Style: Baltic Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Weighing in at 5.2% ABV, Alice Porter hides a huge complexity behind her modest strength. Roasty and smooth with fruity, rich coffee character. Alice Porter takes a sudden twist in an unexpected direction; a blend of hops that add a light, balancing citrusy twist and a subtle spiciness. Alice Porter is the first of our 2105 seasonal brews.

Nice cheeky porter. Rich colour and smell. Not as coffee as many similar beers which is a good thing in my opinion. has a slightly novel vibe to it but the quality ans taste makes up for this. nice wee darky.

Dark brown and ruby tinged, this beauty is topped with a finger of rusty brown head.

Smells of chocolate, rust, chocolate mousse, and snow.

Chocolate, tar, tobacco, rust. Very little bitterness. Any citrusy hops I only found after reading the suggestion. Yes, they are there if you aerate it like wine.

Thin body, moderate carbonation.

Feels like a light and easy drinking porter. Got from Bangkok, drank in Chiang Mai January 27th, 2016.

Not as faddy as previous beers I have tried. Loved the aroma of coffee and resiny hops. The initial taste is of a classic porter but the toastiness gradually gets overtaken by a welcoming hop kick. Not really a porter? Who are we to dictate?

Poured in teku glass from a 330 ml bottle. Light brown head that hesitates to last on top of a pitch black black liquid. The aroma is not very assertive but nonetheless pleasant, with chocolates, brown sugars and a very mild hop presence. Quite effervescent on the tongue. The taste is coffee forward, I find, and pretty mono-dimensional. This is leaving a very dry sensation on the tongue that lasts for quite some time. Pretty light-bodied beer with, considerably carbonated, at least for this style, and maybe unbalanced with the hops. I am getting them more and more while smelling the beer on and on during drinking. Might be my personal bias, but
I don't like them very much in a porter. During drinking all aromas seem to fade away. Overall this is a decent beer but not the sturdiest porters of all, lacking a bit of personality. I will not buy it again.
