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!

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.

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.

A very dark brown color with a decent tan head and a very nice web of lace. The aroma is giving off some subtle grass with chocolate and charcoal subtleties. Not very strong but pleasant. The flavor offers caramel and pecan with grain mixed with a stout-like blend of charcoal and chocolate ideas. It's medium bodied with a dry, chalky feel, somewhat aqueous in an inviting sort of way. Very drinkable and decent.

I've had this beer from a growler and draft. Both are excellent, especially on draft. To me this porter is nearly flawless, it's the way I imagine a porter was intended to taste when the style was created. Nice and roasty toasty with a nice full body and a chewy mouthfeel. It's definitely a porter though, not too thick and syrupy like some that cross the line into stout territory. Great job by back east, all the beers I've had from them are great representations of their particular styles.
