GENESEE BREW HOUSE SALTED CARAMEL CHOCOLATE PORTER

STYLE: ENGLISH STYLE PORTER
ABV: 6.5%
CHRIS GROVES CERTIFIED CICERONE

NOV 05, 2015

The first time I visited the Genesee Brew House back in 2012, I was truly floored by what was coming out of the “small” 20 barrel brewery on Cataract St. in Rochester. Brewmaster Dean Jones was brewing at least a half dozen solid styles, only available at the two bars located inside a renovated, former Genesee packaging facility. In the years since, Jones has brewed at least 40 different styles to much praise including their latest package release, Salted Caramel Chocolate Porter. A scaled up recipe originally brewed as a limited edition collaboration with Hedonist Artisan Chocolates takes a traditional English style Porter and inserts layers of complexity brought by a massive dose of French chocolate, caramel and sea salt. For beers typically packing this much flavor, you would expect to see an ABV north of 9%; not so with this, clocking in at 6.5%. This beer has the ability to be several different things depending on what temperature you serve it. Cold from the fridge, the beer pours deep brown with aromas and flavors of bittersweet chocolate, deep roast and salt with a slightly thinner body than one might expect. As the beer warms, roast takes a back seat to bittersweet chocolate, enhanced by salt, making a perfect dessert beer. Just in time for indoor party season, pair it with like flavors or your favorite Baklava. Pick up a 4-pack to share with friends and have a toast to the new Genny! #thinknydrinkny
