Hooker Imperial Porter

This week, I purchased a pint of Hooker Imperial Porter. Both the label and the link (which apparently hasn’t been updated in two years) say that it is “full bodied, sweet, with a caramel flavor and a coffee-like taste.” I’d say that description is fairly accurate – caramel was the first flavor I tasted. However, they forgot to mention the aftertaste, which is sour and quickly takes over the sweetness.

The bottle also says “Adds holiday warmth and cheer to any beer lover’s winter.” Ha. It is as refreshing as a dark beer can be, and isn’t too bad in the Georgia summer heat. And one last note – I do know how to pour beer, but this one dumped it head over the side of the glass and I had to wait quite a while for it to go down. This may or may not be related to my technique, but I assure you that my clumsy pouring did not contribute to the problems I mentioned in last week’s post.
