muzzlehatch (4942) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served at cellar temp from a Fitgers pint glass. Ive already had more than enough this evening - too much for any night but Saturday - but I cant finish without trying another OSo, since the last one was so AMAZING...here goes nothing: like the majestic and incredible Hop Whoopin IPA I had earlier, this pours out a huge and quite stable head (light tan in this case) that dissipates very slowly, with this beer topping a dark translucent walnut body...nose of roasted pecans, a hint of crme brulee and chocolate, loads of toasty malts, little sweetness, very impressive though it could be a bit stronger...on the tongue, just as with the IPA an exquisite initial sweetness (in this case candy-like as opposed to fruity - but again very real and with no hint of adjuncts or anything artificial) leads eventually through very bitter chocolate and light port wine characteristics to a fairly dry, herb-enhanced, long and powerful finish. Malts are throughout dominant, minimal hop appearance, and a near-perfect balance between toasty bitterness and a brown sugared-sweetness. As with the IPA the mouthfeel is exceptional, and this is a rare porter that Ive had in recent years that doesnt have even a hint of anything cardboard or stale in the body. Before tonight Id just had their mediocre golden ale and figured they might be just another also-ran that saved their best work for the 750s of sour ales; now Im starting to wonder if Ive found a new brewery to add to my mental favorites list. Goso!
