Dolly Porter—tasting notes
Dolly Porter is a Porter from Musa. It has a strong coffee aroma, roastiness and some hints of caramel. Taste is sweet, with coffee and caramel at the top, some hints of bitterness and a dry and sweet finish.
Imperial Porter or American Porter is a more aggresive version of pre-prohibition Porters or English Porters. It has a dark brown appearance and strong dark malt aromas, with some burnt character and malt additions—chocolate, coffee, etc.— and some hop, even dry hopped. Flavor is malty, with some roasted character, and medium to high bitterness and finish is from dry to sweet. It is more bitter and alcoholic than English Porters, and less strong than American Stouts.
