BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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 bomber into tulip. Four fingers of dark khaki head. Dissapates slowly. Smells of roasted malts, dark chocolate, and a sliight hop sweetness. Taste is chocolate and earth. Slight hop presence dissernable behind all that malt. Great finish. Very clean, easy drinking dark brew with great mouthfeel.

Going straight outta the bottle on this brew. Landed as an extra from the generous @rotero24. A strange and different beer, I dig. The hops are big as is the porter, even after over a year. They go head-to-head. Malty, roasty, slightly spicy, rich full hop flavor. Apparently this is how they used to do it back in the 1800s. Unique and yummy.

Had a spikey hoppiness, a thin bodied pour brown colored. This was a little too hoppy/bitter for my taste in terms of porters, but I guess I should have just read the label. Interesting beer, wasn't a big fan of this though
