USA | Porter | 5.20%
Deschutes Brewery hales from Oregon USA, the spiritual home of the craft beer movement and they have produced one fine example of a porter. At 5.2% it behaves like a much bigger beer, so full, well rounded and balanced. You will find it hard to source a better example of the style. The aroma is all maple syrup, toffee and a hint of chocolate. The carbonation is minimal so it feels like it covers your whole mouth. The flavours carry roasted malts, some preserved fig and a small aftertaste of coffee. Kick back and enjoy this one.
