An American Porter with 6.4% ABV, Captain Lawrence Brewing Company's Smoked Porter is a complex beer, brewed with imported German smoked malts. This porter is available year-round in bottles, casks, growlers and on-tap; it's what you'd call thick. Smoked Porter pours out very dark brown with garnet highlights and a tall creamy tan head with lots of bubbles. The nose of this brew is smooth, offering notes of smoked wood, licorice, coffee, and dark fruit. Smoked Porter's taste is equally rich, a balanced profile of smokiness, roasted malt, coffee, and malty sweetness. The finish is creamy, mildly sweet with a chocolate bite, and the carbonation is moderate and pleasing. Porters can hold their own with strong tastes; pair this one with smoked or grilled meats, barbecue dishes, buttery cheeses, or with chocolate as a dessert beer. Captain Lawrence Smoked Porter sips well from a pint glass, mug, or stein, at 45-50�F.
