From a bottle on a sunset cruise on Chesapeake Bay.

Deep and rich coffee and chocolate taste. Very nice mouthfeel.

From a bottle, pours brown almost black and opaque. Head is tan, thin, but long lasting. Aroma is malty. Fulsome malty flavorfulness with hints of burnt coffee and non-sweet toffee. Would pair well with beef in a heavy meal. Although this porter is solid, the depth/complexity of either the Founders Porter or the Edmund Fitzgerald Porter are superior.

Appearance: very dark brown body with thick frothy light brown head after aggressive pour, long lasting, good lacing

Smell: roasted grains; caramel; coffee grounds

Taste: sweeet malts with bitter roasted grains in the back; not overly bitter, but pretty well balanced; some hoppiness, but just enough to detect; excellent...one of the best porters I've had in a long time.

Mouthfeel: thin on this one, but I think because I poured too aggressively. The others were a bit creamier.

Remarks: Had this first on tap at Port City Brewing. Thought it was good enough to buy a six pack.

Interesting Porter out of Alexandria VA. Black with a nice thick tan head. Just a slight hint of dried/fermented fruit in the nose. The taste is well balanced between chocolate malt, mild hops, and just the slightest hint of that fermented fruit again, but not too much to handle. Drinkable like a Porter should be. Would definitely drink again.
