We’ve been lucky here in Christchurch with the seasonal offerings of dark beers in abundance. This is a healthy addition and initially appears, smells and tastes like a typical to style porter. Tasted off handpull at Volstead, appears dark in colour with a good collar of mocha head. The nose is of darker roasty malts and the first flush of flavours is just that as well. As you get used to this and begin to wonder where the New York part of things comes in, the beer undergoes a subtle transformation with grapefruit hoppiness beginning to shine through. For something that seems like an incongruous character, it is done very well. It just belongs there and makes the beer longer finishing than it otherwise would have been. A good go-to porter this one.
