Copper Crow Chocolate Thunder Porter

I ordered a glass of Copper Crow [no website, formerly the General Lafayette Inn & Brewery) Chocolate Thunder Porter while at The Brewhouse in Camp Hill. The beer pours a black color with a foamy tan head. The aroma consists of vanilla, chocolate, milk, and toffee. The taste is big on chocolate with a light vanilla undertone that transitions into coffee with toffee accents. Then comes a light alcohol bite before a finish that is a little dry with toasted malts. The alcohol content is 5.6% ABV. I really enjoyed the sweet vanilla and toffee accents that came through in the beer without overwhelming the chocolate and coffee focus of the beer.


  1. I had this also at the brew house and loved it. Now I can't find it anywhere to buy.

  2. Christin, Jeff... Keep asking for it as we continue to brew it in Lafayette Hill and North Wales. We're currently considering distribution options, but you should see MUCH more of it in 2011. The London Grill in Fairmount, for example, has been serving the cask conditioned version for some time now. Cheers! C. Leonard, Brewmaster
