Bell Cow Milk Chocolate Porter

Amazing how you can really taste the milk chocolate in this Porter, tastes like cocoa beer to me. Pretty nice but not one I'd drink all the time. — 23 days ago

Sharon it was! A little darker than the vanilla Porter, definitely one to just sip.

Standing Stone Vineyards

Finger Lakes Chardonnay 2017

Fresh, bright Chardonnay from one of the oldest vineyards in the Finger Lakes, an 8-acre plot on the Eastern slopes of Seneca Lake planted in 1974 and recently acquired by Hermann J. Wiemer, the region’s top Riesling producer. Amazing find! — 4 days ago

Einstök Ölgerd

Icelandic Toasted Porter

Solid black base with cappuccino frost. Fine bubbled spring snow-melt-on-medium-range-mountain lacing. Just shy of sweet, chocolate nose with coffee dusting. Cocoa shell, sprouted barley grain toast, dark rye, medium grilled beef loin. On the palate, cocoa nibs, dark chocolate shavings, mocha grind, with a zippy chocolate effervescence throughout. Top-notch porter, with a balanced body and great depth in a fine porter. — a month ago

I found this all over S. Florida. From Boca to Jupiter. Einstokbeer.com has a beer locator by zip code. Might help.

Porter Creek

Old Vine Mendocino County Carignane 2015

No nose. Bold, dark blackberry with medium spice. — a month ago

P'tit Max Morgon Gamay 2015

Nose has deep, ripe black cherry, mashed red cherry, old roses, baking spice (light) and dry earth. The cherry nose is quite overpowering, very intense.

Palate has sweet black cherry, under-ripe red cherry with mild tannins, sweet spice on the trailing end of a very long finish. Fruit is rich and silky, but still somewhat tight after a 6+ hour decant. This bottle still needs years, revisit post 2022+.

I am always delighted when drinking bottles from any of the Gang of Four, but their top-tier bottles are always the most special and unique. I think at a 10-year birthday, this bottle will easily rival some of the best Pinot Noirs to the north in Burgundy. The best in Beaujolais generally need many years to come together, Morgon is no exception, needing the most cellaring for satisfaction, in my experience. Take note this wine comes from a plot of 90+ average year old Gamay, in only a 2 ha plot (just under 5 acres in USA speak), not many bottles will come from that effort. (It wasn't even made in 2016 due to low yield after the frost.) Seek, have patience and be rewarded.
