First Porter

After a run of IPAs, we decided to brew a porter for a change of pace. Something dark for the few cold months in charleston.   It’s halfway through oct and it’s gone. so much for seasonally appropriate drinking. For a trial run, this was as good as we could have hoped for.  In the glass it’s almost black with a thick brown head. looks like a giant espresso.   It’s lighter on the palate than it looks.   Medium well integrated carbonation, Coffee, Chocolate, balanced with some cascade acidity that comes across on the nose.  A really well balanced porter that you can drink a few of  at 5-6%.
