Description 

Our take on the English classic Porter is a bold, yet easy going black ale.  It’s chocolatey, nutty, roasty, and goes down smooth.

Old Bakery Porter by The Old Bakery Beer Co. is a very faithful representation of English Porter (Style 13C), with roasty, medium chocolate notes in the nose, reminiscent of hazelnuts and medium-roast coffee. Color was a shifty brown-to-black, with a dark tan head set firmly in place. 

Flavors came across quite toasty, with a pronounced grainy, caramel character.  Not overly sweet, supported by a good amount of bitterness, which helped with overall balance. Very neutral yeast character, and finished with a medium body, all which left the palate satisfied and ready for another sip. 

Medium amount of alcohol--true for style, with a nice restrained roastiness but yet with sufficient chocolate-like complexity.
