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.

Pours nice and dark. Nice lacy head. No light is penetrating this bad boy. Smell isn't very strong. Dark and rich flavor. Just right on the bitterness. Anymore and it would be too much for me. Porters aren't my favorite. I enjoyed this one though. First beer by Yazoo.


Wife's Review: "Oh its very good. It is kind of fruity isn't it? Delicious."

Fortunately for me, this was my first step outside of the standard domestic beers. As the bottle says, you're hit with a wonderfully rich flavor of chocolate (which was a bit of a shock to me) that is followed by a creamy body. It is ended with a slight bright of rye which continues to put a smile on my face with every sip. I hope to edit this as my palate evolves so that I may do this wonderful find in a sea of selections the justice I am sure it deserves. I can say that I am so impressed that a weekend sabbatical to the brewery in Nashville has been scheduled!
