Notes: Pop Art is a Robust Porter brewed with a plethora of chocolate and roasted malts, caramel malt, and Kuromitsu. Kuromitsu - or black honey - is a very dark sugar syrup made from Japanese unrefined Okinawan kurozato. It is similar to molasses, but with a milder, more subtle taste. Pop Art pours a beautiful clean black color in the glass and tastes like chocolate, fudge, subtle molasses, and gently bitter dark malts. It is a robust porter through and through, with intense yet rewarding flavors. Enjoy!

TREE HOUSE POP ART ROBUST PORTER 1/17/19

Acquired at the brewery 1/15/20. Canned 1/3. Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Samuel Smith English tulip.

a: Opaque dark brown with an inch thick tan head which receded to even surface foam and spotty lacing.

s: Dark chocolate and strong black coffee.

t: Chocolate and roast malt char, moderate hop bite on the sweetish finish.

m: Medium, good body and carbonation tingle.

o: A fine, tasty porter, with a balance of chocolate and roasty malt notes, seemingly Americanized with extra hops leading to some bitterness throughout which the Japanese molasses did not entirely smooth out. Still far better than the majority of today's porters.

Thanks to rudzud
Pours a smaller fizzy dark vhead with lower retention, very dark brown colour, light legs

Nose brings plenty of roasted malt and coffee, typical tree house porter, toasted roasted malt with little molasses and touch of honey like, fair sweetness, little fudge brownie, but fairly bland and average

Taste brings more typical tree house porter, fair roast and coffee, a touch nutty, fudge brownie, fair molasses and a little dark honey, fruity coffee, fair bitterness, fudgey and a little cookie dough, but again average

Mouth is medium to fuller bod, lighter carb, little fudgey, low alcohol

Overall eh, just average and very tree house flavors, and for a tree house porter it's meh

Shared with JLindros. At Red Pepper.

A - Poured into a wine glass a nice dark brown almost black with a thin mocha head that fades very quickly to leave light halo. Rather disappointing.

S - Aromas of light roasted malts, chocolate, light roast. Faint fudge. Flashes of sweetness thanks to that black honey, but the aroma is pretty run of the mill.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with nice toasty roast and char, great big chalky dark chocolate, molasses like sweetness. The finish is slightly bitter.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, little creamy, alcohol hidden well.

O - Overall this was a solid enough porter, however, it doesn't really wow. The roast and chocolate are nice, but, they're really isn't much going on here. Wouldn't buy it again.

Serving Type: can
