Narragansett Porter - Beer of the Week

For this week's beer, I turn my drinking attention to the Northeast's newest oldest brand, Narragansett. Once upon a time, this brewery was synonymous with imbibing in the New England region. But business decisions and declining quality sent the brand into a downward spiral. No longer. An able team has turned the brand around, and the brewery is cranking out killer lagers and this lovely treat. The porter pours dark and delicious, with a nice lick of bitterness and tons of creamy cocoa. Me like. Even better? The beer comes by the 16-ounce can, making for a delicious value (I paid $8.99 a six-pack.) Curious? Drink up the full review at Slashfood!
