Blackstone Porter (Driftwood)

Finally a real porter. Flavoured porters are OK, but I prefer the real thing.

Blackstone Porter (Driftwood) 7/10

Ratebeer 3.42 78th percentile
Beer Advocate A-

I had a nasty head cold while sampling this beer. It did not seem to matter; the aroma blew though the phlegm. The big roasted barley and bitter chocolate notes were everywhere. Bitter chocolate and dry, sweet barley flavours dominated the medium-full mouthfeel. Don't forget the added tastes of stale coffee, good stale coffee. At the end, there was long lingering of dry, roasted and bittersweet chocolate. Highly recommended.
