COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A stout-ish porter with a touch of porter-ish stout. Accepting the fact that we live in confusing times, Greenbush offers up itís own "ball of confusion," with Distorter - a robust porter blurring the lines between a porter and a stout. Have a bottle or get therapy.

Grain: Maris Otter, Crystal 60L, British Chocolate, Black Malt, Roasted Barley Hops: East Kent Goldings, Willamette, Cascade Yeast: British-style Ale yeast

Bottle. Pours very dark brown with medium tan head. Smells of chocolate, coffee, and toffee. Medium body and medium-high carbonation. Sweet up front but quickly followed by an almost smoky bitterness. Nice balance of malt and hop flavors.

arminjewell (7271) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with lacing caramel head, aroma brought brownie, dark chocolate, coffee, hints of slight bitter spicy hops, slight cocoa powder, nice. Taste is a mix of dark cocoa, roast and coffee, some spicy and earthy tones, hints of brownie batter, finishing sweet. I dig this, nice mix of roast and sweetness, and unfortunate ashy flavor comes through at the end however.
