Ska Brewing Company Nefarious 10 Pin Porter - 8% ABV
Ska Brewing Company was founded in 1995ish by a couple of underage stoners in Durango, Colorado who loved to drink beer and listen to ska music. Hey, if you can't buy beer legally you may as well brew your own, right? Their culture of loud music, strong beers and good times is something with which I can find little fault. I also can find few faults with their beers.
The color is just what you expect of a porter, dark brown/black color and lightly carbonated . Huge nose of roasted malts, chocolate and the burn of alcohol. The flavor is wonderfully balanced with malts, yeasts, coffee, dark fruits, chocolate and caramel sweetness. To be sure the hops are there, but not overpowering. Dandy, dandy beer.
