Emelisse’s ’normal’ porter. I typically like the straightforward beers of craft brewers better than all those specials and one offs. I mean what’s not to like about a solid rich tasting porter? This confirms that feeling, with its mocha malts and herbal hop profile. Full and rounded body yet not too thick and pleasantly moderate in alcohol. Nice dry developed. Really well made, solid base. No wonder this brewer can also make his specials and one offs taste amazing. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)
