Phase Transition Robust Porter was our original dark beer. Our goal was to make a beer that plays on the subtleties of chocolate and dark fruit flavors. To that end, we used two chocolate malts baked up by some menacingly dark English Crystal Malt to yield notes of dried cherries, caramelized raisins, and pure dark chocolate. What really makes the beer is the addition of piloncillo brown sugar which brings an extra layer of complexity while allowing the beer to be dry with a slight rummy finish. Drinking this liquid will turn you into a solid state of floating on air.
The American porter is a juiced up version of the English porter - more of everything basically. They range from very sessionable to big barrel-aged beers. Lots of aroma and flavor of smoke, roast, cocoa-like sweetness and with all the fullness of the hops and dark malts. Drier and more bitter than a stout, but less creamy and rich. Moderately strong malt flavor usually features a lightly burnt malt character (and sometimes chocolate and/or coffee flavors) with a bit of grainy, dark malt dryness in the finish. Overall flavor may finish from dry to medium-sweet.
