Last Tuesday I stopped in at Kite & Key like usual. There were a few things I'd already had on the list so I decided to go with something a little more normal and ordered a Port Brewing Midnight Expression, a schwarzbier or a black lager in English.
Clean roast nose, hints of chocolate and coffee but not overpowering. Flavors were mostly roast throughout with a light body as expected by the style. Decent schwarzbier with everything you'd expect and nothing you wouldn't. Jo drank this a few days later and liked it as well. It would definitely make a good intro to porters as the roast flavors are much more subdued.
