“Take a walk on the Dark Side with Bounty Hunter, our Choc Coconut Porter. It’s everything you’d expect – chocolatey, coconutty, dark, rich and full bodied. This is a surprisingly easy to drink beer that hits you with coconut and chocolate aromas from the minute you take that first sniff. Balanced with our fantastic Voyager malts and enough bitterness to keep it feeling like a beer. Take a walk on the dark side..”
Glassware: English pint.
Appearance: Deep cola pour with an ultra fizzy thumb of tan foam disappearing in front of our eyes. It fizzes away to a ring which provides no lace whatsoever.
Aroma: Very alluring. Definitely getting that wonderful fusion of chocolate and coconut lifting out of the glass. Behind that we’re finding much more traditional porter qualities like rich leather, subtle beef jerky, toast, dates, glazed cherry and vanilla. An all round lovely nose.
Flavour: Picking up some cherry notes on entry followed up by the delicious coconut, chocolate and vanilla. A very mild roast forms late in the piece giving rise to a hint of coffee then eventually landing on a toasty finish with coconut on the rear.
Mouthfeel: Thin but not watery. Somewhat metallic texture with the co2 spot on for a porter. Only 5.1% AbV so staying quite true there as well.
Overall: Without a doubt it’s TRBC’s best offering so far. It’s fun yet it still sticks to a pretty traditional porter recipe. Perfect for this fence-sitting Autumn weather!
