On tap in a pint glass. Bonus points for the restaurant actually being in Cape May.
A--Deep, rich brown. Thick head that left considerable lacing.
S--Rich, roasted malts. Some chocolate sweetness that may be the honey.
T--No bitter/burnt tastes. The honey is apparent. Sweet & malty is the best description. Some cocoa & coffee are noticable in the background.
M--Creamy & rich. Full bodied with adequate, not excessive carbonation. Really feels great.
O--Excellent beer. Not what I think of when I think porter, but excellent nonetheless.

A: Pours a dark brown to black with a tan head. Head retention is minimal with no lacing. Yet still looks inviting.
S: Dark slightly roasted malts with some chocolate.
T: Slight bitterness for a second but quickly followed with the honey backbone. Slight roasted flavor very late.
M: Good carbonation and flavor but heading for #2.
O: Great brew.

Drank on-tap at Dog Tooth Bar & Grill, Wildwood, NJ
Served in a pint glass
Dark brown appearance. The liquid was topped by a inch tall head of tight, tan colored foam. Decent retention but no lacing.
The nose was solid. Rich and smooth with strong caramel malt notes. Lots of semisweet chocolate. Good dose of freshly brewed coffee. Touch of roastiness.
The flavor profile was much more dry and roasty than the nose. Deep, dark, roasted malts dominated. Some French roast coffee in the center. Nutty. Charred malts came through strong in the finish. Slightly acrid.
The mouthfeel was fairly standard. Medium bodied with an average amount of carbonation.
Cape May Honey Porter is a pretty average beer that had absolutely no honey presence. While the aroma was interesting, the flavor profile could have been sweeter and smoother.

Growler poured into a pint
Looks a midnight black in the glass with some chestnut brown edges. The head rises less than a finger, even after a vigorous pour.
The aroma is of some dark roasted malt, coffee, nuts, and sweet honey. Pretty inviting aroma. Good standard porter notes with honey malt to add a unique wrinkle.
On the palate, dark roast and lightly toasted nuts up front with coffee notes through the middle. Honey malt pokes through the bitter roast finish, but never truly overcomes all the roast. Very nice.
On the lighter side of medium. The carbonation tries real hard to make this smooth, and it nearly does its job but the body falls a little thin. Really my only complaint.
This is a tasty little porter with some nice sweetness from the honey malt. Unique addition that works real well. Good job, guys.

I tried this on tap the other night at Lucky Bones in Cape May.
Great tasting beer. I'm not huge fan of porters but this was delicious. I really liked the body it had. Perhaps from the honey?
It's a solid beer, way better than some of the big commerical beers I've had.
Their brewery is really cool if you make it over there.
