Moon River Captain’s Porter
Moon River Captain’s Porter is an American Porter, 5.3% ABV.
This pours with an expected dark brown color and a light tan head that had not yet settled by the time my pint made it’s way to the table! The aroma carries some mild roasted malts, chocolate, and just a hint of smoke and coffee. The taste starts sweet and creamy, very Milk Stout like. The roasted malt flavor is mild and and almost nutty, reminding me of good English Porter. In addition there is some coffee, chocolate and a touch of hops on the palate as well. The finish turns rather dry and a touch bitter, balancing out the sweeter flavors at the start of the taste.
Very solid beer, this is one of my go-to beers when I’m at the brewpub.
