According to Dann Paquette (the Brewer), this beer is a Porter, not an American Black Ale. It was brewed in London in 1855, so it is an English Porter.

The beer comes in a Coca Cola dark brown with a bit of reddish brown coming through in the light.

The aroma has a nutty toasty/roasty porter quality. Not huge of the aroma, but a familiar porter aroma.

The flavor follows with that gently roasted malt character, a bit of bready and caramel sweetness. However, the beer is quite vibrant hoppiness. It’s woody, herbal, and decently bitter. However, it’s not too overpowering. The beer is extremely drinkable with this good balancing of sweetness and bitterness.

A wonderful take on the style with its bitterness.
