Beer added by: Mitchster on 06-05-2002

This 18th Century-style Smoked Porter has subtle accent of peat-like Bamberg smoked malt, which is apparent in both the aroma and flavor. It is brewed with seven varieties of premium European malted barley, resulting in note of bittersweet chocolate and coffee that are counter-balanced by a long-sustaining finish of Goldings hops.

12 oz bottle. Pours black with small, fluffy beige head and a lot of bubbles. Aroma is of toasted malt, dark fruit and coffee and cream. Body is full and tangy. Taste is of toasted malt, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, brown sugar, dark fruit and earthy hops. Finish is long and bitter. Very nice porter.

London Porter

Bottled 11/06/13. Poured 2/16/14. $2.29 single.

Appearance: Pours a clear ruby/black/brown color. Not too thick looking. Thin couple bubbles worth of head. No lacing. Quite true to the style in terms of color. (4/5)

Smell: A LOT of roast/smoke/ash. Almost a wood aromatic as well from all of that. Coffee and chocolate are there but not heavily. Smells good, but almost a bit overbearing with the smoke/ash. (3.75/5)

Taste/feel: About a medium mouthfeel with a mellow, light carbonation. Very pleasant, accurate feel here. The taste is a fairly heavy amount of smoke/ash with a wheelbarrow of roasty qualities. Bittersweet chocolate at the end. Not much depth of flavor, but what is there is flavorful. I could see the smokiness of this brew turning off many, but it's balanced nicely with some sweetness. Very easy drinking at 7%. A really quite nice beer from Arcadia. (4/5, 4.25/5)

One of the better beers I've had from Arcadia. Not my favorite porter in terms of flavor, but this one is a good example of a porter over a stout, I think. I'd definitely have it again, as it can be difficult to find a tasty porter on the shelf.

4/5
