A great porter just feels right in your hand. And carrying a glass of Portage Porter , our spring seasonal beer , is no different. An opaque, brown pour, this beer presents with coffee and chocolate aromas, with hints of toast and smoked almonds. The taste follows suit, adding an upfront sweetness and a slight, roasty bitterness to back it up. Creamy and wonderful, this porter sips a medium body and finishes dry and delightful. Portage Porter carts itself towards perfection. Just tip your glass and keep smiling. Available January 2015.
Opaque black with walnut undertones. Minimal dark tan foam.
Strong roasted and burnt aromas, foremost coffee, with black malt and bittersweet chocolate. Smokiness wends its way though, and there's a slight herbal note of black tea leaves and noble hops. Sweet vanilla and faint dark fruit like dates or plums balance the roasted smokiness.
Vanilla sweetness gives way to a slight sourness and balanced acrid malt bitterness.
Pleasant coating with a medium-full body. Roasted malt lends astringency in the finish. Medium-full body.
