A friend visited the Starkey's Lookout as part of a finger lakes birthday excursion. He brought back a growler of G.C. Starkey beer's new winter porter and I was fortunate enough to be with him when he first opened it. This is my first review, I am a fairly new beer advocate and usually don't review but I wanted to get this one up on the site.
A - Dark Brown with about a one inch cream head.
S - Smells like a typical porter with the chocolate scent. But there's something else as well, something sweeter.
T - Chocolate malts with what seems to be a caramel taste swirled in their as well. Not the biggest fan of porters but this taste profile works well for me.
M - On the lighter side. This beer is tasty but it isn't a big beer. My guess would be that the abv is around 5 but I cannot confirm.
Overall - Again I'm new to reviewing beers but I really enjoyed the caramel taste on this one. Not a cloying sweetness like say Southern Tier Pumking but a nice subtle presence to go along with the chocolate of a porter. Of the porters I've tried this winter I'd rank this one ahead of old leg humper but below anchor porter. Would definitely drink again if given the opportunity.
