Lakewood Brewing Co. of Garland, Texas was thinking of the lucky few who receive a holiday bonus check. Maybe you’re not one of them, but with Holiday Bonus festive Porter you can feel like it.
Holiday bonus or is dark dark brown with a very light tan then head. It’s smells of sweet burnt candy sugar, caramel malts and chocolate. The flavors overflow as it warms. Semi-sweet chocolate, orange, berries, all with a bitter roast malt porter finish. It is 41 IBU, but the chocolate roast malts up the bitterness of the hops. The alcohol registers at 6.6% and seems fair.
Lakewood Brewing has only been in operation since August of 2012, yet are producing an interesting line of beers. Holiday Bonus was a nice treat for a porter with a twist.
