Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Marshall Brewing Company Big Jamoke Porter. Here’s another beer I picked up from Whiskey Business (here) a Fine Wine, Spirits & Craft Beer shop on my not so recent trip to Tulsa, OK.
From the Marshall Brewing Company website: “Big Jamoke is an American Robust Porter named for the B-25 that Brewmaster Eric Marshall’s grandfather flew in WW II. A blend of five malts from Munich to Chocolate provide a deep mahogany color and aroma of toffee and roasted coffee. On the palate this beer is full-bodied with hints of bittersweet chocolate and toffee… while finishing smooth and dry from the addition of earthy hops. Suggested pairings: Brie or other earthy cheese, ham, barbeque, smoked meats, and any bittersweet chocolate dessert such as espresso flavored lava cake. ABV – 6.8%. IBU – 55.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a very dark brown with a thin cocoa brown head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Roasted and smoky malts, coffee, toffee, chocolate and a touch of fruit sweetness.
Taste: Chocolate, roasted and smoky malts, caramel, coffee, toffee, earthy hops and a hint of dark fruit sweetness.
Overall: Balanced and smooth, Marshall Brewing Company Big Jamoke Porter is probably my favorite of the Marshall Brewing Company beers I brought home from Tulsa. At 6.8% ABV the alcohol is hardly detectable which makes this one good and dangerous.
