Dark brown color. Attractive aromas and flavors of coconut chocolate bar, caramelized tangerine drizzled with balsamic, hazelnut nougat, and cherry brandy and pickling spices with a velvety, bright, finely carbonated, dryish medium-to-full body and a warming, complex, very long finish with notes of chocolate mousse, creme brulee, and delicate spices finish. A superb barrel aged porter with great flavor, drinkability and balance.

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.
