While at Ashley’s Westland, we are going to sample the very first beer ever made by Original Gravity. It is their Primordial Porter. There is not much history from this Michigan craft brewery. I know they are going to be celebrity their sixth year being in business. Let us get into this porter.
It has a jet black color with a semi tan color head. The aroma has hints of chocolate and coffee notes. The taste has a chocolate to coffee notes with a dry cocoa aftertaste finish. It is a kind of drinkable to sipping porter.
Here is a description from their website (www.ogbrewing.com):
The very first beer brewed at Original Gravity Brewing Company. Primordial Porter is a full flavored Robust style Porter. Almost black in color with a complex malt profile that exhibits a smooth balance between chocolate, coffee and roasted flavors.
O.G = 1.064 –6.0%

In the end, I am a huge fan of porters, stouts, pale ales, and IPA’s. I have never ran into a bad porter maybe not a really good one. I was pretty excited to see this brewery on draft at my craft beer bar. I have been wanting to try their beers for some time since moving back to Michigan. I have had their Southpaw IPA and I really enjoyed it. This lives up to the classic porter style. It is heavy with some nice chocolate notes and hints of coffee. It is full of flavor and I enjoyed it. I love this porter and I just wish I could find it in package. I am looking forward to visiting their brewery here soon. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
