As I continue my way through a delightful collection of beers given to me over the holidays, tonight it is Diamond Bear Paradise Porter.
Some unfamiliar fragrances for a porter here with raspberry coming through quite a bit. Unfamiliar flavors, too. Gone are the chocolate and coffee you might expect, replaced with nutty malt, raspberry, pretzels, wood, and an extremely dry and chalky finish. The grassy hops are quite aggressive for a porter, too.
Very different. Give it a try.
