Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Ahoyhoyindeed on 10-13-2011

An English porter made with local Cape May honey. Brewed with hallertau hops the beer has restrained roasty characteristics that make it unique from stouts. Originating in England, porter evolved from a blend of beers or gyles known as “Entire.” A precursor to stout, it is said to have been favored by porters and other physical laborers.

Excellent American Porter, Has a sweet malty flavor, chocolate notes without bitterness. Highly recommended. Great for the winter time, plan on putting a keg of this in, in november.

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.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.
