Black body, ample rising tan foam, leaves behind some spindly lace.

Roasty rich coffee aroma, nice. Possibly some unique character from the Simcoe, hard to tell.

Bitter and roasty flavors of black malt, dry coffee, nutty almond and chicory. Finish is very dry and moderately bitter, not much hop flavor just bitterness. Medium bodied and smooth. A tasty porter brewed with English Amber malt and American Simcoe hops. Well balanced and drinkable, considering the higher abv.

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.

Served in a nonic pint glass.

Gotta have something to go with these skewers, and this one jumped out at me first. It pours a deep, dark black-brown topped by over a finger of dark khaki foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, mild coffee, a hint of dark chocolate powder, and a kiss of greenery. The taste brings in more of the same, with the greens attempting a full balance against the roast and chocolate, but not fully achieving such a status. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a solid porter, one that went pretty well with the salmon skewers I was eating without smothering their not-so-robust flavor. Good times.

Appearance: Pours with a medium to above average thickness. About three to four fingers of creamy head on the pour. Settled slightly but was very present while drinking. Pitch black appearance in the glass.

Smell: The dark simcoe hops hit right away. Sweet roasted malt and barley are present in the body. The dark fruits and malt keep coming back in waves. The hop accents in this brew is surprisingly refreshing.

Taste: Like the aroma, the hop presence hits right away. Again surprisingly floral and bright for a porter. Sugary malty body mixes very well with the hops. Waves of complexity keep coming over the palette long after drinking. The finish is on the lighter side, some syrupy malt texture stays behind.

Mouthfeel: Light but very refreshing. Some nice malt texture left behind.

Overall: A really excellent porter. Almost drinks like a black IPA, but the sweet malt accents keep it grounded as a porter. I'm usually not a huge fan of this much hop presence in a porter, but this one was very well done.
