Bench Creek Brewing Black Spruce Porter

Wholly exhausted of clove/nutmeg/Christmas ornament flavored beers, I thought a more run of the mill porter would do the trick during our tri-annual cleaning of the coffee maker  – you basically toss polident into the reservoir and let it cook itself. Back to the beer, the name lends itself somewhat to the festive season anyway, so I thought it appropriate enough.

At the end of the day, run of the mill it precisely was. Hints of roasted coffee and and serious maltiness made it easily drinkable, however I didn’t find many unique traits about it. Full disclosure – my heart lies with milk stouts anyway if we are in this heaviness of brew. Just good, I would say. At $14 for 4 tallboys, the price is probably about right for it.
