Day 1 of the 24 Day’s of Craft Beer Christmas
Today we have a Maple Porter by Nickel Brook Brewing
My first impression is that it is very over carbonated. I had a very slow angled pour but it was bubbling like I have never seen a beer bubble before. But none the less it is quite amazing, it has a chocolate, nutty and smokey aroma with a sweet side too it. Once you take a sip it… just commands attention of your full taste pallet you can expect with a good Porter. The smokey, and the roasty full bodied flavour is quite creamy and smooth with a notable bitter note but nothing out of sorts for this style.
Very enjoyable start to the end of the day and I would definitely buy this beer again.
Cheers to Nickel Brook Brewing, and I can’t wait to see what is in store for tomorrow from The Craft BeerAdvent Calendar for day 2!
