We’re finally getting into the Summer, so this beer is a memory of seasons past, with lots of blankets and sweaters. Let’s see how it was.
Style: American Porter
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Cypress Brewing is a 20 BBL micro brewery located in Edison, NJ. We take great pride in our brews and have spent nearly two decades honing our craft before bringing our product to market. We hope you’ll stop by our brewery for a tour of our facility and to check our beers on tap in our tasting room. Our lineup constantly changes, so check back often!”
Random: I still haven’t made it to the brewery yet. Next time I’m in Edison, I’ll have to stop.
The beer poured with a half a finger of tan head. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a dark brown color with no visible carbonation due to the color. The nose started with coconut and quickly went into a touch of oak and wood chips. Chocolate was present as well. The taste had a sweetness to it that I wasn’t a huge fan of. Chocolate and coconut came through next. There was a slight coffee bitterness at the end of the sip. The body was on the medium side with really light carbonation. The finish was quick with some coconut and sweetness. This wasn’t my favorite porter and the sweetness would make it difficult to have more than one.
