In this beer blog, we are going to get into second beer from Motor City in the last few days. It is their Honey Porter. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Detroit craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Midwest craft brewery. Let us get this honey porter.
It has a jet black color with a constant tan like color head. The smell has a slight chocolate to honey notes. The taste has a smooth chocolate to slight honey notes. The aftertaste has a chocolate cover honey finish. It is a pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.motorcitybeer.com):
Motor City Honey Porter is a full bodied, creamy dark ale with a distinct roasted malt flavor and chocolate overtones. A touch of pure Michigan clover honey adds a subtle sweetness to this smooth, well balanced ale.

Ending, I love honey beers not meads as much. I am talking honey brown ales, stouts, porters etc. I am pretty excited to see this one in the sampler pack. I was hoping to find good beer from this craft brewery. I am starting to see a theme from this brewery. I am not getting much of honey notes in the aroma and taste profile. I am pretty disappointed. It is just like their Nut Brown Ale. It is thin to almost water down. It is like the Michelob and Leinenkugel beer line. I am glad I tried it at least once. I recommend this beer at least once. This is my thought pattern. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
