Full City Coffee Porter
Opaque and black, Full City Coffee Porter pours with a dense tan head. At 5.5%, this London, Ontario ale comes in 500mL bottles. It's brewed by Forked River Brewing Company.
This dark ale has a gorgeous java aroma, built atop a sweet, malty foundation. Similarly lovely is its velvety smooth mouthfeel. The flavour is fine, too, though not quite as rich as the nose. It's got a hearty dose of slightly bitter coffee, as well as loads of malt.
Nice beer, good strength, with serious coffee elements, Full City is a quality coffee porter. I'd have liked to have gotten some details about the provenance of the coffee, though. Seems like a missed opportunity.
Rating: 8.0 out of 10.
