Nice porter that is lightly sweetened, flavored, and smoothed by molasses and vanilla.

Cask Night at Lititz's GEN Sutter Inn (F, 27 Feb 2009) marked its cask release with one other slated for PHL Beer Week. LNCBC's Director of Sales and Marketing, John Frantz; Jin Weber (BeerIsland), my ride home that evening; yours truly; and another fellow who I recognized upon sight but do not personally know were the only four who were at both "release parties". Cheers to all of us!

This one was dispensed via gravity pour and arrived with two fingers of soapy, foamy, deep-tan head with mild retention. The color was a deep, dark, brown with little to no light penetration. Nose had an interesting mix of slight charcoal and dark chocolate. Mouthfeel was slightly full, approaching creamy. I got an anise-like flavor on the tongue. The finish was dry, especially so for a porter, but better that than the God-awful sweetness of its namesake.

A good beer with a nice appearance, deep ruby brown in the light with a tall two finger beige head which is dense and long lasting.
Aromas of roasted malts char and vanilla.
Taste is like the nose malty rich with roast and char. Vanilla weaves its sweet creaminess throught out the taste.
I like this.

Served on-tap at Frisco Grille in Columbia, MD into a shaker pint glass at the appropriate temperature (01/11/10).

A: Pours a deep and dark mahogany brown with some slight ruby hues capped off with one finger on an off-white heard that left some ringed lace.

S: Aroma is a little weak, but contains very nice tones of roasted malt, sweet malt, coffee, and some chocolate as well as being peppered with dark fruit.

T: Quite balanced with a very fresh flavor profile consisting of molasses, raisins, dark chocolate, and roasted malt. Layer of dark fruit are found as well.

M: Medium-bodied with smooth and somewhat creamy carbonation.

D: There is not a hint of the 6% abv. and with it balanced a fresh flavor, this a a rather sessionable American Porter.

Overall this was a very solid American Porter, that contains nothing really unique in its flavor, but it is quite solid and very balanced. Recommended.
