64 oz. growler filled on 10/25/12.

Dark root beer brown body. Not too viscous, but thick enough. Small, pinkie finger of dense, gauzy, light sandy head. Some lacing. Nose full of dark chocolate, roasted barley, and French roast coffee. Very nice. Accents of milk chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, and licorice.

Dark, bitter roasted malt and coffee up front. Espresso like in its bitterness and intensity. Very nice. Roasted bitterness sticks around as dark chocolate, peat, and tobacco fill in. Traces of vanilla and molasses. Dry finish, with long lingering roasted coffee and malt. Medium plus body with an almost sticky feel. Nice carbonation levels. Very well done!

Deep chestnut with a light brown thick head that recedes slowly. Low aroma of roasted malt and cocoa. Rich Flavors of roasted malt, cocoa and molasses, some espresso and smoke. Rich and full mouthfeel, a bit tannic. Overall, this is s really good beer. Another CT beer to be proud of.

Had at Haywire Burger Bar in Westbrook, CT back in January 2015. From notes. Really nice porter here on tap. Never have seen it outside of the brewery and it is not canned or bottled. Would love to try again in the winter months. Seems like a nice, lighter dark beer if you don't want their Imperial Stout Trooper.

Surprise (at least to me) from New England Brewing. Poured into a tulip glass.

A) Nice deep dark black, small tan head which quickly dissipates.

S) The nose gives off some coffee and chocolate also sense a slight bitterness.

T) Charred coffee, cocoa with some licorice undertones. This finishes with a nice hoppy bitternes (40 IBU's). I like this combination.

M) Smooth and thin which I think is representative of the style.

O) Nice to have found this tasty treat. Hopefully it goes into the rotation.
