Sweet Baby Java
|British Origin Ales||Robust Porter||6.2||53|
Today we have "Sweet Baby Java" which is a Robust Porter that could be compared to a Strong IPA. Sitting at a ABV value of 6.2 your going to want to watch how many of these you consume in one sitting! This beer is meant for the drinker with a distinguished taste for bitterness.
Robust porters are black in color and have a roast malt flavor, often reminiscent of cocoa, but no roast barley flavor. These porters have a sharp bitterness of black malt without a highly burntcharcoal flavor. Caramel and other malt sweetness should be present and in harmony with other distinguishing porter characters. Robust porters range from medium to full in body and have a malty sweetness. Hop bitterness is medium to high, with hop aroma and flavor ranging from negligible to medium. Diacetyl is acceptable at very low levels. Fruity esters should be evident, balanced with roast malt and hop bitterness.
