Tonight's Federal Hill Firkin

From Metropolitan's e-mail:
Does anyone still want a beer after the mess of the last week?

If you do, we have a great one on cask tonight as we tap a delicious firkin of Arcadia London Porter from Arcadia Brewing Co. in Battle Creek, Michigan. London Porter is a 7.2% porter brewed in an 18th Century Style: "This is our version of an 18th Century “Smoked Porter”. Our London Porter has a subtle accent of beechwood smoked malt, which comes through nicely in the aroma and the flavor. Brewed using seven varieties of premium European malted barley, this full-bodied beer is characterized by hints of chocolate and coffee, and balanced by a  long-lingering hoppy bitterness. In a style that generally focuses on malt alone, our London Porter is unique in its rich, smoky, peaty characteristics. It has earthy, grassy notes as
well, courtesy of UK Goldings hops."
Almost makes up for missing out on SPBW and Lures tonight............  (still thinking of the sad, lonely snowman there....)
