Tasting Notes: Southern Tier Porter

Brewery: Southern Tier Brewing Company
Style: Porter

ABV: 5.2%

Date Poured: August 2009

Part of a sampler pack I picked up while driving through Maryland a couple months ago.

Pours thick, pitch black in color topped with a thin tan head. A sweet aroma with some dark chocolate and a hint of mocha.

The taste follows the aroma for the most part. It's still sweetish with notes of dark chocolate but with more, a bit of herbal hops present. Good body, sweetish but with a clean finish.

Tasty. Very drinkable. The only knock I can give this beer is that I wish it was a bit more roasty but that's just a personal preference.
