American craft beer can’t escape: the fact that internet is a wealth of knowledge that cannot be completely trusted. While trying to find out information about by Weyerbacher Brewing Company, American craft beer number 239, I found conflicting material on the beer. One web site had the beer as no longer being made while Weyerbacher’s site had it under their “Brewer Selected Beers.” From past research I am not too fond of jumping on the breweries web site and belling what I see as some do a horrible job of keeping that information up to date. To be honest, after all that, I am not sure what is going on with this beer. I do know the bottle I reviewed had been in my cellar for 15 months.
Hotel poured a deep brown that could be penetrated by a bright light. Flavor and aroma where similar: chocolate, sweet, and roasted malts creating a well manicured American porter. At times I thought I even could sense coffee and smoke. Quite easy to drink hitting the spot on a hot, humid day.
If the beer is still made I would definitely have it again as I would like to find out the hop profile from a fresh pour. Enjoy!
