Town Hall Cross Pond Porter. 5.2% ABV.
Dark brown coloring, slim tanned head.
In the nose: roasted malt. A little caramel, a little sweetness, some dark fruit, then all ending dry on the palate.
In the mouth: Gets on board the palate with gusto, stays smooth all the way. Layers of flavors, coffee, toffee, caramel, a little cocoa. Staying mostly malty, with hardly a peep out of hops. Just enough flavor to keep interesting while being superbly drinkable.
Merely described on the website as "English-American hybrid porter." I'd be curious to learn more about that. What parts of each style were combined? What left, what stayed.
