Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mcallister on 08-11-2010

This is a heavily hopped high gravity porter featuring the hopping levels of an India Pale Ale with the rich and roasty malt profile of a robust porter. Heavy hop rates, while uncommon in today's porters were not unknown historically and recipes from the British porter producers of the 1800's evidence hopping rates far in excess of what is common for the style today.

22 oz. bomber, snifter

A – Black, possibly with the slightest hint of brown. A small, dark tan head on top with moderate retention.

S – Reminds me of barrel aged character, with vanilla, light molasses, some oakiness. Malt is also sweet with a very roasty, slightly charred or chicory backbone. American hops, spic with somewhat piney notes.

T – Very sweet upfront, followed by a wallop of roasty, slightly charred bitterness and hop bitterness. Hops are spicy again, even peppery, mostly contributing bitterness though. Vanilla and chocolate extremely mild in the background. This one has a bite.

M – Thinner than it looks, but in keeping with a porter. Mild to moderate carbonation, definitely noticeable. And bitter, bitter, bitter.

O – Has the build of a traditional porter, but with the bitterness of a hard American Imperial stout. Interesting and memorable, and a tough one to break down, as well as a tough one to drink easily.
