Nearly opaque brown color. Creamy, roasted aromas and flavors of chocolate nuts, muffin and custard and latte with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, compelling, medium-long finish with accents of dried fruits, mocha creme brulee, and licorice and delicate spice finish. A tasty and warming barrel aged 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.
