Marble Brewery American Porter (5.8%)

American PorterBrewed in collaboration with Against The Grain Brewery of Kentucky, this is a hoppy Porter.
A hoppy Porter?
A Black IPA?
Cascadian Dark Ale?
Call it what you will, this is a delicious bottle of pitch black beer that smells of coffee and toffee, treacle and jam.
The malts are burned toast dry, thick with treacle tart, honey, espresso and prunes, and there’s a very nice sharp and crunchy bitter dry leafiness from the hops, a little orange rind and a splash of peach juice.
All this makes for a beer that feels rich and silky and then suddenly hits in with a lip puckeringly dry bitter finish.
Very good indeed.
