Just as a disclaimer, Troegs is my favorite brewery (a hometown hero of sorts) and the Trogner brothers' dedication and skill in brewing world class beers notwithstanding, I review this beer as impartially as possible.
Pour a dark brown into a pint glass with a cloudy opaque body. This beer is unfiltered.
It smells sweet but robust, with scents of chocolate and burnt oak. The foamy head quickly recedes to a filmy layer of whispy lace. The first taste is smooth, and creamy, but has a hoppier back end than most porters which is a welcome characteristic.
It's easy to drink, delicious and the perfect beer for the changing seasons. It's great to see a porter rolled out by Troegs in preparation for its colder season beers like Oatmeal Stout and the fan-favorite Mad Elf. Now if only Pennsylvania would start selling six packs... but that's another story.
Troegs official website has this beer listed at 5.8% ABV. I have submitted a change request based on this info.
According to this site it is also a seasonal release as opposed to a rotating release and that it is currently replacing its Oatmeal Stout for the year rather than supplementing it. More info on their Oatmeal Stout to follow.
