kramer (5094) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2009
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with a one finger fizzy light brown head that faded to a thin film. The nose is quite grainy with a bit of nuttiness and dark roast coffee. A touch of burnt toast. The flavor is dry and roasty with a bit too much huskiness making it a little rough and grainy. Some syrupy chocolate notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a rough grainy texture and moderate fizzy carbonation. Overall not the smoothest Porter, the huskiness just maintains an annoying presence throughout. Combine that with the nutty notes and you just don’t have a very good Porter.

The 22 oz bottle came from Market of Choice in Ashland, Oregon and has been in my cellar a couple months. It poured a reich dark brow with a nice tan head and decent lacing. Nose of roasted malts with aromas of coffee, chocolate and burnt wood leading to a smoky ambience. Mouthfeel is light but smooth. Flavor is dominated by the roasted malts but these is a touch of hops, and the finish is mild. Overall this is a mild porter but is easy drinking and tasty.
