BUTTE CREEK ORGANIC PORTER 8/31/16

Last of the four new in the latest beer shipment assortment. We do not get this west coast brewery's products in my state.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams English nonick.

a: Clear dark ruby with an inch thick offwhite head which receded tro thin surface foam and patchy lacing.

s: Mild black coffee.

t; Dark roasty malt up front with a moderate hop bite. Mild black coffee in the finish.

m; Light to medium, ok body with a few watery notes, also light to medium carbonation tingle.

o: Lightweight even for a porter, but decent enough for a dinner or warmish weather beverage. Rather too bitter and underflavored to be more.

Dark brown with almost no lacing. Very weak nose of light malt, some toffee and grains. And you really have to sniff hard for it. Taste is more noticeable; consisting of roasted barley, some coffee and chocolate. Very thin,watery body. The flavor is there, but could use a little more character.

A: The beer is black when viewed from afar but when held to a bright light it is very dark brown in color. It poured with a short beige head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and a thick collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of dark malts and cola are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of dark malts and cola along with hints of chocolate and slight bits of caramel. Little if any bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied and slightly smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer might seem to be a little lighter in body compared to other porters, but it is quite flavorful and goes down very easily.

Serving type: bottle
