In this beer blog, we are going to look at the second of three beers from Ale Asylum. If you read my earlier blog on their Jacksin Double IPA, you know some about this brewery. If you have not, please, read the frist part of that beer blog. Let us get into their Contorter Porter.
It has a dark black color without a head on the beer. It has a heavy coffee notes with a little chocolate notes. The taste of this porter is like a black coffee. It really does not have an aftertaste. I can see some people thinking it is drinkable. There are some that might think this porter is not drinkable beer. I am one beer and done that is not a bad thing.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Our porter is dark in color yet soft on the palate. English chocolate malts give it a complex, rich flavor wrapped in a silky smooth finish. Contorter is all natural and unfiltered for superior flavor and quality. It is brewed with passion and is best enjoyed that way.
Here is a description from their website (www.aleasylum.com):
Available: Year Round Style: English Porter Motto: Smooth never tasted so smooth.
You’re not still afraid of Dark, are you? You don’t know how that hurts Dark’s feelings! Dark would never judge you like that. Not even after what you did at summer camp. You know that thing you’ve always wanted? Dark just got you two of them. Dark wants to know what else it can do to change your mind. How about a glassy smooth porter with a long, silky finish? Will that seal the deal? Dark thought so.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, it is really hard to make a bad porter, stout, or any IPA’s. I am not saying this is a bad porter. It is an average porter and I would love to try this beer straight from the brewery. I believe I received old beer. I am on the state line on this beer. I can see this beer being really good if it was a little bit more fresher. DO NOT judge the beer from this posted. I will be doing an updated blog when I try it at the brewery or I get a fresh bottle. Go get some in Wisconsin! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
