Beer Tasting: Iron Hill Pig Iron Porter

This gem from Iron Hill is typically on their lineup of usual suspects. As I note below, it's one of the better (or at least my favorite) of their standard drafts. I went to Iron Hill on this particular evening looking for the bourbon-aged Baltic and brought this home when I realized the former was on nitrogen and not suitable for growler travel. So, who wouldn't want some Pig Iron Porter at home to relax the night away with?! Bryan's Notes:
  • Roasted nutty aroma
  • Very dark brew with a lumpy, off-white head that sticks around on top and the sides of the glass
  • A fuller mouthfeel, but not overwhelmingly so
  • Bitter chocolate flavor in the middle and noticeable hops in the finish
  • Why am I so short on words for such a fine beer? Perhaps I'm too busy enjoying it!
  • One of Iron Hill's finest, IMHO
p.s. I only included this picture here because of the cabinet nobs and the humorous picture they provided (by accident...really)
