Saltspring Island Ales – Dry Porter Review
As BC craft beer lovers catch on to the beer coming off Saltspring Island it is becoming slightly easier to find on the shelves of BC beer retailers. The Dry Porter is a beer that has recently shown up in locations across the province. Pouring with one finger of head this deep brown coloured beer smells of nut, caramel and espresso. The flavour starts off smooth and creamy with toasted malt notes. This mellow beginning builds into an intense espresso middle and finishes with secondary notes of chocolate, caramel and hop bitterness. The espresso takes charge in this beer making its presence known. If you like darker beers and espresso flavours this is a beer that should definitely be on the to-do list.
