1638th Review on BA
Growler to Goblet
Thanks to Crystal for sharing, Shared with Steve and Mike and Brian
App- More along the lines of a small black color. A bit brown around the edges and fairly dense. A bit see through around the edges. The head was a nice bit of light tan and fairly bubbly. Small cling and lace. Looked good.
Smell- A bit grainular with a rough bit of booze. Once it warmed a bit more, it became a bit nicer with a lot of the base malts coming out with some sugars and some dark chocolates as well. The barrel come out a little bit more with a bit of char, oak and grain behind it.
Taste- This was a nice porter with some very good barrel character. A bit grainy for me with a slightly off earthiness and nuttiess. Semi- balanced but still better than most BA Porters. (Shipwreck excluded). A nice bit of chocolate and malts as well.
Mouth- A full medium body with a medium dense carbonation. Fairly rich and decadent with a solidness behind it. The residual flavors are that of chocolate and a little booze behind it.
Drink- A nice BA porter. Stone needs to bottle this. Like soon!
