In this beer blog, we are going to get into a beer from Beards Brewery. It is their Serendipity Porter. We will get into a little history and then into the beer. Beards Brewery was founded in 2012 by Ben Slocum and Peter Manthei in Petoskey, Michigan. Let us get into this porter.
It has a jet black color without a head on this porter. The aroma has a chocolate, coffee, and a slight smokey notes. The taste has a slight creamy chocolate with a smoke to coffee notes on the back end of the tasting experience. The aftertaste has some nice smokey notes. It is not really drinkable. It is one maybe two beers and move on to the next beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.beardsbrewery.com):
Exceptionally smooth with a pronounced chocolatey flavor and balanced sweetness. Subtle notes of cherry and smoke on the finish. Pairs well with desserts featuring peanut butter and chocolate, or a second glass of Serendipity
Here is their website and Twitter addresses:
Ending, there is so many new craft breweries opening and entering the beer market. I believe it is hard for new craft breweries to do something different than the other breweries. It is a solid beer. I love it, however, it is not Great Lakes Fitz. I will buy Great Lakes’ Porter over this porter. I am not saying it a bad beer. It is a great beer and they did a great job. I can get Great Lakes Porter cheaper. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
