I picked de Molen’s London Porter because of the description: historic recipe developed with the help of the renowned beer historian Ron Pattinson; a one-of-a-kind example of a genuine porter. I’m a fan of porters so how could I resist drinking a historically accurate porter?
|Sorry about the background...|
It poured a deep, dark brown in my glass. It had a coffee aroma that carried through to the flavor. I found it to be have some spice to it. It was also a bit nutty. I’m struggling to describe the way it drank. To say it wasn’t smooth makes it sound bad. But it wasn’t smooth. It had body. It also finished dry. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I really want to put it in my Top 25 but I hesitate because in nine months from now, I’m probably not going to find anymore.
p.s. Someone please tell Google that it is not smarter than I am -- at least on this occasion. I most certainly did not want to look up Rob Pattinson. His pale, pouty man-boy image was most certainly not what I meant.
