Notes

This remarkably robust porter stands tall among the competition. Constructed of an intricate blend of caramalt, chocolate and lager malts, this deep brown beer is full bodied and rich in flavor. Hints of toffee and trace notes of chocolate are just a few of the attributes that define this well balanced brew. The Black Tower is a well crafted monument of strength and beauty.
-Mr. Beer

What can I say other than Wow. Everything was DEAD on with this. Carbonation just about blew my face off when I popped the swing-top. Real malty flavor and smell. Thick creamy chocolate head. Very light bodied and extremely easy to drink, Not as heavy as some of the Porter styles I've had in the past. Delicious.Very proud of this recipe.
