Poured into a pint glass from a bottle with a "best enjoyed before" date of July 2014.

A thick, fluffy, light-brown foam head forms over a rich dark brown body.

The aroma consists of floral notes with a heavy, almost meaty backdrop.

On first the sip I tasted strong notes of toasted malts. There were mild hints of fruit, particularly blackberry. It initially seems creamy but ends with a semi-bitter finish.

Bottom Line: As many others have reviewed, this is a very average Porter. This is not a bad beer by any means, however there are many other Porters that I would recommend over this one. If you do not have loyalties to a particular Porter then give Kennebunkport a try, you might like it.

Dark brown with a light head that quickly disparate to a ring around the chilled mug.
Smell is almost non-existent. Very drinkable porter with enough carbonation to tingle the whole tongue and and a bitterness that sustains the full depth of the swallow. The KBC porter mouth feel is easy to drink after day at work without an overwhelming alcohol content making a relaxing sensation that is very satisfying but not overwhelming. Overall, for the price purchased at Trader Joes make it a value for those who want a dark beer to relax to after a hard day at work. Although not a stellar porter is very easy to enjoy without the heavy alcohol content and sweetness that are found in others of this style.
