Winter doesn’t only bring snow and colder weather…it also brings darker and roastier beers. The color is deep brown with dark amber hues. The aroma is mostly chocolate with hints of sweetness like raisins and molasses (neither has been added). The mouthfeel is creamy at first and dries up in the finish due to the roast and hop bitterness (all English Fuggles). The body comes mostly from generous use of Munich and Crystal malts. The flavor profile is mostly cocoa and roast but as the beer warms you get dark fruits like dried plums and raisins.
34 IBU’s and 4.9% ABV (yes, still in style for a Robust Porter)
This robust porter will also serve as a flavor platform to provide a weekly release of interesting beers including Vanilla Porter, Cherry Porter, Toasted Coconut Porter, Coffee Porter, and Peppermint Porter. Stay tuned to more blogs about these releases.
