Beer of the Night: Aug. 27 (Part 2)

Tonight’s second Thirsty Beagle Beer of the Night is Choc’s Smoked Porter.

Smoked Porter is the winner of the first Brew at Choc’s Home homebrew contest. I got to spend a day at the Choc brewery back in March on beer judging day, so it’s pretty cool to get a chance to taste the winner five months later. Now, in terms of the beer, I’ve not enjoyed too many smoked porters, so maybe I’m a little bit of a novice on the beer type, but hot damn this thing is smoky. I feel like I’m drinking a camp fire, but in a good way. It’s smoky, slightly sweet and very smooth. Two beagle paws up.
