Hey, look, I found some beer review notes in my Notes app on my iPad. No doubt at some point I was going to flesh these out into an actual beer review. However, I am too busy (read “lazy”) to do that these days. Plus, beer review are just … passé. So I will just spew out these unadulterated first impressions of a smoked porter called Train Smoke, found at Black Bridge Brewery.
Been waiting for this one.
No aroma, that’s ok.
Acrid, dry but not enough smoke. Almost … Milky. Weird.
Did it bring out the redneckians? Apparently.
It’s a Wookie of a beer, chewy.
Love the dry aftertaste.
Caramel as it warms. Grows on you like a growth.
Another session with it: a little more astringent but finally got the smoke. Ok, I don’t know if it’s good smoke. Like the remains of cigar in a casino.
Well, make what you will of that. I am, personally, slightly scared to try it again. No, that’s a lie. I just lied. On the Internet. How typical.
