COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big, Bold, and Black. This unusual lager style has many similarities to Imperial Stouts. A lengthy conditioning period creates a silky smooth chocolatey mouth feel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness. At 10% alcohol by volume, this beer is sure to keep you warm on a cold winter night.

Partial to this brewery as I was born in Framingham so Framinghammer was a fun find. Not many porters to my liking, but this one is delicious! Pretty in the glass, head lovely goes great with Beethoven’s 9th. Look forward to trying it at the brewpub which I Love!!

Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Tuckaway Tavern and Butchery. Appearance is almost opaque black--very dark brown with red with light source directly behind--with light sparkle at the edge of the glass, cascading effervescence like a nitro beer on initial pour, 3-finger width foamy light brown head with fair retention and fair soapy lacing. Aroma is rich roasted malts with coffee, dark chocolate and licorice. Taste is strong roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and dark fruits--very imperial stout-like as described. Palate is full bodied with smooth, creamy texture, soft carbonation and finish as taste with dryness representative of the style. Overall, this is one helluva beer.

Black pour, obviously. No highlights at all. Creamy tan head. Not a ton of aroma. Light nutty and sweet. Sweet and smooth up front. Strong roasts dryness in the back. Alcohol warming is serious at times. Cocoa and a slight vinious note in the back. Absolutely smooth as silk. Intense yet delicate. Impressive.

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a medium/large head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts with malts, caramel and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The amount of roasted malts is insane, this is simply an Imperial Stout. We had a sweet one and an almost smoked one, together creating a perfect balance (once again).

Darkest brown in color with a ring of tan foam. Baker’s chocolate , roast, and a faint sugar sweetness. Flavor is similar but better - so very balanced with delicious chocolate and roast malt dominating but never dry or acidic. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel and very smooth finish. Well done.
