Burnt Hickory Courageous Conductor
Burnt Hickory Courageous Conductor is lovingly called a Red Velvet Porter, and was a last minute addition to our Your Pie event in March. I am not a huge fan of raspberries, but I have found that fruit flavor to be more enjoyable in beers. So I didn’t hesitate to get a full pour as soon as I got to the tap take over. Big raspberry on the nose and in the taste, this time it’s almost too much for me. Fortunately the fruitiness blends with a great amount of roast bitterness and chocolate. The raspberry flavor thankfully blends into more of a cherry flavor as it warms as well. Solid dessert beer, and it paired really well with the homemade stout marshmallows Lee brought to the event that night!
