Loaded Question Brewing Co. The Tartan
What the brewers say
A balanced American Porter with notes of coffee, chocolate and a light roasty finish.
What our panel thought
Deep black in color, a medium brown head with some good depth on it that goes the distance. Malty, roasty nose is very inviting. Very rich, luscious oat-like taste and mouthfeel, smooth, sweet with dark caramel. Creamy mouthfeel backed up by chocolate and roast that coats the tongue. Slightly sweet on the finish. A little more hop bitterness would go a long way here, but this is quite tasty. A very enjoyable beer.
What our editors thought
Roast and light smoke with a bitter chocolate note on the nose and a warm citrus undertone. Round chocolate notes perfectly placed, neither sweet nor bitter, convey with a rounded smoothness that's perfect for enjoying pint after pint.
