BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Six Row Brewing Company
Missouri, United States

Style: English Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Strong Porter

Dark, malty, chocolaty, great hop aroma; all can be said of Six Row's Strong Porter. Strong because of the increased alcohol content, hop bitterness and aroma. The Strong Porter was brewed with authentic English malt alongside Black and Chocolate malt to add complexity. The deepness of the malt is complimented by East Kent Goldings and Fuggle hops to balance the slight sweetness typical of traditional English Porters.

Bottle received in trade from gregwilsonstl, thanks for the opportunity!
Huge pop when the cap came off and massive tan bubbles fill up the glass as I pour. Roasty light cocoa on the nose when the bubbles finally subside. Hints of tart cherry and ash add to the flavor. some infection starting here, not horrible yet, but it will be.

Roasty, Bitter, Creamy, Smooth

Sticking true to the English Porter style with a pretty robust roasted grainy character yet the body is a bit fluffy and ends up being quite the quaff. Very well balanced. Chocolatey, mild chicory, & toasted bread. Sip after sip it grows on us.

STYLE: English Porter | ABV: 5.2% | AVAILABILITY: Year-round

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives pitch black, with a foamy tan head capping the liquid and leaving plenty of lacing action behind

Smell: Chocalately and roasty, with a hint of earthy hop

Taste: Chocolate and black bread, up front, with a bit of earthy hop character arriving in the middle; the finish contains plenty of roast to offset the hop bill

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very nice robust porter that is a bit of a cross between the American and English styles
