12oz bottle into tulip.
A - Black as night with a thick tan head.
S - Coffee, roasted malt, slight milk chocolate.
T - Subtle but tasty blend of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and charred wood.
M - Light-medium mouthfeel, smooth, creamy. Lots of carbonation, chalky grainy finish.
O - This is a fairly decent, pleasant porter. The flavor is light but makes the beer very easy to drink.

Of the 25 American porters I have tried this one is my favorite. Easy to drink, affordable and loaded with roasted malt and dark chocolate taste. Although it is brewed locally it is hard to find in Southeastern PA, unfortunately. I am willing to drive an hour to pick up a case in Wilkes-Barre area because I am so fond of it. The other commonly available craft porters are a bit harsh or too weak and too high priced for every day drinking. Stegmaier is perfect for any occasion and goes well with any food.

Jet black with no light around the edge this Porter had all the components of a good stout. The head was thick in the middle and sat above a layer of carbonation.
The aromas were dark, dried fruits like prune date and raisin. A touch of chocolate and small bit of roasted coffee comes neatly tucked away.
The flavor is rich with the dried fruits and raisin seems dominant. Slight touches of prune and date mix with a dark chocolate. I did at times detect some malt, coffee and a smokey char but it was rare.
The feel is slightly thin with a higher level of carbonation than perhaps should be with the style.
Overall, at $1.50 a bottle in my local single shop, I'd rate this as one of the best bargains in craft beer.

Being a major beer snob and drinking some of the Worlds greatest beers it is hard for me to admit but this stuff tastes pretty darn good! A strong coffee taste makes this porter a beer that you can slam down. For the price this stuff is worth the jingle and the lower ABV makes this easy to over do it.
Bottom Line: The Lion roars and Stegmaier's Porter flows from it's mouth!
