Definitely one of the better porters I’ve had in a long time. I sampled this on draft at the City Tavern in Philly. The beer poured a black color with a light tan head. There was plenty of beautiful lacing happening inside the glass. The nose featured some caramel, vanilla, chocolate, roasted barley and a slight hint of sweet alcohol. The body was perfectly drinkable and smooth, with flavors of chocolate, cream, vanilla, caramel, fruit, very light hops, toasted bread and a hint of booze.

Dark with some red, some head. Nose is toasty, molasses, a bit of fruit. Taste is roasty, sweet malt, some fruit and coffee on the finish. Very little carbonation. It's ok.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, dried fruits, molasses, caramel, and sweet malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice porter that is easy drinking, smooth, and sessionable for the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours black, red hues when held to strong light. One finger off white silky head. Moderate lacing but nice retention. Aroma of roasted malts and dark chocolate. Taste is nicely balanced, sweet malts with an even bitterness. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes long and smoky. Tasting notes of burnt sugars, dark roasted coffee and malts, vanilla, dark chocolate and toffee. A very nice and complex porter!

Bottle. Pours dark brown. Med sized tan head. Aroma of roast and molasses. Flavor is dark toast. Good palate. Rich and creamy. My wife picked this up from the gift shop at Mt. Vernon while we were on a trip. Based on that I didn’t have high expectation, however I was wrong. This was a very nicely done porter that I really enjoyed. Only disappointment is that I only had the one. Certainly something I would try again.
