$4.99 Arbor Beverage, Douglasville, GA.
Mmm, mildly disappointed, but tempered by my love for Porters in general. This brew probably resembles the style in a truer fashion than some of the more contemporary beers, but was a little too smoky, a little too bitter and a little less smooth than I have become accustomed to in a Porter. This would not be my first choice, and I believe there are plenty of other cheaper, better beers of similar style out there (St. Peter’s Old Style Porter for example).
Gave a huge head with a non-aggressive pour, with lots of nice lacing – something we see too little of in general. Smoky, woody aromas and initial flavors with some mild bitterness in the aftertaste is not what I have become familiar with. This Porter lacked the real smoothness and creaminess of many others.
Still, a nice beer that I would recommend and go back to myself.
