22oz bomber into a wicked weed snifter. batch #45 so this is from about 11 months ago.

pours a dark black with a nice inch thick brown head. smell jumps out at you right away even though its still a bit cold... roasty malts are very aromatic as well as hints of toffee. taste is very bold and a bit hoppy, especially for a porter. i get a lot of sweet chocolate and coffee. finishes sweet and dry and with a pretty big mouthfeel for a porter. damn good honestly. carbonation is perfect and drinkability is high.

overall highly exceeded expectations, even for spiteful which i have had nothing but good experiences with in the past. terrific for style!

22 oz. bottle, with handwritten Batch #45 written on the label. A new beer to me from Spiteful Brewing, out of Chicago, my first encounter with a porter from these guys. Expectations are good.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Pours a dark chocolate brown; appears opaque black in the glass with about a finger to two fingers of thick khaki-tan head.

S - The smell is comprised of charred roasty English malts. A bit of caramel / toffee makes an appearance. Chocolate. The hop presence is noted, but not overpowering.

T - Taste brings more of the same, roasty, lightly charred, chocolate, coffee beans, caramel / toffee, and a hint of hop presence, but nothing too extreme like how others have said. Earthy / herbal hoppiness is most noticeable on the end.

M - The feel is smooth & creamy. Milky. Medium-bodied with good, low carbonation. Roasty bitterness on the finish.

Overall, a solid example of the style from Spiteful Brewing. I am interested to see how the other variants of this beer are, and I can't wait to crack the barrel-aged version!

Spiteful Brewing God Damn Pigeon Porter ---4/5.

A nice deep brown in color with a finger of sand colored head (tan with a light hue), nice lacing left behind. Smells of cocoa, raspberry/blackberry, almost a coca cola scent to this.. Slightly roasty, sweet malts, smells.. Well dark , and slightly fruity. Flavor is god damn raspberry! Haha, lots of raspberry up front with a roasty finish.. Bit of chocolate, roasted grains. Damn tasty fo'sho'

.. Lighter Medium body medium carbonation.. I wish it were slightly fuller.
This is pretty awesome for a fruit beer. I've had raspberry stouts before and they weren't that great, but something light like a porter works well with the berry flavor.
