Black Hook Porter pours a black as black can be red from a 12oz dark brown glass bottle with a pry off cap. Head went to about one and a half fingers before going down to a broken carpet of fine foam with full ring.
Nose is a burnt floral hops and barley malt. palate is a burnt sweet malt and burnt hops. (We are talking burnt toast here.) Some sweet malt is still left, but not a lot... and the Red Hook hops profile. The level of carbonation is right on the money for this style... nothing frothing over the top of my glass, thats for sure.
Black Hook Porter is a refreshing break from the six pack of blonds a day world and worth another look.
