Lancaster Shoo Fly Pie Porter

Lancaster Shoo Fly Pie PorterInspired by long and rich traditions, Lancaster Brewing Company is located in the heart of Lancaster County, PA. Brewing alongside scores of old-world craftsmen, independent farmers and their fiercely independent Amish neighbors. Lancaster Brewing Company boasts a portfolio of over a dozen and a half beers, one of their latest releases pays homage to a local favorite, the Shoo Fly Pie!

The beer pours a rich deep cola with some ruby highlights when viewed directly against light. The generous dense two finger head recedes extremely slowly. Once the head completely dissipates a lovely lacing remains.

Aromas of roasted malts and a hint of char create a rich and dark backdrop for contrasting notes of sweet molasses, rich black cherry and creamy vanilla. Hints of espresso, chocolate and roasted Bavarian nuts are also detectable.

On the palate the sweet molasses hits up front. Roasted malt and nut notes can be found among the molasses. Creamy vanilla notes flow freely throughout while black cherry notes pepper the palate in waves. A touch of cocoa is discernible on the mid-palate and a bitter espresso note hits on the finish combating the sweetness.

Lancaster does justice to one of the region’s most renown desserts. This smooth, lighter style porter is a great pair for Stilton, glazed baked ham or of course, Shoo Fly pie! 3 out of 5 Pints
