Notes / Commercial Description:
An English porter made with local Cape May honey. Brewed with hallertau hops the beer has restrained roasty characteristics that make it unique from stouts. Originating in England, porter evolved from a blend of beers or gyles known as “Entire.” A precursor to stout, it is said to have been favored by porters and other physical laborers.

I'm not a porter drinker, but this honey porter was delicious. Dark and nutty in taste, smell and appearance, the porter goes down easy with a light, gently sweet mouth feel. It has a smoky, nutty flavor with the perfect hint of honey. Could drink it beer by beer and never tire of it. Quite possibly the best from Cape May Brewing Company so far.

Excellent American Porter, Has a sweet malty flavor, chocolate notes without bitterness. Highly recommended. Great for the winter time, plan on putting a keg of this in, in november.

I tried this on tap the other night at Lucky Bones in Cape May.

Great tasting beer. I'm not huge fan of porters but this was delicious. I really liked the body it had. Perhaps from the honey?

It's a solid beer, way better than some of the big commerical beers I've had.

Their brewery is really cool if you make it over there.

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.
