FUNKY PORTER

Funky porter. The pub down the street has a new range of weirdball Italian beers on the bar top and, by dint of them not having any cold bottles of the only two beers I actually wanted, I ended up with this one.

It's from a northern Italian craft brewer and it's, umm, funky.

But it's not funky in a porter way. It's funky in its own way, because it barely touches on any of the traditional porter characteristics.

For starters, there is not a single trace of coffee (i know, and in Italy and everything, right?).

The smell is a bit chemical-ridden and it tastes bitter, but without any other significant flavours laid down as a base.

I choked it down, at 6.6%, and I am not keen to choke down another.

 

3/10
