Gearys "London Porter"
D.L. Geary Brewing Company - Portland, Maine USA
Porter (ABV 4.2%)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]


Rating: 3.4/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a very dark brown with a reddish hue and an average (1-2 finger) light brown rocky head that was mostly diminishing, down to a thin puddling and medium collar that produced fair runny lacing.

The aroma was of dark roasted malts and a sweaty leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee and a hint of molasses.

The taste was very malty with a touch of bitter chocolate and a hint of sweet molasses in the beginning, and then slowly progressed with a slightly bitter sweet coffee flavor towards the end. The flavor hung around for a short while with the mild bitter coffee taste becoming more dominant as time pasted.

Mouthfeel was a bit below medium in body and rather thin in texture with a somewhat prickly carbonation.

Overall a pretty basic Porter with a good flavor and easy drinkability, I could see myself drinking a few of these...
