After, this post, I’m officially caught up with all of my end of quarter backlog. I’m very excited. This was the second beer that I had at brunch today. Let’s see how it was.
Style: American Porter
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “We’ve taken our robust porter and put it together with pumpkin and autumn spices such as ginger and cinnamon to create a rich blend of flavors in this unique beer. This seasonal brew bridges the months between autumn and winter to warm your spirits with deep aroma and a malty finish, and will be a house beer at Fred and Ethel’s Tavern and The Smithville Inn.”
Random: The meow has successfully slept through all of my updates. I think he sleeps more than a koala does.
This brew poured with half a finger of tan head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. What was left was a slight crown on top of a dark brown body with no carbonation visible. The nose had notes of coffee and roasted malts with a touch of pumpkin pie spice. The taste was not what I expected. It was all porter and very little pumpkin pie. There were notes of roasted malts and dark coffee with a touch of nutmeg and allspice, but no real pumpkin to it. It had a decently bitter bite. The body was thick with very prickly carbonation. It had a long finish with dark chocolate bitterness and roasted malts. This was a nice porter, but misses the mark with calling it a pumpkin porter.
