The base was Northern Brewer’s Peace Coffee Stout Porter. But reading Dogfish Head founder Sam Caligione’s Brewing Up a Business inspired me to experiment. (I actually experimented on my very first beer, Bombadil Stout.)
In reading a bunch of porter recipes this morning, I noticed many used molasses. So…I poured in molasses to this one!
But once again, I need your help in coming up with a name. Ever since college, I’d dreamed about brewing a “Pastor’s Porter.” But now that that pastoring is in limbo, I’m thinking of more creative names like “PSP: Pint Sized Porter” (given the pint sized help I got today!).
How about you? What creative names can you come up with for a porter with coffee and molasses?
If you’re not familiar with porters…you’re missing out! But you can read about them here at Wikipedia’s porter page. They have a cool history.
