Description: Part of World Top’s regular lineup, this beer is fashioned in the traditional 18th-century English porter style, marrying dark roasted malts and oats to a slightly sweet kick and bitter notes of orange and roasted coffee.
Tasting Notes: This is the second time I’ve had a World Top product, and it comes to me courtesy of the Advent Beer Calendar (yep, still sampling my way through it). In any case, I did enjoy this one better than their IPA. A slightly bitter, but rich and dark malt base are nicely accompanied by notes of coffee, orange peel, roasted nuts, and some sugary molasses that make this porter live up to its name!
