Moor Porter

Pretty interesting find at the Mellow Mushroom in Charleston, SC, USA. 750 mL bottle as pictured in the BA db. Approx. $12.
Massive gusher with froth everywhere and a large amount of the beer wasted. It would have been good to read some other reviews before opening this one but either way there are carbonation problems with this brew.
It’s black with a real, toffee colored head. Very roasty, quite hoppy and in that respect it’s a typical American version of the Porter style. I’m not really keen on this type of Porter (I prefer a smooth, creamy version), but for what it is, it’s pretty good. However the carbonation is a problem and not only from the gushing point of view. Unsurprisingly it imparts a really difficult prickly nature to the mouthfeel which makes it a difficult beer to really enjoy.
All in all the base and basis of this beer is good, but the carbonation is a nightmare which ultimately de-rails the brew. Shame.
