There’s just something about a beer served on Nitrogen. Nitro beers create that silky smooth texture and creamy head often associated with Guinness, and can even alter your perception of a beer, subtly changing the flavor and mouth feel.
Stouts and Porters are the two styles most often associated with Nitrogen beers, but other styles can work well on Nitrogen too. The Boston Beer Company agrees and has been experimenting with different nitrogen infused beers for the Samuel Adams Nitro Project. Now, after three years of experimentation, they’re ready to bring those beers to you.
The time has come once again to “Remember, remember the 5th of November, the gunpowder, treason and plot. I know of no reason why the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot.” Black Raven Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor) can’t think of a reason either so, back once again for 2015, is their Gunpowder Plot Nitro Porter. Releasing tomorrow, November 5th, of course, this coffee, cocoa and bourbon-infused ale comes in at 6.9%.
