Red Truck Beer has bottled their limited edition ’46 Porter after winning a Canadian Brewing Awards Silver Medal for this brew. In a 650ml bomber bottle this beer pours as a deep brown colour a smidgen of light sneaks through in a reddish-brown hue. Topped with a thick finger’s worth of lightly lacing head the ’46 porter smells dark with toasted malts and a light cocoa-chocolate aroma. The body of this beer is nice, bigger than a typical porter but lighter than anything resembling a stout this has a bit more to it than you may expect. The flavour is complex with a nice bitter-sweet chocolate flavour along side the toasted malts, light caramel and an slightly burnt/smoke flavour on the finish.This is a big-bodied porter that is complex, delicious and definetly deserves its Canadian Brewing Award accolade.
