Robust Porter
Beer Color


This is a great porter. The first time I made it it was too smokey. I toned down the smoked malt in this version. I used white organic tea (good tea, not the crap in the little bags). White tea is less bitter than black so I think white workes better. The Earl Gray comes thru nicely. I enjoy the Peat smoke but i'm sure it could be substituted for another smoked malt. This is a porter, not a smoked beer, so take it easy on the smoked malt. Mouth feel is really good, light enough to make you want another.
