Mo Joe revisited – a coffee porter 2 years later

Pitman Brewing Mo Joe Porter

A couple years ago, I bottled a coffee stout I called Mo Joe Porter. (The name came from a fun beer naming competition.)

I am now finishing up the last bottles. And it’s much better with a couple years of aging. Right after it was bottled, it tasted a bit odd, the coffee was so pronounced it was confusing. Was it a porter that tasted like coffee? Or an iced coffee with an alcoholic content.

Now it’s all mellowed. Rather than two competing tastes, it’s just s nice coffee porter. And the molasses notes linger pleasantly.

So often in life, good things come to those who wait. 🙂
