Commercial Description
Using all-natural ingredients, this deep, slightly smoky porter evokes a hint of blueberry in aroma and flavor; just enough to entice the senses. The smokiness of the malt in combination with the sweetness of the blueberries ultimately create an incredibly balanced beer.

    The quintessential British style brown porter. During the 1800’s this full bodied style of ale made up 80% of the beer sold in England.

    Blue Ball Porter starts like you want a porter to. Thick, dark, and a big dark head. More toffee and chocolate in the nose rather than roast, bit of alcohol, too. The first sip sets this porter apart and gives you the reason for the clever name; blueberries. Lots of blueberries at first. It's a little watery for a porter, but a bold finish with lots of roast, even some char.

    Just a tad over 5% ABV, so it's not going to destroy you, either.

    Not my favorite porter, but I'm kind of liking it. Props for doing something different!
