Oaked Robust Porter – Blindman Brewing

From Blindman Brewing out of Lacombe Alberta comes their “Oaked Robust Porter”.  The beer pours a deep brown colour with a brown head.  The aroma consists of roasted malts, ash, smoke, caramel and coffee.  The flavour is of ash, burnt coffee, roasted malts, smoke, caramel, oak, some fruit and a semi sweet finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.5% with an IBU of 31.  While not overly oaky this was a nice porter and if you can find a bottle pick it up.
