Stovepipe Porter brewed by Otter Creek Brewing - Middlebury, Vermont

Stovepipe Porter brewed by Otter Creek Brewing - Middlebury, Vermont

Stovepipe Porter is toffee-brown with a sizable brunette head that releases aromas of dried, roasted barley, walnuts and flowery hops. The strong flavor bursts onto the tongue with deep roasted coffee and chocolate. And understated caramel sweetness settles on the tongue and balances the natural grain astringency. This porter's hop flavors are unassuming, with mild bitterness and sloft floral, spicy flavors. The brew is medium-bodied, reserved in alcohol and clean in its finish. Malts include: 2-row, Munich, Caramel 60L, Carapils and roasted barley. Hops include: Nugget, Cascade and Willamette.

Otter Creek Stovepipe Porter


Beer Review by Beer Advocate:
Appearance: Almost black with dark brown hues. The head is a light tan foam in colour and stays quite creamy and sticky.

Aroma: A bold spicy smoke flavour (jerky-like) up-front, followed by light roasted and burnt notes with a touch of coffee meet up with a slight herbal hop aroma.

Taste: A fine drying roasted malt that holds some espresso flavours and a hint of bitter acidity. Smoke flavours are all over the brew, in varying degrees throughout. A good dose of malt sweetness makes its way through, only to be knocked back down by a fresh, semi-tangy hop bitterness. Lingering burnt malt bitterness fades in the end with some smoke. The more you drink, the more it grows on you. A lovely porter, no over use of roasted malts and an excellent use of hops -- perfectly balanced.

Otter Creek Brewing
Otter Creek Brewing is a microbrewery located in Middlebury, Vermont. It produces three lines of beer: Otter Creek Craft Ales, Wolaver's Certified Organic Ales, and "The Shed Brewery". In March of 1991, Otter Creek brewed it’s first Copper Ale®. Otter Creek Brewing, originally opened its business at 616 Exchange Street in Middlebury. Four years later, the brewery expanded and moved down the road to 793 Exchange Street, where it resides today. With a 60,000-barrel capacity and plenty of room to grow, Otter Creek Brewing distributes its year-round and seasonal beer to fifteen states in the mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions. In 1997, Wolaver’s became the first USDA-certified organic brewer. At first a satellite brewery, Vermont’s organic lifestyle fit the product that was envisioned, so Otter Creek and Wolaver’s merged. The brewers worked with the organic barley and farmers in the area, and together they created an “organic beer market.” Since 2002, all Wolaver’s Organic and Otter Creek Ales have been brewed in Middlebury, Vermont.
