Notes / Commercial Description:
Here's a taste of South Jersey, better known for farms than fist pumping. Roasted and dark crystal malts shine through in a smooth and light-bodied porter that is balanced by a hint of sweetness thanks to the local Jersey Fresh honey. Welcome to the Garden State, bro. Apiology is the bee's knees!

12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

Great looking tan lace on this very dark brew. Creamy smooth, layers of subtle sweetness dance around the dark roasty tones, unsweetened chocolate and mild charred grain on the palate. A good showing of balance and drinkability with just enough honey character to be worthy to have it in its name.

On nitro tap at the brewery.
Pours with a clear but nearly opaque reddish brown body topped with a good beige head leaves spots of sticky lacing on the glass.
Roasted malts, light coffee and subtle chocolate in the nose.
Flavorful with plenty of dark chocolate,some coffee, subtle smoke and a near equal mix of bitter and sweet.

A: Pours a dark brown to black with a tan head. Head retention is minimal with no lacing. Yet still looks inviting.

S: Dark slightly roasted malts with some chocolate.

T: Slight bitterness for a second but quickly followed with the honey backbone. Slight roasted flavor very late.

M: Good carbonation and flavor but heading for #2.

O: Great brew.
