Brewery: Brauhaus Binkert
Color: unfiltered mahogany
Head: tan, rocky, massive
Nose: malt, roast, hops
Palate: balanced, roasty, underlying hops
Finish: lingering, dry, semi-bitter
Served: from a bottle bought locally
Impression: Binkert is a relatively new brewery which brews both traditional and new craft beer styles. This a very good interpretation of an American porter with a nice mix of roast and hops, lingering into the dryish, semi-bitter finish. A great if hearty session ale at 5.3%.
