3.55/5 rDev -11.5%
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.

an opaque brown-orange pour with very little amount of head.
smells of sweet malt, citrus, caramel.
a very light tasting porter. nice and sweet, has a bit of tang to it which makes you thirsty for more.
very low carbonation, light body +
i think i would've enjoyed this a lot more if it had a bit more carbonation. had it on tap as well and felt the same way. it is however, quite tasty though, so i won't stay away from it!

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.

4oz taster size pour out of one of the staff members growlers (as the keg was kicked). Poured this into my CMBC pint glass.
A: This poured out a deep chestnut color. It was bordering on brown. Not as dark as other porters of the same variety. Off white almost tan head. Lacing bits. Not a ton of carbonation, but it was coming out of a almost empty growler so who knows.
S: I definitely got some of those sweet honey, roasted notes. Rich grain bill. Some milk chocolate. Maybe a touch of coffee buried under it all as well.
T: Taste follows the nose. Sweet malts. Low bitterness. Some light roast. Maybe some light hints of coffee. Chocolate.
M: Light to medium. Very thin for the style, but easy drinking.

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.
