Yeastie Boys Pot Kettle Black (6%)

Pot Kettle BlackArguably a Black IPA, for my money this is more of a hoppy Porter.
What’s the difference, you ask?
For me, and this is purely subjective, this is a hoppy Porter because of its dry, thick, sandy biscuit and treacle malt that fills your mouth.
All the stuff you want to find in a Porter is here, espresso and burned toast, toffee prunes and honey.
There’s a big hop presence too, with lots of grapefruit and nettles, tea leaves, tobacco and tamarind.
The finish is rich and round and thick with smoky wood resin, coffee and plum compote.
Yes, for me this is a hoppy Porter rather than a Black IPA, but regardless of what you want to call it, this is a superb bottle of beer.
