What the brewer says

“Ruddy brown in color, a bit­ter­sweet bal­ance of malt and hops with a light cream fin­ish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Some dark malt char­ac­ter with hints of caramel, cof­fee, red ap­ple, and smoke.” Fla­vor: “Big fla­vors with toast, rich malt, and piney hops. Red Life­savers candy. Spruce tips. Mod­er­ate sweet­ness and bit­ter­ness. Full body. Well-at­ten­u­ated, so it’s not overly heavy or sweet. As it warms up, com­plex­ity presents it­self, and the choco­late starts to ri­val the roast and cof­fee.” Over­all: “Ex­cel­lent ro­bust porter. Lots of big fla­vors and aro­mas. Full body. Like a com­fort beer. In­stead of hot co­coa, I want to have this in my pa­ja­mas in front of a wood fire while a snow­storm rages out­side. The hops re­ally tie it all to­gether nicely.”
