Nearly opaque dark brown color. Earthy, vegetal aromas and flavors of succotash, mustard greens, and yeasty rye bread with a supple, racy, medium body and a peppery, short-to-medium finish with elements of arugula, cocoa powder, radish, and lemon zest finish. A pleasant, easy drinking dry porter.

Porters are red-brown to black in color and range from 4.5-6.5% in alcohol. They are medium to full-bodied and characterized by a flavor profile that varies from subtle dark malts to fully-roasted, smoky flavors. Although porter was the drink of the masses in 1700s London, it is no longer a significant factor in the British market today. However, porters are increasingly popular in today’s US market and often display the influence of hops in richer craft-brewed examples. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Fuller’s London Porter, Samuel Smiths Taddy Porter, Meantime London Porter and Flossmoor Station Pullman Brown Ale.
