From Mt. Begbie Brewing Company in Revelstoke BC comes their “Cold Smoke (Smoked Porter)” their latest and very limited release. The beer pours a deep amber colour (odd for a porter) with a tan head. The aroma consists of roasted malts, sweetness, cherry and a mild smoke. The flavour is of cherry, roasted malts, mild smoke, fruits, burnt coffee, toffee and a mild bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 6.5% with an IBU of 20. It may not have looked super Porter like but it sure tasted great. The smoke added some nice dimension without being strong.
