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.

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.

Black color,medium carbonation. - aroma of roasted malt and honey. Taste was identical to aroma,roasted malt and a mild bit of honey. A slight bitter aftertaste but a good solid porter that I would try again

Appearance: dark black color, white head.
Aroma: salty, malt, honey,
Taste: salt water, tar, coffee, honey.

Not bad. The salty aroma and taste is not bad, just unexpected, though it ties this beer to the Jersey Shore."

I found plenty of roast and light chocolate character both with faint bitterness. I did taste some honey, but to me the sweet side of this one had a pleasant milky quality. Good stuff.

On draft.
Pours a muddy water with a slight lacing.
Smells of sweet roasted notes
Feel is thin and a little more watery than I prefer.
The taste is a dark roast upfront, slight bitterness that is balanced against a sweetness from the honey. The after taste is perfectly balanced between the malts and honey.
