About Flavored Porter

About Flavored Porter
Flavored porters are brown to dark brown and average between 5.5-8.5% in alcohol with variations depending on the interpretation of the style. They can be sweet or dry and commonly derive their flavor from dark fruits, coffee, and chocolate added during the brewing process in addition to the standard malt, hops, yeast and water. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Caldera Mogli Imperial Porter, Kona Pipeline Porter and Rogue Mocha Porter.

Vancouver Island Brewing Nanaimo Bar Porter

Mahogany color. Aromas and flavors of Dr. Pepper, cannabis, buttered popcorn, and waffles with syrup with a supple, crisp, spritzy, dryish light body and a smooth, relaxed finish with accents of roasted nuts, peppercorn muffin, black toast, and cocoa puffs in milk finish. A smooth and slightly herbal flavored porter.
Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co. Kentucky Blackberry Barrel Porter

Mahogany in color, with bright aromas of chocolate mousse, raspberry liqueur, cherry cola, and buttered pumpernickel toast. On the palate, vibrant acidity brings in satiny flavors of berry soufflé, chocolate, cake, and caramel to a smooth, medium-length finish. A spicy-sweet, chocolatey porter that’s lifted by bright notes of berry mousse.
