Brown Porter
Beer Color


I wanted a very basic porter recipe but I wanted to make it unique with a few additives.

Good classic porter taste with just a hint of chocolate, slightly sweetness, and a bitter coffee after taste. Has a very good aroma and the added things are a nice hint without being over baring.
