Quesnel’s Barkerville Brewing has released a Chocolate Porter called the Holy Moses. This beer is light at 4.2% and is sold in 650ml bottles. Pouring the beer its colour is a deep brown and has two full fingers of off-white head. The aroma is malty and rich with strong notes of chocolate and a touch of coffee on the nose. The body is light with a subtle creaminess to it while the cocoa adds a bitter-sweetness to the mix. Hops too add to the ensemble with a mellow lingering bitterness. The Holy Moses is light bodied but big flavoured with intense cocoa notes along side a very nice malt backbone. This is definitely a beer worth seeking out.
