Day 47: mocha porter by northern monk

So today we take a trip back up north with another beer from Northern Monk. So the last beer I had from them was their truly fantastic pale ale and I’m expecting good things as a result. This porter comes from their core range and comes in a 330ml can with an APV of 5.9%. It was black with a single finger white head. Hops and malt on the nose. This beer is rather overpowering when you drink it. You get that hit of malty goodness but this quickly fades into the background and is replaced by a big explosion of alcohol and it spoils the whole affair for me. Sadly northern monk is now batting at 50%. I just can’t recommend this beer currently
