Brewery Ommegang (Cooperstown, New York) has officially announced that Ommegang Smoked Porter is hitting shelves and taps now as the brewery’s latest Limited Edition offering.
Created as “a nod” to the classic English-style beer, Ommegang Smoked Porter is “brewed with subtle additions of smoked malt and a touch of Saaz hops to add additional depth and character to an otherwise traditional English brew.” This approach yields a medium to full bodied, deep dark brown Smoked Porter with aromatic and flavor notes of rich cocoa, burnt sugar, roasted malt, sweet caramel, and subtle smoke. Although this offering may be a bit of a departure from the brewery’s more Belgian-focused beers, Ommegang Smoked Porter’s “characteristic aromas of chocolate malt along with caramelized sugar are reminiscent of many things Belgian, and of all things good.”
Ommegang Smoked Porter is available now for a limited time in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft. You can find this Limited Edition brew at fine beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, New York, and throughout the rest of Brewery Ommegang’s distribution area. Prost!
