Not a common style of beer by any means, in fact this style of Porter is a Bottom fermented lager rather than an ale. Traditional brewed in Northern Europe, this lager had to be strong to keep all the hearty northern souls warm. Again keep in mind this beer is brewed by Trinity and any beer we do seems to have an added twist. The twist in this seasonal is a choice to age the beer on some rare Mexican wood known as Cauchalalate. This wood imparts a certain dryness accompanied by chocolate and coffee flavors. We think itís the perfect match for the style, and we know you will agree! 8.5% ABV

onceblind (4965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2012
At 2012 Avery Strong Ale Fest. Dark dark brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma has some brown malts and chocolaty esters with a light pale malt undertone. Taste is sweet with toffee and roasted caramalt tones, with some earthiness, not much bitterness or hop presence but it isnít cloying. Just a dusty brown ale, lacking body.

On tap at Trinity poured a hazy brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of cocoa, carmel, light vanilla, light roastiness and a hint of smoke. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of milk chocolate, carmel, coffee and light roastiness with a smooth lingering chocolatey finish.
