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.

12oz bottled first week of January 2010.

Pours clear brown, red under light, with a one finger fizzy tan head that quickly recedes to a ring and light wispy cap, and eventually totally flat, no lacing.

Aroma is toasted and roasted malts, some burnt, chocolate, nutty, stale coffee, dark heavy bread. Gets worse over time.

Flavor is some sweet dark fruit, caramel, molasses, a little chocolate, malty, but somewhat watery and light bodied, thin.

Low carbonation, mediocre mouthfeel.

Eventually goes completely flat, the first half of the glass was much more enjoyable than the second which I ended up pouring down the drain. Second one of these and both the same way. Even at its best, I see this more as a Brown Ale or even a Scotch Ale, but pretty weak for a Porter, and a below average beer regardless of style.
