Just like you, but different
“Such was the popularity of porter in old England that legend has it townsfolk drowned when vats at a local brewery burst, flooding the streets. The Three Boys recreate this legendary beer, balancing toasted malts to give a rich, complex flavour. Fuggles hops maintain tradition while select New Zealand hops add spiciness that carries this beer into the new world” it says……
So… a 500ml of 5.3% ABV Porter, delivered in the magnificent way that 3 boys is, all the same, all different. Love it.
Straight up then the aroma is roasty toasty… Pours like a champion, head and all, dark and inviting, get in! It really is generous with a deep maltiness on the nose, I’m scared to drink it lest I be let down again.
Oh no, wait, that’s quite nice. Ir’s chocolate, nutty, a bit deep, a bit shallow, like a white knight to the rescue on an otherwise average night in. There’s a lot of things all doing their thing with this. The problem now is that I’m drinking this as a beer to drink not actually thinking about what I’m tasting. I’d like to linger over why it’s making a tap dance on the tongue. This is, at the end of a long day, a bit of the good thing. Not love, but a deep affection.
You know the worse thing? I only brought the one. The pdubyah-o-meter loves this at 9 from 10. That’s a big number based on the last few beers that I had, and I think today, now, this beer, it’s deserving.
I following a friend around the beer tastes, I feel like it’s a competition and I have a deep respect for Dan, he knows who he is, and I think he likes a Porter. Well I can’t recall a better porter, but then I’m a beginner, and if this is the bar then there is a big treat somewhere ahead. Start here and follow the yellow brick road…. or the three boys… charge………
and yes I remembered that there was a Mocha Porter, this is all that and the glitter.
