Shenanigans Stunt Beer Holey Porter
Brewery: Shenanigans Brewing Company
Format: 640ml Bottle
The first in our 'Stunt Beer' series and brewed specially for Sydney Craft Beer Week, Holey Porter! is a robust porter with something extra. Inspired by the first currencies of New South Wales, we aged the beer on oak soaked in spiced rum. As a nod to Sydney's multicultural nature, we threw some spices in the kettle at the end of the boil as well as a handful of flavoursome chillis (from Dan's backyard) to give it a subtle spicey aroma and flavour. Let this one warm up a little in order to let the layers of luscious dark malts, Australian hops and complex spice character open up!
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
The spiciness is more noticeable than the porterness
The tasting notes for this say it has chilli and other spices. To be honest, I didn't really taste chilli in it (It's certainly nothing like Matsos Chilli beer), but the spice flavour was quite strong, drowning out what seemed to be a pleasant porter underneath.
It's still a pleasant drop, but isn't something I would drink regularly.
