BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Black Forest Brew Haus
New York, United States | website

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Once known as "three threads", porter began as a blend of 3 different beers of varying strength and maturity by the bartender. It wasn't until the 1720's when a brewer Ralph Harwood brewed the first porter in an effort to lighten the workload on English pub owners. Our porter is made in the robust sub-style, characterized by an increased alcohol content from that of a brown porter. Porters tend to highlight chocolate flavors along with a slight burnt/astringent flavor from the addition of chocolate and black malts respectively. Our porter also includes a small percentage of rye malt in the grain bill to add a slight spiciness. The result is a complex beer that goes down easy! A perfect beer to welcome fall and prepare for colder nights.
