Avery “New World Porter”
“New World Porter.” The name is perfect for this dry-hopped porter. A good amount of piney hop oils attack the tongue right off the bat. Then it mellows out for the finish where the dark roasted barley comes in. The malt is of a bitter coffee roast base with a sweet caramel accent. The successful way the dark malt merges with pine hops, the creamy though viscous feel, and a decent drinkability make for an overall well made beer. Not too thick, not too thin, just right.
This is a shift from tradition, but they really pull it off. It’s my go-to porter. My taste typically leans toward hoppy, so I appreciate this well hopped porter. Nicely done. Recommended
