First whiff....PURE HOPS! Pours a nice dark brown with a tan head. Very nice lacing all the way down, too...but maybe 'cause I used one of my new Sam Adams glasses that BA was so nice to give us founding subscribers?! Anyway, I don't like too much hops, as I always say. They DO have their place, but this "porter" was waaaay too hopped up. Very typical of Troegs.. Really tasted like all hops with the smallest, faintest hint of chocolate malt in the very background. As the beer warmed, though, the hops were dulled down a bit, and the other flavors came through better. I love to support the locals...but this is one I'll pass on in the future. Their Nut Brown is much better, as is the Troegenator! Those are my two very favorites from Troegs...and my buddy's as well. Mad Elf isn't too bad, either. All the others seem way too hoppy. If you can try this for free...I'd do it. Otherwise, don't expect a normal porter with this one. Not my cup of tea. Think I'd rather have a cup of tea...with some brandy. SAAALUTE and cheers my BA friends!
