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.

Picked up at a downtown market in Nashville...nothing marked on the carrier package except that this was a Brewmaster's Reserve. Bottled on 6.21.11.

Pours a dark, dark brown, almost black color with reddish hues around the edges. Carbonation makes this look like a glass of Coke.

Caramel and chocolate up front in the nose. Some vanilla, candy cream, cinnamon, brown sugar, and coffee aroma also.

Flavor is on the dryer side. Heavy roasted malt characteristic. I assume this is brewed with rye (hence the name), and there is some rye flavor here, too. Bitter chocolate and coffee come in around the middle, followed by a dark fruited flavor, vanilla, and caramel.

Overall, this porter is interesting, carrying some unique flavors for the style. It is drinkable, and works well across the palate. A bit too spritzy on the tongue, taking away from what could be a very creamy mouthfeel. But, on the whole, this porter works well.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

12 oz bottle served at about 55F in a goblet. Purchased and consumed a few months past BB date, but bought and stored refrigerated.

Flavor: Chocolate and sweet malts. Slighty sweet balance for style
Finish is a mess of flavors, probably due in part to the rye.

Feel: medium-full body with excellent, near-medium carbonation.

O: worth trying.

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.
