Odyssey Nitro Porter – Phillips Brewing Company

From Phillips Brewing Company in Victoria BC comes their “Odyssey Nitro Porter” a canned beer with a widget. When you open the can there is quite the hiss from the Nitrogen being released. The beer pours a deep brown colour with a creamy milk chocolate brown.  The aroma consists of roasted malts, coffee, milk chocolate and a sweet finish. The flavour is of chocolate, roasted malts, mild coffee and caramel. This could possibly be the most creamy canned nitro beer I have had.  The alcohol content comes in at 5%. I find many nitro beers have a muted flavour although this one has quite a bit of flavour and I quite enjoyed it. 

Commercial Description:  Odyssey is infused with nitrogen gas, creating cascading clouds of tiny bubbles that give way to thick dense foam.  Warm roast flavours with accents of nuts and dark chocolate.
