COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t fight it, SPITE IT! Our God Damn Pigeon Porter was brewed with our friends from across the pind in mind. We use traditional Englush Amber malt, but being the unruly Americans we are, we put our own happy twist on things. One of our favorite hops, Simcoe was added late in the boil. This delightful Porter will take your mind off the everyday nuisances of living in a big city, especially those f-ing pigeons!

650 ml bottle, purchased at Liquor Warehouse, downtown Chicago. Pitch black color with light tan head. Rich dark malt aroma of chocolate, coca powder, hints of vanilla.

Flavor is good balance of roasted chocolate flavors with a mild piney hop kick in the backend. Deep roasted grain body giving medium in feel, light creaminess on the tongue. Simcoe or Cascade hop pine toward the back end of the sip, hop presence is large. Very well constructed Porter... I enjoyed this a lot.

16 ounce can courtesy of AWISLGuy. Thanks! Pours a clear dark brown with a large foamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of intense coffee notes, roast, bitter chocolate, green hops. The taste is big chewy roasted malts, cocoa, chocolate, coffee, caramel, bitter hops. Medium bodied, creamy texture, excellent balance, moderate lingering bitterness. Exceptional porter.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed while listening to some records after a long work week. Appearance is pitch block, moderate consistency with a huge tan head that laces to the glass. Aroma is rich in chocolate and bitter hops, smell is rather dry but potent with a light smoke. Taste is pretty fantastic, huge hazelnut notes mixed with rich chocolate makes it taste nutella-like, comes off as much sweeter than I thought it would. It makes for a nice after work treat. Really enjoying this one a whole lot.

Bottle. The pour is dark. The aroma is malty goodness. The taste is above average, buy not much more than that. A fine drinking porter. Love the name though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
