Stanley Park Belgian Plum Porter
Brewed at Turning Point. Collaboration between Todd Fowler (Stanley Park) and Matt Janega (bartender at Craft Beer Market). Deep, dark and delicious. Porter - style ale brewed with a select Belgian ale yeast, East Kent Holding and Styrian Golding hops to impart subtle licorice and earthy, spicy character. A variety if fresh, organic plums have been added to the cask to balance roast, coffee and chocolate notes with hints of sweetness and prunes.
Black or chocolate malt gives the porter its dark brown color. Porters are well hopped and heavily malted. This is a medium-bodied beer. Porters can be sweet. Hoppiness can range from bitter to mild. Porters are often confused with stouts.
