Today was way less stressful than the last two days. I got a lot of work done today and felt pretty good about how the day went. Tonight we’re catching up on the new season of Weeds.
Decided to review this Founders Porter. It’s been in storage since probably February or May. Not on purpose…just kinda happened that way. I think the beer may have gotten too old, or I simply got a bad bottle. Complete and utter gusher (see picture). The picture was taken AFTER I got the initial gusher, poured out the head, and started over very carefully. I probably ended up with less than half the beer in my glass.
Not a lot going on in the aroma. Roasted smells.
Despite having a gusher, the beer doesn’t taste horrible. Then again, I’ve never had the beer, so how do I know what it is supposed to taste like?
Tastes of super dark roast coffee. Plenty of linger. Not sweet, but not particularly bitter either. Noticeable carbonation.
Would definitely like to try this again, preferably fresh and less gushy.
