Style | ABV
English Porter |  5.70% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
A rich, chocolaty English Porter with a clean finish. We use the finest floor-malted Maris Otter malts from England, the same malts used for the best single-malt scotch. A portion of malted rye gives a spicy, slightly dry finish.

Poured this beer into a pint glass. It's a chocolate brown with a very thin head that disappeared quickly. There was a little bit of lacing on the glass.

The beer smelled like a porter should, a little coppery but mostly chocolate and toffee.

A very clean malt taste. Not too sweet. The hop balance was pretty even.

Somewhat light in the mouthfeel for a porter but easy to drink.

Overall, I liked it as a session beer. Was somewhat let down because the Yazoo Sue is an incredibly rich smoked porter, very bold with lots of body and flavor. I was hoping this would be similar but it was toned down. Still, I liked it, there aren't too many porters widely available in the middle of Tennessee, will drink it again.

Pours a murky dark brew, sports some deep walnut highlights when held up to the light. Head is small side not even one finger and not much in the way of lace.

Aroma is nice malty notes, earthy peat notes, chocolate maybe slight coffee hint and touches of spice from the rye maybe.

Taste is nice malty goodness, some nice sweetness hints of chocolate covered peat. Has good down to earth notes with nut hints. Maybe some light hints of dark fruit in the finish with some light spiciness from the rye mingled with earthy herbal hop notes.

Mouthfeel is solid medium carbonation seems light but offers some pep in the finish.

Overall very nice porter, favorable easy drinking and enjoyable. Only knock really is the lack of any good head.
