Phat Brew Club's Phat Porter is American leaning in style, with bitter, dark malt notes featuring across the nose and palate.
On pouring, the beer creates a dense, caramel head that leads into sweet aromatics of chocolate, salted caramel and some gentle earthy and spicy hop characters. On tasting, it’s a similar theme where malt is a key driver of flavour: dusty cocoa and rich, slightly tart dark chocolate are present among a slight caramel sweetness and a hint of coffee. Some bitterness is present, both malt- and hop-derived, and soft but distinguishable pine and earthiness from hops balance an otherwise malt-heavy offering.
Phat Brew Club’s Porter is the beer that started it all, and from humble beginnings it has grown into a solid, highly revisitable offering.
