Product Details
NB's hometown gives its name to our robust porter kit - an assertive black ale dominated by roast-coffee and chocolate character and hop bitterness. Toffee-like maltiness and citrusy hop flavor are in there as well, with a medium-full body and lingering roast malt/hop bitterness before a bittersweet finish. We like spiking barbecue sauce with a splash of this porter; it's also great with strong cheese like sharp cheddar or Stilton.

one of the best
I have a Porter recipe that I entered in the Iowa State Fair competition and took first place with it. I have since switched to this recipe as it is a very drinkable ale that can be enjoyed by a wider range of drinkers. It is very smooth with a definite hop profile and seems to be less filling than a lot of Porters out there. Brew this up and enjoy.

Revised review
Okay, I'm giving it four stars this time to avg my score to 3.5 stars, which is what I would score it at if I could. I like this brew, I just don't love it like I thought I would. I brewed the extract version back when I was a rookie home brewer and loved it. It had the chocolate with a nice little coffee finish. I'm just not getting much (if any) coffee this time. We hit the OG on the money, did a yeast starter and had a strong fermentation. I think it would make a great base recipe to experiment with. As I said before, perhaps the addition of black malt and/or roasted barley. Maybe some flaked barley. That's why I am revisiting this review as I think there is great potential here for those brewers like myself who like to tinker, tweak or write recipes to fit their own personal tastes.

Not too sure...
Certainly a good, smooth porter. I prefer my porters & stouts to be a little thicker and chewier than this one. The chocolate is there, but that's about it. I would add 8 oz of roasted barley and 4 oz of black malt to this recipe to add some roasted coffee character.

PGB ALE (Porter Gone Brown)
I have purchased several extract versions of this beer with excellent results... Over the last 3 years I have upgraded my system to all grain. After I made my first all grain i discovered that the beer was too light. More like a brown ale. NB sent me a replacement and I made it again and it turned out excellent. Then I recently bought another kit and it too turned out to be a brown ale... Like they forgot the dark grains? Anyway NB is sending a new kit and I will try again. Not a bad deal if you like brown ale but its not my favorite. All in all NB is a good store and they stand behind their mistakes... I just wish who ever is making my kits remembers to follow the ingredients list! I'm giving it 3 stars for NB standing behind their products.. I am really frustrated that I did not get the beer I ordered twice! If I did I would give them 5 stars. This beer taste its best at 3-4 months... Try adding 48oz. of toasted cocunut in the secondary for 2-3 weeks for a great flavor. Compares very close to Maui Brewing Co. Coconut Porter.
