Porter Report

Here’s a round up of some Porters i’ve tried recently…

Porter Report

Outstanding amongst them was the Stone Smoked Porter 5.9%, a sensational blend of bournville dark chocolate, espresso coffee and American hops. After a bottle of this, nothing that followed tasted quite right. My taste buds needed a factory reset.

Another fantastic beer was the Mighty Hop Black Pearl Porter. There’s a smooth chocolate taste, somewhere between dark and milk chocolate, a faint roasted aroma and a bitter hop aftertaste. It’s simply one of the most enjoyable porters i’ve tried and is very drinkable at 4.5%. I was lucky enough to have a case brought back for me from Bridport in Dorset, along with several other Mighty Hop beers.

Norfolk Square PrideThe Winklepicker, named ‘Real Ale in a Bottle’ beer of the year by Norfolk and Norwich Camra, is worth mentioning as it comes from the Norfolk Square Brewery, whose 4.2% ‘Pride’ pale ale was the best thing to come out of England’s World Cup 2010 debacle. I picked up my Winklepicker from the Wine Warehouse in Dereham Road, Norwich.
