Beer added by: Mitchster on 09-25-2001

Faithfully recreated by Geary’s, this classic English style has a deep mahogany color and a restrained roasted malt flavor. The result is rich and complex, yet smooth and refreshing. Original gravity - 1045; alcohol by volume - 4.2%; two row English malt (pale, crystal, chocolate and black); Cascade, Willamette and Golding hops.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: With a thin light beige head is a dark brown to black beer.

Aroma: Chocolate malts, dark roasted coffee, faint caramel notes, dark roasted hops.

Taste: Very crisp mouthfeel to start. Dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee, hops are roasted very much on the dark side.

Notes: A good one to pick up during the colder months or a cool night. A very well brewed porter top to bottom. Cheers.

12 oz. bottle poured into a stout glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark mahogany with some ruby around the edges, especially when held to the light. Lacing nonexistent and very little head. Some decent carbonation.

Aroma: Lots of nice standard porter aromas. There's black coffee, dark chocolate, a little touch of vanilla, roasted coffee beans, and dark, roasty malts.

Taste: Taste follows the nose, with coffee leading the way, and that vanilla note more present. Tasty, easy-drinking porter. Some nice hop bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Nice and smooth, as a porter should be.

Overall: A very nice, traditional porter. I miss I saw more of this as I feel it's one of Geary's better efforts. Definitely worth picking up.

A. - Dark brown color with an explosive head. Head lasts a long time with quality lacing on glass in patches. Inviting.

s - Coffee and malt.

t - bitter malt in front with a coffee finish. A bit bitter, but a good to very good porter.

m - thin,but nice wit the high carbonation.

O - would like more body and less bitter for this beer to go into the outstanding range, but it is knocking on the door.

I don't like Geary's very much, but this porter is definitely the best thing out of their winter variety pack. I feel like I needed to rate this beer because i am not much of a porter fan in general (tending to stick to IPAs and Stouts) but this one was nicely smooth and tasted more like vanilla than a typical porter (closer to a Stout it seemed but more bitter). However, rather than a typical porter, which tends to have the bitter and almost dry taste for a darker beer, this one had a very tasty, sweet and almost refreshing taste and mouthfeel
