Arcadia Ale-London Porter

Arcadia Brewing Company was established in 1996 as a microbrewery specializing in handcrafted British-style ales. All of their beers are produced in small batches, and their 25 Barrel Peter Austin Brewery and methods originated in England, which allows this style of beer to reflect over 250 years of world class brewing heritage.

Arcadia Ales

This is their version of an 18th Century “Smoked Porter”. A dark, black hue with a barley malt aroma. Decent head and lacing as seen below.

It has an extraordinary taste, malty, caramel, and chocolate??? Yes, I was right, according to their site with also hints of coffee(I mistakenly thought caramel). A bitter, creamy aftertaste, other wise not bad for a porter. For being a porter, I would almost swear it was a stout!

I enjoyed this porter and hope you do too.
