BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trillium Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States
trilliumbrewing.com

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our signature porter, brewed with oats, has a soft, velvety mouthfeel with layers of chocolate and roasted malt on the palate. The ominously black appearance belies this porter's approachability; Pot & Kettle is satisfyingly smooth and nourishing, but never lumbering or heavy. While not sweet, dark fruit notes, such as cherries, dates, and raisins, reveal themselves as the beer warms.

MALT: American 2-row, Rolled Oats, Pale Chocolate, Black (Patent), Carafa III, Caramunich, C-120, C-80

HOPS: Columbus

16oz can poured into a snifter

A- pours deep brown in color with a one-finger foamy khaki colored head that reduces to a ring around the edge of the glass

S- roasted and charred malt on the nose with undertones of chocolate, vanilla cream, caramel and light undertones of dark fruit

T- dark roasted malt gives way to rich notes of milk chocolate and caramel up front, mid-palate gives notes of sweet caramel whipping cream and light herbal coffee. The finish is sweet, roasted and malty, with lingers of chocolate, dark fruit & caramel

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a silky finish

O- in terms of a straight up porter, this is spot on. Great drinkability and well balanced

Well executed and impressed with integration of coffee with malt flavor. Great body, not too heavy not too thin. Would enjoy a slightly lower abv, but that is nit picking

Appearance - pours about a finger of tan head, sticky lacing that slowly rolls down the glass. Deep, opaque brown, milk chocolate against the edges of the glass when lit up.

Smell - strong aroma of cocoa powder and spent coffee grounds.

Taste - flashed oat, cocoa powder, and dark chocolate. Not much sweetness, but some residual raisin notes as this warms up. Coffee, obviously, which leaves a subtle bitterness.

Mouth feel - smooth and full bodied, biting carbonation.

Overall -  pretty solid porter, I'd have to agree that it doesn't sit heavy on the stomach, which is my usual issue with the style. This one is very drinkable and not too sweet.

Perhaps a little too heavy on coffee but still a really nice porter/stout.
