Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Out God Damn Pigeon Porter was brewed with our friends from across the pond in mind. We use traditional English Amber malt, but being the unruly Americans we are, we put our own happy twist on things. One of our favorite hops, Simcoe, was added late in the bail. This delightful porter will take your mind off the everyday nuisances of living in a big city, especially those f-ing pigeons!

Pours a clear dark brown color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and good lacing. Smells of maple syrup, coffee, roasted malt, sweet malt, alcohol, slight spicy hops, and yeast. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of maple syrup, coffee, roasted malt, sweet malt, alcohol, slight spicy hops, and yeast. Overall, average appearance, good complexity, blend, and great feel.

Poured from a 16oz can into a DFH chalice

Maroon brown with a mocha head that persists a while and then lingers as a layer across the top and as coating/lacing

Mostly malt and candy sweetness with little hint of hops would describe both the smell and the taste. Maybe a trace of coffee on the back of the mouth?

A thick feel, heavy unctuous Nice

This is great stuff. I have a bottle of the vanilla and have to wonder how it could be better.
