Spy Porter (Tree Brewing)

Spy Porter (Tree Brewing)

Ratebeer 3.21 63rd percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +2

The nose is very light, almost lager like. There was a vague grain-like sweetness, light caramel and a wisp of roast. It was very carbonated and dry with a good dose of roast. The brew also provided a slight bready taste with weak coffee and bitter chocolate.

Aftertaste +1

The big carbonation tang cleansed the palate very well. Everything went away except for a woody smoke residue. Much like a rauchbier only less, much less.

Alcohol Content 0 5%

Value 0

It was a porter, but just lacked the richness. It felt a little watered down.

Ingame Enhancement 0

Nope I'm done here.

Overall 3/10

Technically it was a porter, but it just felt a little weak. If you wanted to say you tried a full, robust porter with roast, chocolate and coffee; this one is not it. That being said it will appeal to almost every beer drinker with not being overpowering.
