Pint from a growler filled at "b2 Taphouse" in Salem. I think $13. Beer is a darker brown colour with a large thick and frothy tan head..that sticks around! Nice aromas of nuts,Belgian style yeasts,cherries and toasted malt. Again nice fruity yeasty Belgian accents in the taste..touch of nuts and some sweet black cherry..semi bitter coffee malts in the end Good mouth feel substantial but not thick and cloying. Overall likable beer here a good hybrid.

on-tap @ Belmont Station.
from notes.

Deep brown, with amber edges when held to light. Foamy, dense light brown head.

Roasty, nutty, light cocoa. Delicate, but still flavorful.

Medium body, foamy, unobtrusive carbonation.

A very well done porter. Lower end ABV with still a lot of flavor. Something I could easily enjoy a couple pints of.

Belgian Porter with Cascade Hops.

A - Dark brown almost black with a light tan off-white head that slowly moves to the edges.

S - Not much to pick up. A touch of Belgian yeast and slight hops.

T - Smooth chocolate and subtle coffee and a touch of hop bitterness.

D - Medium body with good carbonation.

O - Chocolate and a touch of Belgian and hops.
