Calling all malt fans! Our version of a classic worker’s beer is a robust porter brewed with caramel, chocolate, and black malts, along with dark molasses for good measure. Also present is a healthy amount of flaked barley to yield a full and pleasant mouthfeel. As for hops, we used Golding and Cascade to compliment the sweetness and lend a slight fruity herbal quality to the beer.
The end result is a delicious ale that pours deep ruby black with a full creamy tan head, best enjoyed after a long satisfying work day. Pleasant notes of light malt sweetness in the aroma play nicely with roasty coffee and chocolate and a hint of toffee. After a first sip, you are greeted with more complex roasted malt flavors, reminiscent of cocoa. Malty caramel sweetness is present throughout and in harmony with the sharp bitterness of black malt.
At Peticolas, it really is just as much about the people as it is the beer. We have come a long way together, and this is our thank you and Standing Ovation to all those friends and family who have supported us through the years. Well done!
