Swisher
Porter
ABV: 6% | IBU: 420 | SRM: 42

Smoked malt is one of the more dubious tools in a brewer's bag because thresholds are vastly different. What to one palate is a hint of bacon or a whiff of BBQ to another is ashtray or Band-Aids. How can Carton ignore playing this game? Where can smoldering aromatics go off the beaten craft? In Swisher we have reassembled the deconstructed aspects of Swisher Wrap. Rich dark malts brought smoky by the addition of oak smoked pale wheat, touched with sour cherries and a heavy plug of the hops that smell like their cousins. Drink Swisher and hand me down a 50-pack.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: A dark brown, not to much transparency, a tiny little head the top that goes away slowly, a good amount of lacing around the glass as drink it.

S: Hints of hazelnut, nutmeg and cinnamon, some sort of dark fruit in there as well, a pleasant nose on this brew.

T: Very earthy beer with a nice hint of hazelnut and some cherry in there as well, a good balanced brew, nice roastyness to it as well.

M: Chewy and thick mouthfeel, good amount of carbonation.

O: Taste a good amount like coffee, well balanced brew with a lot of stuff going on, very good mixture, well brewed.
