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.

Had on tap in a pint glass.

Pours a very dark brown, nearly pitch black, with a thick dark tan head. Good head retention and lacing.

Aroma of dark roast coffee and roasted malt along with some dark fruit such as plums and raisins. Pretty nice but a little on the weak side.

There is a touch of smoke in the flavor along with roasted malt and some coffee. The roast seems to go a little overboad, though, and the mouthfeel is quite chalky and watery. Just isn't put together very well.

Overall, I was really looking forward to this based on the appearance and aroma but the taste and mouthfeel kind of let me down. Just an ok beer.

From Notes.

a: dark brown ale with about 1/2 head from the tap at 41F

s: coffee, smokey malt. some chocolate. no hops detected

t: Nice balance of coffee, burn candy, burnt milk, malt and chocolate, not much smoke, hops balanced it out OK. Was not as good as many other porters i had. Some bitter aftertaste.

m: medium to thin body, decent carb, smooth. easy to drink

o: overall its decent nothing earthshaking. sure does not even compare to Sn porter on a bad day, heck SA porter is better.

on tap for 5 plus I drank a few wrote some notes and I am done.

2.2/5  rDev -39.1%

Pours a dark brown color with an off white bubbly top. The aroma is quite mineral like, somewhat metallic, and has a faint bit of roast and chocolate. In the flavor, roasted malt, charcoal, dried fruit, minerals, and a mild but growing off flavor of tartness. A bit of piney hops and citrus, too acidic, slightly infected, not so great. Light, thin, watery feel with prickly carbonation. Like a roasted gueze, or sour porter, but unintentional. Rough, and a pretty weak porter in many ways.
