Chocolate Cherry Porter – Tin Whistle Brewing

From Tin Whistle Brewing in Penticton comes their latest edition of “Chocolate Cherry Porter”.  This is a brand new recipe this year much like many of their brews coming out of their new location.  The beer pours an opaque black colour with a brown head.  The aroma consists of big cherries, chocolate, some roasted malts and toffee.  The flavour is of semi sweet cherries, chocolate, toffee, roasted malts and a hint of bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 5.5%.  When I hear cherry and chocolate I usually think of those chocolate covered maraschino cherries and I run away but luckily this beer tastes nothing like those and is quite enjoyable.  The brewery even recommends making it into a beer float.  I had some leftover ice cream cake and tried it out.  It worked quite well in my opinion!
