Style: English Porter

A rich, chocolaty English Porter with a clean finish. We use the finest floor-malted Maris Otter malts from England, the same malts used for the best single-malt scotch. A portion of malted rye gives a spicy, slightly dry finish.

Poured a deep dark brown with soft tan head. Aroma was roasted malt with some cocoa. Taste was initially roasted malt with a mild bitterness followed by bittersweet chocolate and finally tart cherry on the finish. The mild tartness stuck with me the most.

Had this on 2014-12-09 in Gallatin, TN from a bottle.

A - Dark brown with a 1/2-finger tan head and moderate lace.

S - Milk chocolate and mild-medium roasted grain, touch of milk. Fairly mild.

T - Slightly burnt sourdough rye bread, a bit of chocolate, mild pepper and earthy spice. Not very sweet.

M - Light body and medium-heavy carbonation. On the thin side.

O - The sourdough rye flavors in this brew diminished from what I like in a roasty porter. A decent brew but not in the same league as a Founders Porter.
