22oz bomber poured into a Three Floyds' Teku glass
The beer pours a lovely jet black color, extremely opaque texture with a thick, cloudy khaki head that leaves behind a touch of lacing. The aroma is nice, lots of rich chocolate, touches of vanilla with some nice brown sugar notes as well, roasted coffee with some nice dark grain brings out a touch of alcohol at the finish. The flavors are very pleasant, big rich dark grain right off the bat, a bit of sweet chocolate and vanilla, grassy bitter hops bring out some smokiness. There is a nice bit of roasted coffee flavor that lingers really nicely. The body is nice and rich, almost milky yet almost thin, carbonation is right in the medium sweet spot with a very dry finish.
Verdict: A very tasty Christmas Porter from Three Floyds. The flavors are nice and rich, but the grassy hop presence really adds something interesting to this beer, per their motto, “It’s Not Normal.” Definitely a nice treat to enjoy each winter.
