Beer #15 – Southern Tier Porter

I’ve mentioned before the fine selection of craft breweries that we’ve got here in New York State.  One of my favorites is Southern Tier.  They made a very solid double IPA and have some other good brews in their arsenal.  I was at the beer store the other day and was in a dark mood so I picked up several browns, porters, and dark lagers.  One of those was a dark and robust porter by Southern Tier.  Here it is everyone.

Porter, Southern Tier Brewing Company
New York, United States of A
Robust Porter,5.8 % ABV

Aroma: Faint scents of hops, then earthy and roasty coffee malt notes.

Appearance: Very dark brown, small head of foam.

Flavor: Malts and slight citrus hops followed by a nice bitter coffee flavor with a semi-sweet finish.

Mouthfeel: Very full bodied, hint of graininess, thick character, almost like cocoa powder.

Overall: This is a pretty nice porter.  It has a decent hop profile, a unique mouthfeel and nice coffee notes.  A solid effort from Southern Tier.
