This is more of a bocky porter than a portery bock, in my taste. It pours nicely and looks promising, but the overall character of the beer leaves something to be desired. Like most Cold Spring beer, it just lacks a little personality. Now I’m not saying this is a bad beer, in fact, it was quite enjoyable. It just sounds like a better idea on paper.
I used to be a typical Bud/Busch/Michelob guy. Whatever's cold, right?! (I grew up in a town of 690) However, around my final year of college, I developed tastebuds and soon began to whistle a different tune. My fridge now usually contains about 5-7 different beers at any given time, and I'll be dipped in dog doo if you can find a domestic light beer in there. My tastes are more inclined to the dark side, with Stouts and Black Lagers being my favorites, generally speaking, though I have developed a love for IPAs as well. View all posts by Joe Lunchpail
