4 Mile Brewing Co. Rice Pudding Porter American Porter at 6% ABV | 28 IBU (C$7.79 at Quarry Park Calgary Co-Op, 650 ml, no bottle date or best before, acquired 13-Dec-2016, reviewed 20-Dec-2016)

Appearance: slightly hazy reddish-tinted deep brown with amber with one fat finger of creamy beige head, moderate retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: vanilla, toasted rice, caramel, cocoa, cinnamon. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter, light spice. (6/10) Palate: medium-full body, soft carbonation, off-dry sweet and mildly spicy finish. (3/5)

A bit strange – simultaneously sweet and drying, with chocolate and vanilla notes. I guess it’s… sort of… rice pudding… ish? Not unpleasant, but I can’t say I’d go looking for it again. (12/20)
