  • From a 2010 bottle.

    Pours opaque with a half glass of deep tan, small bubbled foam that is packed tight. Retention is about right for the amount of foam. Thick lacing seeps back to level, leaving a couple of millimeters of foam in its wake.

    Aroma, taste, etc are old. This "small" stout is well past its' prime. Need to have a fresh bottle to give this beer a fair chance. Going to give this 6s across the board until another day.

Beer Notes
  • In 1609 Henry Hudson entered Penobscot Bay in the vessel the "Half Moon". Four hundred years later the Half Moon is back in Penobscot Bay! Based on an old porter recipe described as brave, proud, or "Stout". A one hour mash of pale, crystal, chocolate and wheat malts, and a large portion of roasted barley yield this dark, full-bodied stout with a heavy aroma of fresh roasted coffee. The mild Fuggles hops balances the bitternes
