Spiteful Brewing
Illinois, United States

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!

Much too hop forward for my taste. Not what I look for in a porter.

16oz can poured into a teku. The can states that this batch features simcoe hops and wow they didnt skimp on their usage. The smell is all hops: dank, herbal, catty, citrus and fruity/rindy. There is hardly any noticeable roast or porter qualities to be found. By all means this is pretty much a black ipa. Even the flavor is all hops. Its bitter with rindy resin, pith, pulp and herbs. Not a bad beer but really not something id call a porter.
