On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

A dark brown porter with ruby highlights at the edges. The most incredible lacing shines down the glass. Leaves the glass sticky and messy. Looks rich and decadent.

Roasted malts on the nose. Smells like a roasty and robust porter, though I don't get much chocolate aroma.

There's certainly more chocolate in the flavor and it's actually really nice. Balanced, sweet, bitter, roasted malts, chocolate--very good.

Medium bodied. Ample carbonation.

A tasty yet unaromatic porter. This beer has a decidedly nice chocolate character. I enjoyed it a lot and it made for a wonderful dessert.

Picked up a bomber from BevMo at the end of May for $4.89. No freshness date.

Beer poured dark brown with a nice off white head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is light chocolate .

Taste is light chocolate and vanilla. Hopping keeps the sweetness at bay. Finish is dry and the alcohol is too warming with every sip.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied but pretty smooth.

Overall this is a decent winter dessert beer but nothing special.

650ml brown bottle purchased from Barny's in Alexandria, Sydney.

Pours a cola-brown hue, with a coarse-crackling head of beige that last only about as long as the head on Coke would, settling out very quickly to a mesh that looks like dragonfruit flesh, flacked with tiny dots. Body is extremely light for 8% ABV.

Nose is certainly odd. There's a dry, dusty cocoa character to it, but also a lot of aridity—there's so little sweetness and it lends other characters a leg-up to put their weirdnesses on centre stage. I get some pepper characters, a little black olive and papadums. This is on top of the base beer, which has some oddly vinous tones to it. There's also a strange hint of chlorine in the mix. All up, it's a bit of a mess.

Taste is fairly similar. There's a thinness to the body that runs through from front to back, leaving very little room for much in the way of flavour or complexity—it just doesn't have much to work with. That being said, there is some mild cacao notes around the mid-palate, and a linger of powdery cocoa on the back—very dry, however, and lacking depth.

Feel is a bit empty—it feels like there's a little weight there, but some of the vinous characters seem to rip it back to its bare bones.

I don't get it. Is this bottle just clearly bad? I don't notice anything in it that would explain the insipidness of it all, but insipid it most certainly is. I'm really quite disappointed—I'd heard some reasonable things about Hangar 24, but my first exposure to them is certainly woefully awry.
