Forgotten Boardwalk Morro Castle

Posted: March 20, 2016 in American Porter, Forgotten Boardwalk Brewing, Reviews

Two days in a row, two New Jersey porters. This is another one that I had already (in a flight at the brewery) but haven’t formally reviewed. I know that you shouldn’t judge a beer by its can art, but I love Forgotten Boardwalk’s labels. They are some of the most unusual that I’ve seen in beer. Their can glasses are really cool, which explains why I have two on my bar. Now that I’m done waxing poetic, let’s talk about the beer.

ABV: 5.7%

Style: American Porter

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Malty backbone with a rising moke finish.”

Random: The brewery says that this can be paired with bratwurst and carne asada.

This beer poured with a one finger, light brown head. It dissipated slowly and left no lacing on the glass. It left a slight crown on top of a dark brown body. Because of the color, there was no visible carbonation. The nose had roasted malts and licorice. Milk chocolate came through as well. It didn’t have as much smoke as I was expecting. The taste had more chocolate than anything. It provided some sweetness, but was balanced with slight bitterness. There wasn’t much smoke to it, or a huge amount of depth. The body was a bit too thin with light carbonation. It had a swift finish with the same milk chocolate. A can of this set me back $1.67, which was $.14 per ounce. This beer wasn’t bad by any means, but after having two porters in a row, this wasn’t my favorite one.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
