Brown Porter


It is quite nice, a very middle-of-the-road porter: nice flavor, not too heavy. Interestingly, it is essentially a "use the leftovers" recipe. The Northwestern Extracts were available at a great discount from the local homebrew shop when you purchased more than some amount, and all the rest of the ingredients were remainders from previous batches. The name is a testimony to my current employer, which has recently been purchased by a major competitor.
