COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Working Man’s Porter an ale of true merit, brewed in the tradition of England’s Industrial Revolution, an age of rough-handed factory workers, a time before the weekend existed. Hearty and truly robust, this Porter’s body is built with complex English brown and black malts, and refined by Brambling Cross hops, which lend notes of herbs and black currants. It pairs well with oysters, shepherd’s pie, and sitting down after a long day. ABV: 5.2% IBU’s 30

Picked up a bomber on a recent trip to Plymouth NH. A pretty basic style to brew. Tasty and robust. Body on the thin side, which would make this good with food.

A dark, tasty beer with a lot of flavor. Carries a strong aroma of chocolate with it. Get a few cans of this beer and relax for a while.

12 oz can bought in NH. Clear dark brown pour with a large beige head and excellent retention. Good lacing. Dark roasted malt and nutty flavor. Smooth. Medium mouthfeel.

Draft at Lab and Lager. Pours black with a khaki head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Robust roasted malt and chocolate notes on the nose. Lots of chocolate on the tongue. Solid bitterness on the finish. Nice!

Roast and some nut. Pours black with good head and lacing. Caramel. Good mix and easy to session like Wire episodes. Can thanks to johnnnnie.

No frills porter leaning to the more bitter side of the scale. Chocolate and roast with only the faintest hint of sweetness. Yum.

MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Poured from 12 oz. can. Opaque, dark cola brown with a 2-finger tan head and very good lacing. Aroma of roasted nuts, roasted malt, caramel and roasted nuts. Taste of bitter toasted walnuts, caramel, sweet crude chocolate and roasted malt. The bitter nuts are more than amply offset by the sweet malt flavors. Medium/full body and medium carbonation with nice mouthfeel. The can I drank yesterday had an off taste. Maybe it was my palate, because this can (from the same 6-pack) seems fine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thepatrickman (1502) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2016
Draft at Block Six, Portsmouth, NH. This came across like homebrew to me -- it was thin, slightly acidic from the dark malts, not terribly roasty, and a bit all over the place. It was perfectly fine as a quaffer, but sub-par.

Smells a bit off. Foam bomb. Shared with my bros. Watery Thx johnnnniee. Bacon. Vegetable. Grainy.

tekstr1der (501) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Near-black pour with frothy tan top. Smells of chocolate and rich malt. Both come through in flavor with some spice and roast. This finishes fairly clean, but a little dry. Slightly more carbonation than I’d like. Pretty decent overall.
