a very well made porter, but this is probably their most in line with style beer they had on, and while its a classic english example, it lacked the sort of originality most of the others had here. i like it being on the lighter bodied side as porters go, and i really like the bready earthy english ale yeast strain in here, its fresh and distinct. some roasted malt bitterness here, but it almost seems more to me like hop bitterness. not quite black ipa or anything, this is really approachable stuff, but there certainly are some hops here, and they come through a lot in the drier finish. this has a lightness of feel about it that i really like, good carbonation but not the biggest body, which makes it a better food beer and something i could easily drink several pints of, which i also found true in most of the other beers these guys are making right now. i would take their brown ale leaps and bounds in front of this porter, but if you are looking for more of a black beer, this is sure to satisfy. slight burnt note in the finish too, grounding and balancing, delicious.
