Are there comfort beers like there are comfort foods? Maybe we should restructure our categorizations of beer based on how you feel as you have one. This beer surely would make many lists of beers that imitate how a heavy fall sweater feels, how a basement rec room cocoons.
The only brewery I still see making polypins, however sensible, the beers of Harvey & Sons had been reviewed a few times hereabouts including even a sibling porter. This one pours deep cola with a light mocha rim and foam. On the nose there is cocoa powder licorice and prune. In the mouth, sweet fresh water, blackened date square edgings with dark chocolate leading to a dry cocoa and twiggy hop finish ending in a pointed date biscuit and espresso conclusion. A solid more-ish porter at at reasonable 4.8% to be found these days at the LCBO. Ten percent of BAers are clueless. Porter season.
