Brooklyn Cookie Jar Porter
On my last trip to New York, I made it a point to track down Brooklyn Cookie Jar Porter. The beer has a dark black color with a very thin filmy head. The aroma is filled with chocolate and oatmeal. The taste is very sweet and bitter chocolate at first. The beer then finishes with morsel-like chocolate flavor. The transition in this beer goes from light dry chocolate to dark sweet chocolate. The alcohol content is 7.8% ABV. I thought that the Cookie Jar Porter was a great chocolate-oatmeal porter and definitely had cookie/dessert characters. If you have the chance to sample this before it is gone, do not pass up the chance.
