24 Beers of Christmas: Day 13

By scot in 24 Beers of Christmas, Beer on Monday, December 13th, 2021

Day 13 of the 24 beer of Christmas is Mittenless, an American Porter, from Pollyanna Brewing Company in St. Charles, Illinois. The third beer in a row that not only filled me with anticipation but did a good job of telling the Christmas story with their artwork.

Mittenless is not short on vanilla. The vanilla is the focus in the aroma and taste. I think this has taken away from the underlying porter (what does it taste like) creating an almost extract version of vanilla. The vanilla needs a bigger backbone to rest one and just isn’t there for Mittenless. I would not have this beer again. Enjoy!
