Beer Wednesday – Proclamation Porter

Happy Beer Wednesday!

Thsi week, after last week’s The Poet Oatmeal Stout,  I’m happy to continue reviewing a series of deeper vegan beers with Brewer’s Alley Proclamation Porter

Brewer’s Alley, a Maryland brewpub, paired with the National Museum of Civil War Medicine to brew a series of beers using traditional Civil War ear brewing recipes.

Now, I love the Civil War and it’s military history, but the idea of a beer team-up with a museum of medicine just didn’t click for me. Now, don’t get me wrong, it’s pretty cool that I get to review a beer that had such a limited release, as it was only brewed one time, but. . .

This vegan porter was a little thin at first taste, despite the huge head that it produced in the glass. The nose was a lot of malt, but instead of toasted malt, it was almost a little burnt, right from the nose. The 5.4% ABV made it drinkable from an alcohol standpoint, but the finish was far enough off for me to find it just a bit unpleasant. It may have been ash, but maybe just a little chemical flavor. I don’t know exactly what it was that was so far off, but the finish pretty much ended the taste for me on a unpleasant note.

As much as I love to celebrate local beers (and there are more coming), I am disappointed to give this vegan beer a 3/6 on my six-pack scale. Take that 3 with a grain of salt though, because I really did want to give this beer a 2.5, but nobody is putting a half-drunk beer back in one of MY six-packs!

six pack, three beers, beer, 3/6,
