I had a bottle a few weeks ago, and it was great, one of the better porters I’ve ever had. Then I had one this week for the review, and it had a ton of coffee, which some people love, but I’m not a fan of. I keep trying coffee porters, and not many are pleasing to my palate. With that in mind, I do think that cygnus nailed the style, but like many of Flat Earth’s beers, while very tasty, the inconsistency is frustrating. Woulda been a four, four-and-a-half. Keep it coming guys!
My wife and two kids tolerate my love of beer and politics. When I'm not helping out a local candidate for office or lobbying the state legislature on behalf of early childhood issues (my job), I'm making beer and drinking it. I also contribute what insight I have about beer on my own blog, to mnbeer.com and the Twin Cities Imbiber 'zine. View all posts by Eric
