Sprecher "Generation Porter"
Sprecher Brewing Company - Glendale, Wisconsin USA
Porter (ABV 5.73%)

[Best served in a Nonic Pint glass]

Rating: 3.8/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a pitch black with a large (2-3 finger) light brown frothy head that was mostly lasting and produced some really excellent sheets of lace that coated the glass throughout.

The aroma had a pronounced raspberry and mocha odor with a nice roasted chocolate malt and a mild leathery yeast with a nice hint of dark roasted coffee.

The taste was malty and a bit sweet with notes of coffee and raspberry right off and then became slightly bitter sweet with a nice dose of cocoa and a lightly roasty sweet raspberry finish. The flavor lasted a wonderfully extra long time letting the raspberry mocha taste settle nicely on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just a few shades under full in body with the texture being a tad oily yet just a little dry and having a nice soft carbonation.

Overall a uniquely tasty mix of flavors, which in turn created one fantastic tasting Porter that had a nice fruity roastiness to it.
