Just like you, but different
Coffee Porter. Well that’s new. I’ve recently pondered over additions to Stout, and so a Coffee Porter should not surprise me, but it does.
I like the way that this has a black lid on the can, for no reason really other than it looks great against the white rest of the can.
There’s not as much coffee aroma on the opening as you’d think.
The pour is light coffee was you watch but it settles much darker brown, not quite coffee black though. The excitable head calms down thankfully, I have enough commentary about by pour skills.
I don’t get a log of that coffee aroma in the glass. I am sure it’s there though. Its just not as announced.
There is in fact a really nice level of coffee in this, it’s quite low but deep and it makes you tilt your head as if it’s a complete surprise, and you can’t quite believe it.
It could be more robust though, this is a little light on what you might expect from a porter which is a little more aggressive, there’s next to no bitterness where a tad might be nice, and it really could do with a bit more of that roasted element to bring this together.
The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7 on the arbitrary number scale. It’s particularly easy drinking and without drama, which is both the strength and the weakness in this, I’m quaffing like a parched man, and I’m also thinking that this could be more robust and fuller.
BADBADNOTGOOD – and an album IV – Spotify throws up the odd good one.
Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.Philip himself.
Now drop yourself, with no concern onto an overload of toasted creamy coconut and a megaquake of Peru Natural from Wellington’s beloved Peoples Coffee. Suffuse your palette and expand your mind on this caffeine fuelled force of nature. Improve your day now, cause you might not sleep tonightBrewers Notes
The Flavored Porter is a substantial, malty dark beer with a complex and flavorful dark malt character with a restrained bitterness and with a clear flavoring element. It may have a range of roasted flavors, generally without burnt qualities, and often has a chocolate-caramel-malty profile. It also feature an harmonious marriage of the additive and beer, but still recognizable as a beer. The additive character should be evident but in balance with the beer. (For example: fruits, spices, herbs, vegetables, coffee, honey, chocolate, maple sirup, chilies, nuts, vanilla, liquor – BUT not including Smoked malt, barrel-aging or a Sour element resulting from the brewing process)
