Collaboration Brew #4
Brew Date: 26 October 2012
ABV% 6.1, 19 IBUs
The latest "Collaboration Brew For A Good Cause" from 16 Mile Brewery. A rich, smooth porter derived from English brown and crystal malts. As you lift your glass, your nose is welcomed by the subtle warming aroma of maple... and then enter the fresh blueberries we crushed at the brewery - they arrive midway down your palate with twinges of sour and tartness... you are now properly prepared for the next pull. As this ’made-for-chilly- weather’ brew warms your glass, the aroma and flavors will be released more and more - patience properly rewarded. Celebrate the small victories, enjoy and make memories with friends. From yours at 16 Mile... Cheers
