Appearance: blackened browns under a voluminous tan head both velveteen and mousse-like. Fades in the shape of a doughnut. Swirls with a 360* collar and more smooth puff.
Nose: roasted and dry. Brittle chocolates, earth, dirt, wood, espresso beans. Tobacco and cigar leaf earthy and spicy. Used wood barrels. Black root. Mexican coffee. Dried leaves in the back.
Palate: malted milk balls with malt powder in back. Wisps of tartness in with the meaty dark fruits, craggy roots, and fresh tobacco leaf. Finishes dry and woodsy. Creamy mouthfeel is quite pleasurable. Black root and licorice in the middle. Dark fruits in the breath.
Final Thoughts: intriguingly complex, far more than I was expecting upon venturing in. Easily a good cigar beer but even if cigars aren’t your thing, having a Puppy’s Breath Porter is always a good and tasteful idea.
