Another great HB from @Section1 . I told Kevin I would try this on thanksgiving, but I didn’t feel well and didn’t want to drink it and not be able to enjoy it. I’m glad I waited. It’s got a hint of spices, but they’re not overwhelming and nicely balanced with the dark beer. Well done.
I'm on one of those tears right now where I only drink my own brews. We have been killing it lately, with a half dozen beers in a row that we consider perfect (at least to us, as starting points for further iteration). This is our gingerbread porter, kegged in a 1.75 gallon vessel we brought to "second thanksgiving" tonight. Clean tasting, and way too crushable for its 7% abv. The gingerbread spice is right there, but far enough back that you get more "porter" than "cookie" if that makes sense. I kinda want to add more spice when we package to the 5 gallon keg, but right now, for my personal tastes, it's pretty good. I don't usually make porters, but this beer seems like it's an obvious carrier for all kinds of adjunct flavors.
