Burial Beer The Beginning Is After The End Coffee Porter

Burial Beer The Beginning Is After The End Coffee Porter, 6.5% ABV from Asheville, North Carolina. This coffee porter brewed with Counter Culture Coffee, which uses beans from Onyx Coffee Labs in Arkansas. The Beginning Is After The End pours black with brown edges and a yow finger quickly fading beige head. The aroma on this porter has nice roasted coffee notes, a little caramel, and malty aromas with a very faint dark dried plum. The Beginning Is After The End has a nice full roasted coffee flavor at first. There is a nice malt caramel that has a nice roasted, faint bitter dark fruit finish with a lingering caramel coffee aftertaste. The mouthfeel thick but not too full mouthfeel. Burial Beer The Beginning Is After The End is a good Coffee Porter, an A from me, and something that should be worth a try. It has all the right coffee flavors without overdoing it. I love Burial Beer, and so should you! Please stay safe and enjoy responsibly! Cheers! 

Throwback Thursday: Fullsteam Brewery Fearrington Winter Coffee Pecan Porter

Originally postes April 19th, 2015

One of my favorite styles of beer is coffee beer, whether is a Stout or Porter. They are quite popular among craft beer drinkers. This here is Fullsteam Brewery Fearrington Coffee Pecan Porter, 6.0% ABV. Fullsteam is here in Durham, NC. Fearrington Coffee Pecan Porter using Southern pecans and Fearrington Village Coffee beans. Fearrington Coffee Pecan Porter pours a deep dark black color with a two-finger brown/beige head that slowly fades into a ring round the glass leaving nice thick lacing behind. I found no light through the glass with a little amount of carbonation bubbles. The aroma is fresh with roasted coffee beans and hints of chocolate. The taste is like a nice cup of good coffee and you don’t get much of the pecans. The coffee flavor hinds those pecans. There is a nice light chocolate flavor there that turns a little spicy as this porter warms a bit. But it isn’t an overwhelming spice. The bitterness is low and it allows for the sweetness of the beer to come through a bit. But this porter isn’t overly sweet. It has a nice balance of sweetness with the coffee roasted flavors. The mouthfeel is medium. I thought this was a little thin tasting for a coffee porter. Fearrington Coffee Pecan Porter has a nice chocolaty coffee finish that fades into a semi-sweet nutty and roasted aftertaste. I think that Fearrington Coffee Pecan Porter is a good beer. So I give it a B+. The pecan flavor is not really present until the finish. But Fullsteam Fearrington Coffee Pecan Porter is still good. I enjoyed this and I might have this again, and I recommend that you go out and try it too. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
