Tripel Exultation (Eel River)

Tripel Exultation = 8/10
Ratebeer 3.59 96th percentile
Beer Advocate 85%

Order up! Today's special is vinous, figs and caramel in a glass. It comes with a side order of slick and warming sherry notes but not too burning. You can upgrade to a thin sherry with prunes, herbal and floral hops. For Dessert: extra alcohol vapours are on the house. A little thin for a big ABV.

Taste +3
Aftertaste +2
Alcohol Content +1 9.7%
Value  +1 barely
Appearance +1 full label and organic!

Eel River Organic Porter

Eel River Organic Porter

This covers two of my favourite styles: porters and organics.

Ratebeer 3.49 86th percentile
Beer Advocate B

Taste +4

Just as a good porter should be; the nose was roasted/smoky with dark malt and a slight cocoa aroma. The taste was also as expected. Simply delicious with smoked wood and sweet/dry cocoa nibs. Overall the taste was roasted and dry. As the drink warmed up, more molasses flavours came out.

Aftertaste 0

The sweet and dry cocoa just vanished.

Alcohol Content +1 6.3%

Value +1

This is a good, simple and rich porter.

Ingame Enhancement +1

Pure bias here. Organic is always a bonus.

Overall 7/10

Yet another solid, roasted and dry porter with hints of cocoa sweetness. Well done.
