Hell Gate Porter
Source: Jon Olsen, firstname.lastname@example.org,
I'm happy to announce a new brew. It's Matt and Jon's Hell Gate Porter.
I'm very excited 'cuz it's like my fourth batch and tastes the best so
far. It's velvety smooth. Opaque. Excellent hop aroma and flavor. The
bitterness is rounded out by a roasted buttery sweetness (from the
specialty grains and molasses). Anyway, I had my first taste on Wednesday
and it was sufficient to give me liquid courage to propose to Leann. She
said yes. (Sorry to brag about myself and all...couldn't help it though,
I'm so excited!!).
