Highland Brewing Thunderstruck Coffee Porter
Highland Brewing Thunderstruck Coffee Porter comes in at 5.8% ABV.
This pours with an extremely dark brown color, almost black really, with a nice off white head. The aroma brings in some big coffee and roasted malt; I’m also smelling a good amount of chocolate in the aroma as well. The taste is pretty much a near perfect match to the aroma. Big coffee? Check. Medium roasted malts? Check. Semi-sweet chocolate? Check. The mouth-feel is just a touch on the thinner side, but it helps a light creamy sweetness that you might find in a Milk Stout be noticed.
This is a Winter seasonal that I keep an eye out for every year, it never disappoints.
