Wake Up Porter | Birdsong Brewing Company
Wake me up with this awesome porter from Birdsong! I love getting to check out their canned beers here in Boone, NC at Benchmark Provisions. As soon as I snagged a 4-pack, I couldn't wait to have it with my breakfast, honestly; morning beer or shower beer, this is it. The aroma is robust with mocha and coffee tones. The color is thick and black with a nice tall, tan foam head with balanced retention. The smell is strong, making the taste even stronger and tastier. That inital sip is a coffee foward bite with hints of chocolate and fresh espresso, but you get a rich cream aftertaste that balances the overal profile. Made with coffee from Charlotte's own Central Coffee! Here at Brew, we are huge about local coffee shops and beers, really anything brewed. At 5.8% ABV, the Wake Up porter is a strong and flavorful rendition of this beer style. You can, and probably will, end up wanting to take your time with this one. Thank you BIrdsong!
