Samuel Adams Holiday Porter


Type of Beer: Porter

Alcohol Content: 5.80%

Beer Review –

Appearance: Pours a deep brown. A thin one finger tan head that remains, while leaving a little lacing.

Smell: Sweet, soft smokiness. An almost musty smell at the end which is indicative of Sam Adams generous use of English hops.

Initial Taste: Smoky chocolate and roasted caramel with the hoppy bite at the finish. Definitely a full-bodied, flavorful beer that is pretty smooth for a Porter, not harsh or overly bitter.

Thoughts: Porters have a rich and storied history in the UK. This is what I think the “porters” would have had with their suppers after a hard day’s work. A mans brew that goes well with smoked or grilled meats.
