Tasting impressions #57: Stout Porter

July 28, 2014

I brewed this beer last year and have already tasted it twice, here and here. Head is fluffy, huge, tan coloured and has big holes. Aroma has lost a lot of roastiness, has some coffee but mostly fruity sourness. The wife says cough-syrupy aniseed. Mouthfeel is soft and light as a feather, very round. Taste has no ash-tray, not much roasted flavours, not much coffee, not much hops – and has become something more, has become more than the sum of all its parts. Very delicate, very light. Very drinkable and sophisticated. Perhaps my best beer. Time is doing its work in the bottle, ageing and maturing the beer, polishing off the rough edges.
