Hale’s Troll Porter

CIMG3567

Named after the Fremont Troll, this porter features Pale, Carastan, Caramel, Chocolate, Black and roasted malts with Nugget and Mt. Hood hops.

Stats:
American Porter. 7.0% ABV. Washington.

Dark chocolate brown color, not a whole lot of head.

The nose has lots of chocolate and some coffee. It’s Starbucks-y, and I’m actually getting a little bit of a cola thing.

Body is good, but the carbonation is a tiny bit high.

Lots of roast barley, vanilla, coffee, honey, chocolate, and anise. Lots of flavor here, it also has a maple thing going on as well. Imagine a maple mocha, mmm.

Pretty decent porter, but the roasted barley is a little too strong making this beer slightly off-balanced and bitter, but this is worth a try! 88 points.

    The only beer I really enjoy is Guinness when I am in England, Scotland or Ireland. The reason is very simple, they do not put additives in their beer as we do in the states. Today I had a Porter for lunch and found it excellent, the best American beer I have ever had. As a side note I am a fourth generation Texan that really does not like American beer, except for the porter.

      I’m not sure what additives you are referring to?
