BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cigar City Brewing
Florida, United States

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is a heavily hopped high gravity porter featuring the hopping levels of an India Pale Ale with the rich and roasty malt profile of a robust porter. Heavy hop rates, while uncommon in today's porters were not unknown historically and recipes from the British porter producers of the 1800's evidence hopping rates far in excess of what is common for the style today.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Acquired in a trade

A- pours a deep brown translucent body with a 2 finger off white head the reduces slowly to frothy foam.

S - molasses, toffee, heavy bread and pine, resin, slight roasted coffee. Very aromatic

T- starts off with toffee, fresh coffee, the follow through is pretty hoppy with resin and pine, the finish is roasty malt, biscuity, and toasty.

M- medium body and carbonation

Overall a nicely crafted porter. I'd put it more in the black IPA category.
