With the uncertainty of fresh beer in Buffalo I'm forced to turn to Rochester, well, Honoye Falls. Despite being a hot summer weekend I had a taste for a rich toasty porter, and I was also interested in trying some CB's bottled - which I mostly enjoy from the tap in most local bars. This is a great value, even though a six pack is still close to $9, and the beer is nice and fresh from making such a short trip from the brewery. The beer pours smooth from the bottle and comes to an off white frothy head. The aroma is chocolate malt and a hint of hops. The mouth feel is silky and perfectly carbonated, and yes creamy. The flavor is bitter chocolate balanced with a malty sweetness, smokey, maybe a little coffee flavor but not as bitter as most porters. I was really surprised by this beer and cannot wait to visit the new brewery and try another six pack.

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

Poured into shaker pint

A: Almost black with hints of mahogany color when held to light. Creamy, fine and tan, 2 finger head that lasts.

S: Coffee-caramel notes with hints of toast and raisins.

T: Get through the super creamy head and taste mild coffee and cream flavors which don’t really last. Hints of caramel malt and earthy tones.

M: Mildly dense in the mouth with very little carbonation.

O: An easy drinking porter that is quite sessionable; I could easily knock back a few of these and be content. It’s not the boldest beer out there, then again they do label it a “cream porter”.

Holy hell do I like this beer. I had it at the America Hotel in Lima, NY. They have it on tap. The look of it in the glass is just great. Nice dark, thick head that stays with you for a good long while. The color is rich and dark and very pleasing to the eye. It smells amazing. Nice roasty,chocolate, sweet smell to it. I liked the first one so much I had two more. lol. Mouth feel is heavy, but it's a porter, I'd be confused if it wasn't heavy. It's nice and smooth going down. Overall I think this is a very drinkable beer, and highly recommend it. I also recommend hitting the American and having a few pints and some of their delicious food.
