A red-brown light seeps through this dark beer. Spores of foam collect as sheeting on the surface.

Sweet English two-row with molasses and light roastiness. Fruity with a browned apple and fig note, but gushing with dark rummy sugars.

Molasses, brown sugar, roast grain, pomme, porter malt bitterness, and light toffee. Hints of black cherry. Not much in the line of hops. Very un-American.

Drinks like a decent porter, except that it's a bit on the light side. Carbonation has good dimension.

A good porter of the English style.

During a recent visit to LBC harrisburg, I couldnt resist ordering this. I am surprised I dont already have a review for this because I vividly recall this beers release in 2009 and my drive with friends to the Lancaster location to try it.

Served in a pint, the brew appears a dark amber to mahogany color. It is quite clear and lighter in color than expected for a porter. A finger of yellowish stained tan cap sits atop. Pretty solid retention that leaves a wall of lacing effect on the glass.

The aroma consists of caramel to toasty toffee sweetness. Some mineral aspect with mild fruit and citrus hops are an afterthought. At times, the darker faint sweetness suggests molasses but never quite gets there.

The taste is quite mineral filled with fruity to floral notes from a mild hop inclusion. Mild toasty grain somewhat like toffee is evident. The aftertaste is very weak with the faintest hint if molasses and chocolate grain. This brew is somewhat nutty actually more than anything.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is crisp almost like a baltic porter but lacking a bit across the board. I didnt care for the mineral quality at all that seemed to dominate the brew. Overall a good idea but it just didnt pan out the way it could if the recipe was revisited.
