Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
The darkest beer in our Storm of the Season line up comes out when the nights are longest. We use Dark Chocolate and Crystal malts to make this bold porter style ale. Enough East Kent Golding hops are used to flavor the brew. However, no aroma hops are added which allows the malt profile of this brew to take center stage.

From the 12 fl. oz bottle notched out at March (2014). Sampled on February 7, 2014.

It pours a dark brown color mainly with some reddish notes if held to the light. Modest tan head that fades to a ring.

The aroma has this strange sort of buttery and biscuit character which is not what I would expect from a Porter. I do get some dark malts but they are overpowered by the butter.

Thin to medium body.

The taste is as odd as the aroma suggests it will be. Again with the muted malts and more with the butter or margarine. I drank the whole thing but probably would not get another one.

Thanks to angrybabboon for the bottle.

Appearance: Brown. Ruddy brown. Head is a darker tan and leaves a thin cap on the beer after asserting a large head after the pour. Some sticking to the side of the glass, but not much.

Smell: Cocoa, milk chocolate and some roasted malts. A hint of old coffee and some bready sweetness. Touches of caramel and a mild citrus hop note...very mild. Almost smells like chocolate milk at times. Very sweet without managing to be cloying. Mildly nutty with a lingering back note of grass and cooked malts.

Taste: Roasted malts and a watery chocolate characteristic. Grassy and a little bready. Slightly stale milk chocolate bar. Some roasted notes and a touch of caramel sweetness. Very bready with a hint of citrus to brighten things up a bit. Weak, old coffee. Lots of malts playing through. Nice cocoa component builds on consecutive sips.

Mouthfeel: Moderate body with a moderate carbonation. A touch dry on the back. Relatively smooth, but never reaches in the the realms of creamy or actually smooth.

Overall: Not a bad take on the style and one of the better beers from the Newport Storm stuff. Good flavor, but loses a little over the long haul. Some weird grainy/corn flavors makes things odd.

Consumed 3/1/12

Appearance: Dark brown with some clarity around the edges, minimal tan head that leaves some spotty lacing

Smell: Roasty, with some chocolate and burnt coffee - an unusual undercurrent of dark fruit - some sugar, too - pretty typical for a porter, except for the odd fruit

Taste: Very similar to the aroma - roasted, dry malts - slightly burnt - cocoa (or hot chocolate mix?), some burnt coffee, some vaguely fruity sweetness - slightly astringent - tobacco-like flavor that becomes increasingly apparent as I work my way through this bottle

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nice carbonation, smooth

Overall: A decent porter

I got four bottles of this for free. Given the price tag, I think it's pretty good. Nothing remarkable, and a bit too much tobacco for my taste, but it's not bad. I could drink this again.
