Firestone Walker Walker’s Reserve Robust Porter

CIMG4910

Here’s a porter from Firestone Walker. This beer features 2-row, Maris Otter, Crystal 77, Crystal 120, DH Carafa, Chocolate, and wheat malts with oat flakes, US Goldings, East Kent Goldings, and Cascade hops. Looks like this beer also touches some oak.

Stats:
American Porter. 5.8% ABV. California.

Nice dark chocolate brown to ruby color with a tan head.

The nose is actually fairly closed but it does have a nice touch of chocolate, banana, and roast.

Mouthfeel is perfect. Nice medium body with a perfect amount of medium carbonation.

Some chocolate and a hint of roast come through here. Just a hint of caramel and coffee. Nice little espresso finish.

Solid beer, but doesn’t blow me away. It just lacks “umph”. 87 points.
