José Martí American PorterJosé Martí American Porter

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Dark brown with a reddish surface hue. Minimal carbonation.

Dark roast coffee, chocolate, and piney and earth hop aromas.

True to word, it's a hoppy porter. The chocolate and roast are the dominating flavors with a hefty dose of pine. The finish is a brown leafy taste.

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium with good carbonation. It's just a little chalky.

It's a very nice hoppy porter. The hops didn't overtake the roast characteristics and it is still recognizable as a porter.
