Pearl Street Brewery – Smokin’ Hemp Porter – 4 out of 7 smokestacks


Smells like a 4, tastes like a 4 (on a 1 – 7 scale). Reminds me of Stone smoked porter, but with more roasted flavors (when I want more smoke). This beer is kinda thin, dark, but not dense with particles because light seems to pierce right through my full glass, which isn’t necessarily bad, but it does explain why I’m not currently touring flavor country. Halfway through this beer and I’m getting cottonmouth. Swear. Only encouraging me to drink more (clever, but dangerous), but I don’t care. The world needs someone to drink as many smokebeers as possible and then write about them, I think, therefore this is my contribution to the world. You’re welcome. You should watch the TV show Alone. It’s about a buncha people isolated out in the woods, filming themselves, slowly coming to the realization that they have gotten themselves in over their heads. I find that funny. And I bet I could be one of those people. In the woods, filming myself slowly deteriorate for your amusement. Give me a couple more of these Smokin’ Hemp Porters and I’ll sign up. Also, I don’t know anything about the outdoors. Pearl Street looks like they’ve stamped “BB” on their bottle caps. Now I’m confused. Anyway, here’s a family friendly smokebeer for you. Smokin’ Hemp Porter. It’s OK! Final smokestack rating = 4 smokestacks out of 7.
