Ballast point once again has a winner. This porter carries a perfect roasty malt base to allow the coffee and chocolate addition while not becoming overly bitter or too sweet. It has a very nice earthiness that flows through the malt, coffee and chocolate to join all the flavors with one common presence. The coffee is not overpowering and really balances the malt and chocolate while a slightly higher carbonation brings everything out for a clean and smooth feel. This is a great beer to enjoy this time of year and at 6% ABV you can enjoy a few.
