The last post in the Heartland Brewery series will be about one of their seasonal brews: Not Tonight Honey Porter. Apologies for the picture quality–I lost my original picture.

Admittedly I ordered this beer for the name, but that hasn’t led me astray before, and it didn’t this time either. This was a rich, smooth, malty beer with a light honey/chocolate aroma. It was dark ebony, but don’t let that fool you: this is a porter, so it is quite a bit lighter than a stout of the same flavor profile. When tasting it I got hints of molasses, honey, and chocolate. This beer is a seasonal, so it’s only available January-April.

Try this if you like: Sierra Nevada Porter, Boulder Old Chicago Black Diamond Chocolate Porter
