BEER INFO

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 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into wine glass.

Appearance: Very dark chocolate with moderate tan head.

Smell: Heavily roasted aroma with chocolate and coffee. Some bitter notes, with a hint of citrus.

Taste: Strong roasted backbone, with chocolate, coffee, char and burnt molasses. The hops are a mix of citrusy, floral and spicy notes. Finish is somewhat bitter, partially from the hops, but mostly from the slightly distracting burnt character.

Feel: Medium to full body that is fairly creamy with a nice dry finish. Carbonation is in check.

Overall: This is more-than-solid hoppy strong porter. Too bad the burnt notes take away from the hops and the core complexity of the roasted malts.
