Unremarkable brown ale. Not really a modern porter, somewhat lighter in body and in mouth feel, but with a little more complexity. A decent sweet, malty, reddish brown ale with a nice hoppy finish. Something slightly metallic in the finish, but a decent beer and quite enjoyable at Philadelphia’s City Tavern.

Poured a very deep brown into an English pint with a tan head and lace. Aroma was roasted malts and a slight coffee and toffee note. Taste is same but the roast of the malts come out strong. Slight alcohol note. Warming in the finish. A little on the sweet side on the draw and a little dry in the finish. The roast is the lingering note big time. A different but pleasant take on a porter. Enjoyed the history ride.

Drank from the bottle. Aroma consists of roasted malts, caramel, and coffee. Notes of chocolate and dark fruit come through in the taste. The beer is not too sweet nor too bitter. Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and an oily mouth feel. Nice beer.
