Minutely hazy dark brown color. Delicate, sweet aromas and flavors of cocoa and nut with a velvety, bright, spritzy, off-dry medium body and a tingling, medium-length chocolate covered citrus, radish, and soil finish. A solid, earthy porter for the table.

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.
