Brown Porter Tasting

Standard

Brown Porter

Here is a tasting for my brown porter.  The other keg that I made of this beer was aged with  coconut.  Can’t wait to compare!

Appearance: Thick and Chocolate colored, and cloudy.  I’m really glad I finally bought a bunch more irish moss

Nose:  Hoppy nose that smells like goldings, which makes sense, cuz I used a bunch

Taste:  The beginning of the taste is an assertive Goldings bitterness.  It quickly turns into a malty chocolate flavor.  The end has a hoppy bitterness

Mouthfeel: Very smooth with a slight chalky aspect

Overall: Cut down on the 60 min hop addition or let this beer age another month next time.  Outside of that, a very delicious beer.  7.2 out of 10

  1. Coconut Porter, one of the few specialty/fruit/spice beers I really enjoy. Seems like it is a mini trend that is catching on.
