Mornington Peninsula Porter

Mornington Peninsula Brewery (Tribe)

Released October 16, 2010

When Crafty first visited the brewery, Mornington Peninsula's brewer AG - ever the optimistic Saints fan - said their first specialty release would be a porter called the Premiership Porter. Things didn't quite pan out for St Kilda but, he says, "thankfully it's not taken on any sour characteristics (unlike the brewer)". Instead, he says it possesses a "rich, smooth mouthfeel" that's "long in the palate" and has chocolate and coffee notes "from areshole to breakfast". And there we were thinking it was Pies fans who were uncouth... It was the first beer to appear on tap outside the brewery and is now a permanent fixture on the brewery's roster. Crafty tasted a later batch mid-conditioning from the tank and it truly is big on the creamy chocolate notes. Surprisingly 6%.
