|Black Boss Porter *must be drunk from an over sized goblet|
In addition to the glassware he discovered the beer and at that moment I knew that we'd be in here for a while so I left him to go meander through the spice aisle. We left with 7 different beers, 2 specialty beer glasses - two of each (pilsner and schooner style), a jar of cardamom, 12 silicone muffin liners, a glass plate and 2 silicone egg poaching pods - love those things! The total was $51.29...not to shabby - but hey, it's all for the blog right? Charge it to my expense account!
Anyways lets focus on the beer, the reason you are reading this post.
One of the beers we picked up was a bottle of Black Boss Porter. This is a Polish beer, brewed and bottled in Witnica Poland since 1848. It has a high alcohol content of 9.4%!! Whoopee!
1st sip: The first sip is a burst of flavor. It overwhelmed my taste buds to the point that I couldn't distinguish anything right away.
Sip 2 & 3: By the second and third swallow you can tell this is a fantastic, easy drinking beer.
Flavors: Sweet caramel, hops are light but present with a slightly bitter aftertaste that mellows out as you drink. Light drinking porter very reminiscent of a New Zealand Black Mac.
Colour: Deep rich caramel.
Cost: $1.99 USD
Shawn's notes: "This beer must be drunk from an over sized goblet in order to experience the true potential of this beer *see picture. Also, pick up a 6 pack as this a Porter that the ladies will enjoy drinking along side the guys."
Final Word: This is a fabulous beer! This is the first Porter that I really enjoyed drinking. We will be buying more of this! 5/5!!
