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

reebtogi (5731) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2016
375ml bottle pours almost black in color with a finger of light brown head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark chocolate and light roasted grains with hints of coffee and raisins. Taste is a light roasted grain and mild hop bitterness with a raisin and dark chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Pleases the palate nicely. Overall, a porter that is nicely balanced and quite tasty.

Pour on tap at Black Bottle, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, some sweet sugary caramel and brown sugar with a hint of earth, spice, touch of wood. Taste was a mix of cocoa, roast, coffee, dark chocolate, milk chocolatey notes into a bit of slight dark fruit, wood, spice, finishing slightly sweet.

onceblind (7469) - 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.
