Oh Porter
Oh Porter,
Such fine service you sell.
I'll tip you a quarter
for work done so well.

"But what of this pail
delivered to you?
So full of dark ale,
I'd like some too!

Weakened by labour
my burden will stay.
A strong drink to savour
sustains me all day.

That smooth easy finish
refreshes me so.
See my mug deminish?
Back to work I go!"

Applaud & propel
make your stress shorter.
Goodbye & farewell,
Oh Porter
Oh Porter

A - Pours cola like in appearance. Nice 1 1/2 finger tan head. Excellent retention and lacing

S - Light aroma. Sweet malts, lots of chocolate and even a slight bourbon on the finish if you use your imagination.

T - Not as sweet as the nose. Has a bitter finish with a hint of smoke. More coffee beans flavor present than chocolate but both are there. Smoke tends to linger on the finish

M - A medium body beer. Fizzy in the mouth and fairly smooth to drink. Just the tiniest hint of burn when the smoke flavor lingers

O - A solid porter. Nice flavor and I particularly enjoyed the smoky finish. Not a sessionable beer, but would be very enjoyable on a cool fall day or with some spicy bbq
