Indie Alehouse-Breakfast Porter
The Breakfast Porter sports only a very mild scent. There is a slight nutmeg smell that, while seemingly out of place, is quite enjoyable. The flavour has a nuttiness that augments the typical the typical porter molasses taste. There is a relatively thin mouthfeel. The aftertaste is also nutty and surprisingly brief.
While this beer is styled a porter, it tasted to me more like a hybrid: a mix between porter and bitter. It wasn't my favourite beer ever, but I've got to hand it to the Indie Alehouse for producing an innovative and unconventional brew. The Breakfast Porter is unlike any dark beer I have ever sampled, and that is worth something.
Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
