Val and I went to Hamilton to try a new beer place. The beer was good, but the food was terrible. The place was empty and it took forever to get any service. It was very annoying, especially because I wanted to watch some of the NFL playoffs.
Style: American Porter
Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “The Township of Ocean was created by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on February 21, 1849, from portions of Shrewsbury Township, at which time the newly formed township stretched from the Shrewsbury River to the southern tip of Avon-by-the-Sea. Portions of the township have been taken to form Long Branch (April 11, 1867), Eatontown (April 4, 1873), Asbury Park (March 26, 1874), Neptune Township (February 26, 1879), Sea Bright (March 21, 1889), Allenhurst (April 26, 1897), Deal (March 7, 1898), Monmouth Beach (March 9, 1906), Interlaken (March 11, 1922) and Loch Arbour (April 23, 1957). The township derives its name from its original seaside location.”
Random: Kane changed their entire website, so no information about this beer.
This beer poured with no head on top of a dark brown body. The body was so dark that I couldn’t pick up any carbonation. The nose was filled with roasted malts, smoke and maple syrup. The taste was a lot of maple syrup sweetness up front and quick went into dark chocolate and roasted malts. There was some smoke as well. The alcohol was present, but not abrasive. It had a thick and chewy body with light carbonation. It had a lengthy and sweet finish with chocolate and maple syrup. I enjoyed this beer a lot and would definitely have it again.
