Parallel 49 Brewing Co. – Parallelogram Oatmeal Coffee Porter Review
Parallel 49 Brewing Company teamed up with the similarly named Forty Ninth Parallel Coffee Roasters to brew an Oatmeal Coffee Porter. This collaborative brew is the first release in a procession of many P49 collaborations to come. From the bottle this craft beer pours as a very dark, chestnut brown colour topped with a thick finger’s worth of head. From this beer comes smells of bittersweet chocolate and a whole lot of coffee. A body big for a Porter is slightly creamy verging on the profile of a stout. A nice balance of chocolate and coffee come to fruition and are not as overpowering as the smell may have led you to believe. The Parallelogram is a smooth, big bodied porter with nice balance of flavour and a light kick of sweetness to pull the whole package together.
