Haystack Black Porter

Portland Brewing Co

USA

Mmmm...delicious. This used to be called Long-Shot Black Ale, one of those homebrew recipes that won some contest to be mass-produced. I haven't found it in my beer cooler lately, which is a shame. I love porters, and this is a good representative. Black as pitch, and less sweet than some others. Not exactly smoky, but darn near. This is a perfect beer to be sippin' on the bank of the Dolores River in Colorado, pokin' the coals of your fire on a crisp Rocky Mountain summer night.
