Granville Island Porter and Real Life

Meterman: So lets try again. How did the real life shire meet go?
Flavius: I never know; I always get nervous around new people and do stupid things.
M:Can't imagine that. Did you tell your personal alien abduction story?
F: Only to one person.
M: You restrained yourself from repeatedly smelling your wallet.
F: Only when someone was looking.
M: Good, no one wanted to really look at you anyways.
F: I also complimented someone on their appearance.
M: Great, that is a perfect way to break the ice and make people feel comfortable.
F: I said that he had nice legs and too bad he only had two of them. I like to collect wooden legs.

Granville Island Porter

This is the monthly limited release from Granville Island. You can check out their yearly limited edition release list.

Ratebeer 3.6
Beer Advocate B

Taste +3

Very nice nose of bitter chocolate and roasted malt. The taste is just like the nose, no surprises here. There is a slight tongue tingle from the bitter chocolate, that is balanced nicely by the roasted malt sweetness. You can also pick out a slight espresso bite.

Aftertaste +2

You are left with a lovely bitter chocolate tingling on the tongue and in your mouth.

Alcohol +1 6%

There is just enough to give the tongue tingle and stomach warmth.

Value +1

This comes in the standard 650ml format for $5. I would certainly buy this one again and recommend it to anyone who likes a good porter.

Ingame Enhancement 0

No L4D tonight, boo hoo. Perhaps I need therapy; in RL I often set off car alarms in hopes that hoards of zombies will come running.

Overall 7/10

This is a great porter. Sadly it will only be available for a short period of time.
