Phat Matt's Brewing Company Porter Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Phat Matt's Brewing Company Porter Ale.
Commercial description: “At 7% ABV and 64 IBU’s the late hop additions contribute floral and pine aroma’s that make this Matt’s personal favorite. The hop profile is not overpowering, starting crisp and fresh and building to a mellow, bitter finish. A generous dry hop emphasizes a green hop accent with an enjoyable aroma.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours dark brown with a thin beige head and spotty lacing.
Aroma: Roasted and chocolate malts with a noticeable pine hop aroma.
Taste: Toasted malts, pine, slight chocolate malt presence and a touch sweet with a lingering bitter chocolate aftertaste.
Overall: Phat Matt's Brewing Company Porter Ale is creamy and nice. This 7% ABV offering is worth a try and although it didn’t blow me away it was worth drinking and reviewing.
