Dark brown color. Toasty, attractive aromas and flavors of chocolate toffee and dark toast with a supple, crisp, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length finish conveying accents of arugula, nuts, and hint of peppered citrus peels finish. A very crisp and lively session porter that is very clean and refreshing.

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.
