Kennebunk Porter

Kennebunk Porter, from Kennebunk Brewing Company (aka Federal Jack’s Brewpub), Kennebunk, ME, pours really black with slight chestnut highlights.  The bouquet is pleasant and contains notes of sweet cream and butter, and light patent malt.  Not the bad beer butter smell, but a pleasant and complimentary one.  Kennebunk Porter floats a whispy head that leaves very little lace.  The taste has a bit of licorice, a bit of coffee and has a sooth, buttery texture, and again, the buttery aspect is not offensive.  There is some coffee in the finish.  Kennebunk Porter is fairly drinkable, but it is not exactly inspiring.

60/100 Porter
