BEER INFO

Brewed by:
BrewDog
Scotland, United Kingdom
brewdog.com

Style: Baltic Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Pours a deep black color and a very weak tan head that immediately settles down to a small lacing. The aroma is slightly roasted along with some fruity smell, later I could also smell some caramel. The taste is bitter with some coffee in the back - there's really not much there, too bad. It's drinkable, although feels slightly stale, but not exactly what I expect from BrewDog.

Very dark brown, with a caramel colored head that disappears quckly but really leaves some lacing behin. Lots of tiny bubbles. Beautiful.

Smell: hops, brown sugar, chocolate, coffee, grapefruit peel.

Taste: bitter at first, with a big undercurrent of slighty burned cookies. Some blackberries, a touch of grass, then some heavier notes, coffee and liquorice. Big citrus (grapefruit). Aftertase is bitter and has that lovely burned note. .

Mouth: medium, nice carbonation. Very very dry, really stays in the front of the mouth.

Overall: hmm, very fresh and hoppy, with is unexpected but actually works well. But you'd have to like hoppy/fruity beers. Very interesting and enjoyable.
