Dark Horse Thirsty Trout Porter
Dark Horse Thirsty Trout Porter. The beer pours a black color with a thin filmy tan colored head. The aroma consists of chocolate, vanilla, and toasted malts. The taste brings out the toasted malts first with a healthy helping of dark chocolate. Caramel sweetens the tongue before a dry and bitter finish arrives with pepper and lemon. The alcohol content is 7.0% ABV. I can’t say this beer was overly memorable, but it was a solid player in the Baltic Porter category. I enjoyed bitter finish that overcame the sweetness on the front end.
