The penultimate beer of my flight of 5 at a recent trip to Tapistry. This beer features an off white thin head that dissipates very slowly to a thin whispy lacing. The beer itself is a dark amber with mahogany edges and is clear. Very little carbonation can be seen. 3.75/5 Very enticing aroma that is deep and dark. Dark caramel, toffee, and molasses bring out a very strong sweetness but it is not an overpowering sweetness due to the dark roasted malt notes as well as a bit of cold pressed coffee. These last two notes really cut into the sweetness and keep it from becoming cloying. 4.25/5 Dark caramelized sugar, toffee, and molasses once again come out in the flavor and provide a burst of dark sweetness up front. After the initial sweetness, smooth espresso, dark chocolate, and a small amount of vanilla show up to cut into that sweetness a bit. Slightly herbal notes of hops come out on the back end but the bitterness seems to be provided more from the coffee and chocolate notes than anything. Very light lingering bitterness. 4/5 Medium-heavy body in stature with a wet full-tongue coating throughout the profile. Somewhat creamy and viscous but not overly so. There is a light carbonation burn up front but this dissipates fairly quickly. Very little dryness and no lingering dryness. 4/5 Very flavorful beer that features a good balance of sweet and bitter. Heavy enough to be a full bodied beer but not heavy enough to weigh you down in the stomach. 4/5

I got a can of Tapistry's Peck's Porter for $2.58 at The Lager Mill. It's been a little while since I've had an English Style Porter and I'm interested to see what Tapistry can do with the style, so lets see how it goes. 2015 Vintage. Poured from a 16oz can into a imperial pint glass.

A- The can looks nice, it's got a good design to it and it's just a little eye catching. It poured a nice dark black color that took on a little bit of a brown color when held to the light with a fingers worth of bubbly tan head that died down to a thin ring that stayed till the end and it left some spotty and patchy lacing behind. This is a good looking beer, it's what I would expect from the style.

S- The aroma starts off with a medium amount of sweetness with the malts being the first to show imparting a roasted malt, caramel malt, light chocolate and light roasted aromas and it's followed by the English yeast which imparts a typical aroma for english yeast. Towards the end I get a little more caramel along with the hops which just impart a little bit of generic hoppy aroma. This beer has a pretty nice aroma, it's what I would expect from the style.

T- The taste seems to be similar to the aroma and it starts off with a medium amount of sweetness with the malts being the first to show up and they impart the same aspects that they did in the aroma, but this time it's more roasted and robust with some milk chocolate and cocoa flavors coming through. Up next comes the English yeast which is a little lighter than it was in the aroma and it's followed by the hops which impart a light generic hop flavors with some coffee and coffee like bitterness showing up at the end with a chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt aftertaste. This is a good tasting beer, it's more robust than most English style Porters and I like that.

M- Fairly smooth, a little creamy, slightly crisp, medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel is pretty nice and it works well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a good beer and pretty nice example of the style, it was more robust than most so it wasn't the truest to style, but it worked really well with this beer and it felt like it was a mixture between a American and an English Porter. This beer had good drinkability, I could drink a couple of these, especially when it starts to colder outside. What I like the most about this beer is that I could still tell it was an English Porter, but it was more robust than most. What I like the least about this beer is nothing, there isn't anything that I disliked or would change. I would buy this beer again and I would recommend it to anyone who likes Porters. All in all I was happy with this beer and a little Impressed, Tapisty can make some good beers and it shows with those which is like a fusion of the two Porter styles. It's one of the better Tapisty beers and it's above average for the style. Good job guys, this is one tasty Porter.

Big thanks to strohme2 for this
16 oz can poured into a pint glass

T- Cocoa, dark chocolate, some coffee and roasted malts, some earthy hops, touch of dark fruits.

M- Smooth, a little creamy, medium to full body.
