🎵Hey Porter! Hey Porter! Please get my bags for me. I need nobody to tell me now that we’re in Tennessee.🎵 – Johnny Cash
Salty… Beer… I don’t know man. I dislike Gose, which is super salty, so I don’t know how this is going to turn out. I’m pensive. Will it be as salty as I get when I face a PRO GENJI? Or any Mei? Will it be as salty as the far left was during the stop Harper campaign? The salt is heavy on the political left side. Note that I am right. As in correct.
I haven’t tried any of Field House’s brews yet, but through word of mouth it has come to my attention that they can do no wrong. They are the new blockstar, aiming for the Four Winds’ title of ‘Best in BC’. I’LL BE THE JUDGE OF THAT! That’s what I do, judge things. Sometimes unfairly, but fuck you, it’s my blog and I’ll opine if I want to! FUCK U2 AND BONO WITH A RUSTY CACTUS!
The pour is a midnight black with a slight mahogany glow when back-lit. Has a finger of very fine light brown foam and some decent curtain lacing.
The smells are rich salted chocolate, liquorice nibs, herbal burst and a light sweet caramel backdrop. Mostly chocolate and liquorice. Very nice.
The tastes are mild and complex. Rich chocolate, liquorice nibs, caramel, salt, roasted marshmallow, herbal smash, and vanilla bean. Ohhhhh yeahhhhh! I don’t know why salty chocolate liquorice works but, it does somehow.
The mouthfeel is silky and on the heavier side, but still very drinkable. The flavors stick and slide around the palate leaving a wonderful chocolate and liquorice aftertaste. Has light ticking carbonation, a la stouts.
4.5/5 Hoo boy! This is an incredible porter that needs to be tried to be believed. I don’t think this is an everyday type of beer but it will sit among my favorite porters, easily. Like heavier, smooth beers? Get your hands on this.
