Very simple bottle art, but the bottle says it all; It's a Porter from a small company called Southern Tier. This brewery is in my home state so I try to support them more than others.

This was actually my first porter that I ever tried and I loved it. I haven't had to many others to compare it to, but this beer made me a Porter fan. Very dark with an awesome flavor, but still goes down so smooth. For a beer this dark it is amazing how smooth it really is.

I always have a sixer of this stuff in my beer fridge. I haven't found anyone that didn't like this porter from Southern Tier!!

Black brew, tinges of red when held up to the light. Thin head, off white color. Smell is smoky, malty, light hops. Taste is good, slightly smokey, sweet, mild hops after inital taste. Mouthfeel of this beer is thick and malty. Very nice. I think this brew is definitely drinkable and wish I had another.

Very pleasing. With coffee and chocolate nuances. Smooth with little alcohol presence. Slight hop finish.
