. Pours with a few soda-like bubbles and retains no foam or lacing. Taste is malty caramel with a dry roasted malt finish and hints of raisins and smoke. Decently long finish for a beer of moderately low strength. Palate is well balanced - between the medium low carbonation and roasty dryness and the caramel/raisin sweetness. The smoke is still present but not in sufficient quantity to add or detract from this beer. Overall very tasty for a porter of this strength but not something I would go out of my way to try again.
