Notes/Commercial Description:
Back East Porter is a full-bodied chestnut brown porter with notes of chocolate and caramel. This hearty beer offers a thick light brown head and is hopped just enough to offset the sweet maltiness and roasty undertone. This bold beer is refreshing enough to be enjoyed year round, but is at its best as a satisfying winter warmer or paired with a grilled steak, pork roast, or a burger.

12oz can. Pours a dark brownish black color with an inch and a half of head. Almost looks like a glass of coke with a ton of carbonation. Minimal lacing. The aroma is roasty, smokey and malty. Earth, chocolate and some spicy hops. The taste is earthy with some chocolate and roasted malts. Smoke and some charred wood. Lots of carbonation. Happy to see a Porter in a can. Back East has made some good brews so far, glad they are here in CT. Overall, worth having again.

Serving type: can

Appearance: high carbonation, 1/3 inch head, opaque, dark brown in color

Smell: cocoa and vanilla

Taste: cocoa, vanilla, and coffee towards the end

Mouthfeel: Sweet with a roasty bitterness, medium body, moderate carbonation

Overall: A solid and tasty American porter that I was glad I had the chance to try. The smell of the beer is great. Certainly a great local porter to look for if in Connecticut.

A really nice porter from BE. Nice Malty flavors without much roast. A subtle nuttiness and nice light mouthfeel. A style that can sometime go too heavy, this one stays in check and suits multi rounds and as they describe can pair well with many pub style meals. My favorite from BE, hands down!

Serving type: on-tap
