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.

Poured from the can into my Delirium tulip.

Appeared a dark brown color with an off white head. Impossible to see through but very bubbly in appearance.

Smelled of roasted malts and a touch of vanilla cream.

Taste was subtle yet tasty. Nice dark chocolate notes.

Not overly sweet - pretty subtle flavors. Definitely a very drinkable and tasty porter. Was surprised by how much I enjoyed this one.

A: Thick opaque black ale w/ 3 fingers of creamy golden brown head. Leaves thick fluffy lacing w/ a thick pillow of head retention. Great looking brew.

S: Dark chocolate and smokey flavors hit you at first. A little bit of anise in there. Smell reminds me of chocolate croissants fresh out of the oven. Roasted bittersweet chocolate with a hint of nuts also.

T: Smooth roasted chocolate croissant flavor with a hint of coffee and roasted macadamia nuts. A bit of tanginess in the middle that finishes slightly bittersweet and chocolatey.

M: Full bodied creamy beer. w/ lots of roasted flavors. No real fizz more creamy.

O: Solid porter that is sweet but not to sweet or overly bittersweet. Nice balance of chocolate and roasted notes.
