Hogwash Hickory-smoked Brown Porter brewed by Fullsteam Brewery - Durham, NC


Hogwash Hickory-smoked Brown Porter brewed by Fullsteam Brewery - Durham, North Carolina        

Bacon beer! We house-smoke malted barley over hickory wood, imparting a sweet, subtle smoke to our hickory-smoked brown porter. Depending on your comfort level with smoked beers, you may find Hogwash subtle or overwhelming. Try it with North Carolina barbecue for some smoke-on-smoke action, or go for the Trifecta of Awesome: bacon, beer, and chocolate!
     

    
Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Another great Fullsteam beer that favors intrigue and nuance over flash and intensity. Pours a common deep brown color with glimmers of red shining through and a meager cap of foam on top. The aroma is uncommon, however, with a smoothly-blended combination of smoke, a bit of nuttiness, and a light malty sweetness. The flavor is even more distinctive, with quite a bit of caramel sweetness being consumed by a sweet, woodsy smokiness. The soft carbonation keeps the flavors from becoming syrupy and helps the beer glide across the tongue. 
 


Overall, the flavor is certainly smoke-forward, but the "meatiness" is delivered with a delicate touch rather than a heavy hand, which takes this beer away from something that could come across as gimmicky and instead makes it interesting yet highly drinkable.

In the past few years, North Carolinaís beer selection has flourished with beers around the world: Belgian dubbels, tripels, and quads; English bitters and barleywine, German lagers. Amazing craft beer from US breweries establishing regional traditions and styles: the West Coast IPA phenomenon. Hearty Wisconsin lagers. Experimental beers from the Northeast.

But we have yet to develop a Southern craft beer identity.

Fullsteamís mission is to craft this identity. To create a distinctly Southern beer style that celebrates the culinary and agricultural heritage of the South.
