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 dark brown and sits black in the glass with a surprising amount of brown foam, about two fingers.

Citrus, hop resin, roasty, and chocolate notes.

Bitter, but citrus and pine dominant hop bitterness, roasted malt, chocolate, and a little burnt flavor as well.

Medium-heavy bodied, medium carbonation, resinous, dank, and roasty.

Overall, a damn fine porter.

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

Resiny, dank, roasty, chocolatey and piney aroma.

Flavor is dank and resin dominant, citrusy, roasty, with dark cocoa highlights. That chocolate really lingers.
