Notes / Commercial Description:
The Pensacola Lighthouse is an icon for our hometown, and so is our Porter. For centuries, a light high above a tower has served as a beacon to sailors at sea. Even though we don’t keep the Lighthouse Porter on our roof, you’d be surprised at how many sailors seem to think it’s a sign!

The Gulf’s shallow waters can be treacherous. Without the Pensacola Lighthouse, who knows how many ships would have succumbed to a dark and foggy night? Find your way out of the dreary rat race and relax with the Lighthouse Porter

The Lighthouse Porter is flavorful, without being heavy. An enjoyable sipping beer, you’ll definitely find your way to shore with our Lighthouse Porter.

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight roasted malt, hint of yeast, hint of chocolate, and a hint of hops. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight roasted malt, hint of yeast, hint of chocolate, and a hint of hops. Overall, decent aroma, decent body, and decent blend.

Poured from a bomber that I paid $6 for into a snifter.

Looks pretty thin and highly carbonated.

Smells very faintly of roasted malts, but mainly sweet and like yeast.

Tastes very sweet up front. Barely noticeable coffee and roasted grains on the back end. Ever so slightly ashy.

Very thin bodied and way over carbonated. Very prickly.

If this beer were billed as a Belgian stout it still wouldnt be real great, but certainly better scoring. This tastes and feels like it was brewed with cola.
