I would not be able to predict how classic this English style porter is. My first reaction to it before drinking was "Here's just another microbrewery bastardizing the English Porter." But this "bevvy ain't bollocks," as it were, with its 4.8%.

At first whiff you notice the the chocolaty aromas. When you taste it, the flavors immediately hit you with a wallop--I instantly noticed the caramel, raisin, and chocolate. For a darker beer, this one is not only drinkable, but quaff-able.

I paired this low carbonation porter with a thinly-sliced steak, and the earthy undertones complimented the beef.

I normally do not drink porters out of a bottle, but due to limited means I had to make due. Despite this handicap, I enjoyed the beer and would probably take it as a reward on a hike/bike trek. There's a large payoff, without an overwhelming feeling of being buzzed henceforth.
