In today’s video we drink Nickelpoint Brewing Company’s Chocolate Cherry Porter which “combines the roasty coffee and chocolate notes of our robust Porter with cherries aged in bourbon.” They aged the beer on coco nibs from Videri Chocolate Factory in Raleigh. They tell us “notes of chocolate in the aroma are definite with the flavor rounded by a slight subtle sweetness from the cherries”. Nickelpoint is the original craft brewery in the Five Points neighborhood of Raleigh which has attracted several other breweries in recent years. They place special emphasis on quality control in the brewing process that is not found some typical microbreweries.
