After the tri

After the triathlon on Sunday, I treated myself to a celebratory beer! I had stocked up on a couple of porters I’ve never had the last time I was at Total Wine, and I figured it was time to try one.

I had the Highland Oatmeal Porter.

I originally picked up a few of these porters because they are brewed in Asheville, NC and Jack is from that area, oh yeah, and because I love porters!

Poured into a Gouden Carolus glass (it makes me feel fancy) very dark. Roasted oats, malts, chocolate. Not too heavy on the coffee notes (this is a plus for me since I don’t like coffee). Mildly sweet, good mouthfeel and just the right amount of carbonation. I’ll have to admit, it was better than I thought it was going to be. I don’t know why, but I wasn’t expecting very much from it, and was happy to taste that it surpassed my expectations!
