Poured into an English pint glass, the appearance was a dark brown pour yielding to a black color. Finger’s worth of eggshell white foaminess sits atop of the beer before gently dieing off into the beer. Light lace. jtclockwork (17467) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2017
The aroma opens up with sweet crushed peanuts, roasted nuttiness, soft sweet chocolate malt and then a touch of balancing coffee.
The flavor balances very nicely between the roast and sweet of the peanuts and nuts to the chocolate malts. Coffee seems to sit just a touch further back. Eloquent semi-sweet to roasty aftertaste rolling into the finish very nicely.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body, perhaps closer to light. Good carbonation. ABV felt appropriate. I have to admit, this one does seem a bit rugged on the feel, perhaps that is due to that there was real peanuts actually crushed into this beer.
Overall, I think this was a very nicely done creative porter by Manayunk. If I lived in their distro, I wouldn’t mind more of this even if the feel is a bit more rugged than expected.
Can - pours brown white head - nose/taste of peanut shell, light burnt grain and light caramel - light bodied
