Year of New Beer: Alberta Clipped Porter, Great Lakes Brewing (Cleveland)

Written By: Dion on 07/07/2015

In my haste to get packed and hit the road last night, I forgot to post my beer. This one boasts an aroma containing the expected coffee bean, bittersweet chocolate, and roasted nuts, as well as the unexpected fruity kick of raspberry. All of these aspects transition nicely to the tongue, with the chocolate becoming slightly more cocoa powder-like and a mild, earthy bitterness pushing against the berry, which gets dangerously close to being overly artificial. Not bad, but not my favorite from Great Lakes.
