Eel River Porter

Eel River Brewing Company, Scotia, CA

5.8% ABV

The Eel River Porter is a very dark brown color.  It has a sweet chocolate smell – like Hershey’s Special Dark.  It tastes very sweet, but not cloying.  It has a bit of a coffee taste on the back end.  This reminds Father Jack of Hershey’s syrup.  Doc Sportello is just inexperienced with chocolate beers and so far, not a fan.  Large Marge likes Eel River.  It’s one of the first craft brews she tried and liked.  And yes, it’s organic.  The Porter may need a bit more bitterness to balance out the sweetness though.  Doc thinks it just tastes like a dark chocolate beer, but he’s not a fan and it’s just too sweet for him.

Would we have this again?  No.
