Stubbs – A full flavored, medium-to-full bodied porter with smoked overtones. This beer falls somewhere between a brown porter and a robust porter as far as traditional beer categories go. It’s definitely a malt forward beer with a little hop bitterness that is balanced with a smoky finish. It is almost black but will have ruby overtones if help up to the light.
There are flavors of chocolate and smoke due to the specialty malts used in this beer. This beer goes great with smoked and grilled meats such as bacon, steak or pork as well as rich chocolate or coffee flavored desserts. By the way, Stubb is the feisty first mate from Cape Cod on the Pequod, who is always smoking a pipe.

“Call me Ishmael. Some years ago — never mind how long precisely — having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world.” Chapter 1, “Loomings”
