Highly Commended at the 2019 New World Beer & Cider Awards. An absolute classic and the beer that founded the Emerson’s empire 27 years ago.
This proves just how drinkable a porter can be—delicate and lovely. The aroma is toasty, with a hint of sweetness and some earthy hop notes. Firm-bodied but not heavy, with a creamy texture, the dryish palate is full of roasted malt, coffeeish notes and a sustained bitterness. Notes of light milky chocolate and just a hint of ash on the lightest body.
