The. Best. Porter. What more needs to be said? I live about 15 minutes from the brewery and get a growler of this about once a week. Beyond delicious, so well balanced, toasted with a little note of coffee at the end. Perfectly roasted!

Bottled March '14.
Very dark brown. Fully opaque. Forms a large tan head that takes a while to settle down. Leaves some spotty lacing on the way down. Aroma is dark toasty-roasty malts with some lighter notes of pine. Taste is comprised of deeply roasted malts, baking chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. Not sure if it is the age of the beer, but unfortunately, this beer is heavily over carbonated, giving it a lighter body than it should have and thinning out the taste. Overall, I could see this beer having potential, but the carbonation is far too lively for this to be a world-class beer.

Bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar in Waterbury, VT.

Pours a very dark brown, with a half inch head, and little bit of lacing- not a whole lot.

Smells pretty nice- chocolate, a little bit of dark fruit, vanilla cream, and roasted malt.

This tastes amazing, a bit like an Irish dry stout meets an English porter. A wisp of smoke flavor, baker's chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts and roasted coffee, raisins. It's all subtle, and doesn't bash you over the head, but it's all there. Great flavor for only 5.5% ABV.

This one has a really creamy, amazing mouthfeel, with a lower amount of carbonation, and a body of medium thickness.

An absolutely delicious English porter. The high ratings are absolutely justified- it should honestly be rated higher and talked about more. Find this if you can, and drink a ton of it.
