Black Mask Porter

Source: Bart Fortune
Recipe added: 11/18/99

This is a very drinkable dark beer - I thought my final gravity would have been near 1.015-1.018 but it went all the way to 1.010. It has a very fruity nose and sweet upfront taste followed by a toasty chocolate malty taste and noticeable hop bitterness all of this help cover up the alcoholic punch in this beer. This is a NorthWest style Porter abv 8.5% ibu's 50
