|Otter Creek Stovepipe Porter
Quite smooth with a light bitterness that tingles beneath the
surface. Highlights of malt and coffee come into focus at
mid-taste. An inviting nose of flowers and herbs arises as the
brew warms. Dark brown and medium bodied, this porter
finishes a bit on the sweet side.
Overall Rating - above average.
Brewed in Bedford, England this ale has soft, warm vanilla and
caramel malt notes throughout. A gentle bitterness and touch
of spice highlights the background and lead to just the right
level of tartness at the finish. A well balanced brew from the
UK's largest independent brewer.
Overall Rating - good
|Sea Dog Hazelnut Porter
A toasty aroma prepares one for this
brews nutty bittersweet roasted taste.
Hazelnuts mix with coffee notes adding a
light sweetness. The finish finds a
balancing bitterness emerging.
