Wachusett Black Shack Porter

Wachusett Brewing Co

USA

This was a tasty porter with a variety of flavors. It had a pretty pleasing pour, as the head looked like a fluffy whipped coffee-colored cream, and stayed around for quite some time, leaving a nice lace on the glass as it dissipated. There was some chocolate in the background, as well as some toffee in there too. There was a bit of roasted malt in there as well. This is a regional find (possibly even local), look for it in the Boston area. If I were to have a benchmark, I'd say it's not as good as Smuttynose's Robust Porter, but still good regardless.
