Porter

Slightly confusing since this has a label that is different to the one in the BA database and has the words “Norse Porter” in addition to an ABV of 6.5% as opposed to 6.0%. For now, this review will sit here.
$8.99 for the 16.9 floz bottle from Arbor Place Beverage, Douglasville, GA, USA.
Pours HUGE at first giving a mountainous espresso like, fine bubbled head. This recedes quickly to leave (disappointingly) no lace. Nice fine and small mocha head sits atop the jet black, Guinness like body. Each new pour from the bottle leads to more enormous head and this gets a little annoying.
Nose is mildly roasty, but not much, and if anything is slightly acidic with some lactose notes. This gets repeated a little in the tastes, as the mild roast gives way to an almost milk stout like finish. A little hop bitterness in there too, but this is a pretty restrained beer in terms of bitterness.
Light mouthfeel as opposed to much creaminess. Finishes with more of that mild, lacto acidity.
A little atypical I would suggest, but nevertheless very tasty. Like a thin milk stout.
