Pughtown Porter
Sly Fox Brewing Company
Style: American Porter
ABV: 5.60 %

LOOK: Dark brown brew with a mocha cream foam that leaves plenty of lace and lasts a good while. Looks like a solid porter.

SMELL: Aroma of roast, nuts, chocolate, coffee and sugary malt.

TASTE: In the taste, roasted malt upfront with a faint smokey note that gives way to milk chocolates. There is a small complimentary bitterness, but this is a mostly roasty, chocolatey affair with a mild presence of coffee.

FEEL: Medium bodied, well carbonated, good thick feel and goes down smoothly and easily.

OVERALL: A tasty porter here from Sly Fox brewing based out of Pottstown, PA. Certainly a great beer to have more than one of in a sitting.

tap at special tasting

Pours dark brown with an eggshell head.

Smells a bit smokey with some chocolate and dry hop character.

Tastes mildly toasty with some dark fruit malt sweetness and some mild hop bitterness.

Medium body with light carbonation.

Pretty delicious, an enjoyable porter, would definitely have this again.

This beer was clear and dark brown with chestnut highlights. It was poured with a short cap of light tan head that produced some decent lacing and lasted for quite a while. The aroma was malty - caramel with (nearly) milk chocolate and slightly burnt. Moderate bitterness with plenty of caramel and bittersweet chocolate. Some nuttiness with a bit of burnt character. Hops aren't prominent, but do provide some depth. Dryness was a bit grainy, medium/full bodied, and the carbonation was on the creamy side. Great stuff. The English-style maltiness really pays off. I also liked the burnt character from black malt rather than roasted barley you get in some porters. I could drink this one all night.

I enjoy a good porter, and this one definitely fits the bill. I like my porters to have a vanilla characteristic. This has it. Noticeable ruby in the color should have given this trait away.

Roastiness from the chocolate malt is present though. Nice mixture. That prevents this beer from being cloyingly sweet.

I'd be very interested to try a cask version of this beer.
