Notes/Commercial Description:
The Pensacola Lighthouse is an icon for our hometown, and so is our Porter. For centuries, a light high above a tower has served as a beacon to sailors at sea. Even though we don’t keep the Lighthouse Porter on our roof, you’d be surprised at how many sailors seem to think it’s a sign!

The Gulf’s shallow waters can be treacherous. Without the Pensacola Lighthouse, who knows how many ships would have succumbed to a dark and foggy night? Find your way out of the dreary rat race and relax with the Lighthouse Porter

The Lighthouse Porter is flavorful, without being heavy. An enjoyable sipping beer, you’ll definitely find your way to shore with our Lighthouse Porter.

Appearance: Pours a dark coffee color with no real head (because of the pour) and a ring of foam around the top edge of the beer.

Smell: Sweet chocolate and coffee- rather enticing.

Taste: begins with a slight hop spice and finishing with sweet chocolate and bitter coffee- everything a porter should be.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with balanced carbonation and a sticky finish.

Overall: An excellent porter- this has everything a great porter should blended masterfully.

Pours a dark brown/almost black with reddish tints when held to the light. Nice creamy head, slow fade and nice lacing.

The aroma is a good balance of dark chocolate, some rosted coffee, and sweet toffee.

The flavor follows the nose with good coffee notes, chocolate and toffee. Nice coffee bitter finish. Great balance.

A little thin, but pretty close to what a porter should be.

Nice, easy drinking porter.

A: very dark brown body with a half finger head.

S: full nose with mostly smokey aromas with mild chocolate and burnt toast notes.

T: very smokey with a sweetness provided by the toffee and chocolate notes.

M: fuller bodied than I expected, moderate carbonation. Moist finish.

Overall: I like when porters have this mouthfeel and don't seem watered down. The best of the 4 beers I tried from this brewery.

Arrives very dark brown with a small light tan head. Scattered lace remains after the head drops to a ring.
Smell is malt, baking chocolate, wet cardboard and a hint of hops.
Taste is dark/baking chocolate, malt, cardboard and a smoke note. Pretty good balance.
Medium-full body, lightish effervescence, nice smoky/chocolate aftertaste. Drying but only faintly warming. A solid brew drunk in Pensacola.
