Big in body and flavor with chocolate, coffee and caramel notes. A favorite among customers and staff alike. So rich and thick with a chocolaty palate, that you won't be able to drink this one slowly.

Porter Call Me A Taxi Extract Kit

  • Description
  • Q and A

This recipe has stood the test of time. First brewed over 13 years ago and has been a Great Fermentations standard ever since. With an original gravity of around 1.054, this beer is so flavorful that it drinks as a much bigger beer. A rich unsweetened to semi-sweet chocolate palate comes from a pound of chocolate malt and 4 oz. of debitterized black. The palate is rounded out with some 60L crystal and enough Cluster hops to bitter. We suggest Wyeast 1007 German Ale for a dry finish or 1728 Scottish Ale for a more malty finish. Want to change it up? Add cacao nibs or cold-pressed coffee in the secondary.

This is an easy brew for first timers. I've got 1 more week of bottling conditioning to go. Sampled at bottling, tasted good. Followed directions and OG/FG exact as predicted on recipe.

I just bottled this, and waiting for carbonation. Brew day was smooth and tasted great right before bottles.
