BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dock Street Brewery & Restaurant
Pennsylvania, United States
dockstreetbeer.com

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A liquid nod to the only pre-revolutionary tavern still standing in The City of Brotherly Love. “Man Full of Trouble” was one of Colonial Philadelphia’s first watering holes. This London Style Porter was brewed with “Old-World” in mind. Black and chocolate malts create its deep mahogany appearance and creamy espresso-like flavor. A blend of English hops lends a delicate earthy presence.

Pours appropriately for Thebes style. Smells ok, but kind of light and bland. Taste is same...mild coffee, mild roasted malts. Mouthfeel is a touch dry for the low ABV. Look, I know porters are different than stouts, but there seems to be a trend of coffee porters that seem designed to be quaffable and inoffensive and it is not my thing at all.

Notes from 11/28...pours dark black with thick creamy foam. Roasted coffee nose that is very aromatic. Smooth creamy mellow bittered taste. Clean milky finish. Chocolate in the conclusion as well. Damn good.

Had at Pizza Uno last night.
Came out kinda flat looking. Not nuch of a head over a cola brown color.
Looks thin too like a black ale.
The smell was light with just a hint of roasted malts.
The taste was equally bland with not much going for it .Some roasted malts.
Easy drinking but not really all that good.
