Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
This 18th Century-style Smoked Porter has subtle accent of peat-like Bamberg smoked malt, which is apparent in both the aroma and flavor. It is brewed with seven varieties of premium European malted barley, resulting in note of bittersweet chocolate and coffee that are counter-balanced by a long-sustaining finish of Goldings hops.

A: The beer appears black in color but upon closer inspection it is clear but very dark red when held up to a bright light. It poured with a short tan head that died down, leaving wispy lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of dark malts are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of dark and sweet malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This porter is a good representation of the style as it is quite malty but doesn't have much in the way of hoppy flavors.

I really don't like this sour version of the style, but it is a well made brew and appropriate for the style.

It's pretty in the glass, with a big light brown head. The aroma gives away the funky door that is to come. The taste is profoundly sour, especially when too cold. This improved to a nice balance when warmer. The aftertaste followed suit, being much better as I let it sit in the sun a couple minutes on this hot day.

Although I warmed up to this brew I think I will avoid it in the future.
