Today we are drinking beer out of the Blowing Rock Brewing Company of Blowing Rock and Hickory, the Big Chocolate Porter! They describe this beer as “an innovative twist to the traditional porter. Chocolate and roasted, dehusked Carafa malts provide a base of bittersweet chocolate and mocha. It is then dry nibbed with raw cocoa in the fermenter, and finished with a touch of vanilla bean to create the perfect balance between bitter & sweet.” This is one of their beers from the Ale House Series which consists of their ever-changing, artisan brews crafted by experimenting with local ingredients and mountain resources.
