M is for Mammoths in Mocha & Model Boats
Why combine robust porter with Peruvian organic coffee and vanilla? Because we can!
Yes, it’s still a beer but not as you know it. Pouring a deep ebony with a tan head. The mammoth aroma is all about the coffee which also features proudly on the palate too. Sweet Vanilla plays a supporting role softening the edges of the coffee bit and producing a mocha impression.
There’s still just enough malt and hops to keep it interesting and remind you that you’re drinking beer. Drink cool rather than cold. Try pairing with a rich dark chocolate dessert, hearty stew or crepes.
