Beer Review: BOOTLEGGER’S CHOCOLATE MINT PORTER

Bootlegger’s Brewery presents its Chocolate Mint Porter on tap at their tasting room in Fullerton, CA, boasting an alcohol by volume (abv) of 6.2%.

Appearance:

The pour unveils a dark brown hue, accompanied by an absence of any substantial head.

Aroma:

Wafting from the glass is a distinctive scent reminiscent of a York peppermint patty.

Taste:

The flavor profile mirrors its aromatic promise, delivering a combination of peppermint patty notes, a tinge of bitter roast, and concluding with an herbal, minty aftertaste that lingers even into the burp.

Mouthfeel:

This concoction offers a highly carbonated experience, coupled with a full-bodied texture.

Overall:

Intriguing is the term that best describes Bootlegger’s Chocolate Mint Porter. It successfully treads the fine line, bringing the beer surprisingly close to the realm of a chocolate mint candy. However, its complexity might not lend itself to a prolonged session, yet it could prove to be an excellent accompaniment to a chocolate-infused dessert.
