Port Jeff Porter brewed in Port Jefferson, New York


Port Jeff Porter brewed in Port Jefferson, New York     

While brewing its Porter, the brewers at Port Jeff wanted to keep it as traditional as possible. The final product is something that a shipbuilder would have enjoyed after a long, hard day in the yard. Dark in color, smooth in flavor, and sweetened with local organic honey, this Porter will have you dreaming of fair winds and following seas. Malts include Maris Otter, Black Patent, Caramel, and Chocolate. Hops are Fuggles, Northdown. ABV: 6.5%. Took the bronze medal at the 2012 U.S. Open Beer Championship.

Beer Review by Beer Advocate:
Appearance - The contents of the growler are as dark as the cap screwed on. Opened the filled to the brim growler and filled my founders snifter. This beer looked a pewter black in the glass with a thin porter bubbly head that fizzled away as quick as it was poured. Standard fare for a porter.

Aroma - Very nice. Classic charred porter with great notes of chocolate and vanilla. robust and roasty, but mostly charred.

Taste - Burnt chocolate, roasted malts and some dry bitterness. Really well done porter.

Mouthfeel - Pretty full bodied...fizzy. Finishes dry and a tad bitter. A bit excessive on the fizziness, even for a porter.

Overall - This is a solid porter. I'm very proud to have this beer produced locally and look forward to exploring more brews from this local newcomer. No wonder this one has been tough to get. d'oh...call me homer on this beer.
