Propeller London Style Porter

Propeller London Style Porter comes from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It's brewed by the John Allen Brewing Company and comes in 341mL bottles. It has a standard 5% alcohol.

The London Style Porter is a very dark amber ale, topped with a tan head--it looks pretty convincingly like a mug of root beer. It has a rich nose of malt and molasses. Flavour notes are roasted malts and nuttiness in the front end; molasses and decent hop bitterness at the finish. It's a reasonably dense, hefty brew, but not as heavy as many of its contemporaries in the porter category.

This beer is smooth and creamy, but with enough hops to keep you awake. I'd like a touch more boozy and a touch more body, but the result is a porter that can be enjoyed multiple times in a single session without suffering from the bloat.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
