Smooth and complex porter with dark fruit aromas and flavors. Smells of dark citrus, roasted malt, slight sweet malt, alcohol, and a hint of wood. Mouthfeel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is also a slight dryness. Overall, great appearance, good aroma, feel, and body. This dark beer is here to stay! A delicious example of what this small but mighty brewery can do.
The American porter is a juiced up version of the English porter - more of everything basically. They range from very sessionable to big barrel-aged beers. Lots of aroma and flavor of smoke, roast, cocoa-like sweetness and with all the fullness of the hops and dark malts. Drier and more bitter than a stout, but less creamy and rich. Moderately strong malt flavor usually features a lightly burnt malt character (and sometimes chocolate and/or coffee flavors) with a bit of grainy, dark malt dryness in the finish. Overall flavor may finish from dry to medium-sweet.
