COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Olde Bongwater Hemp Porter was named by Kevin Head at The Rhino, a bar in Missoula. He originally wanted the beer as a house beer. It was such a hit, that others started asking for it. Now, you can find it in bars across western Montana. Some have criticized us of glorifying marijuana or giving hemp a bad image. We intend to do neither. Taste it & you’ll agree - it is GOOD!

I’ve had this beer a few times, and it continues to be good. A: pours a dark, nearly black ale with not allowance of light passage until you’re down to the last ounce or two, then it’s a dark maduro color. Single finger, latte head falls in a minute or two and leaves a thin sheet of the same. S: Nutty, malty, coffee hide in here. The hemp oil changes the texture of the nose. Very nice. Some hints of graham, flour. T: Dried coffee grounds, cocoa, hazelnuts; a nice malt baseline and the hemp oil creates the slightest resin flavor. A bit woody. M: Medium to heavy body with medium carbonation. The feel is silky, smooth and the finish is the same slickness. O: My favorite beer coming out of Missoula. Outstanding. If Kettlehouse was really thinking, they would can this rather than some of their others. Serving type: growler 04-15-2011

On nitro at southside taproom. Pours dark chocolate brown with one inch of solid, creamy tan head. Aroma is in your face coffee and malts, hints of hemp oil. Flavor is wonderfully balanced dark roasted malts and hops. Wonderfully smooth mouthfeel, if anything just a little too much lingering sweet for a porter. A solid choice if wanting to check out kettlehouse. --- Mike, Missoula MT
