Moon Gazer Winter Porter is a collaboration brew between The Norfolk Brewhouse and Jon Stringer of Ramsgate Brewery.
This is a porter with a bit of a twist without being full on ‘craft’ and taking it to the extreme. The aim was to brew an approachable porter with rich, complex flavours.
Winter Porter is a smooth dark ale brewed a blend of 5 malts, including an oak smoked wheat malt, which add complexity and a hint of smokiness. Specialist de-husked Black and Chocolate malts add the dark colour and help to reduce the astringency and harshness with the backbone being Maris Otter.A hint of orange adds fruity bitterness with coriander adding a touch of citrus and spice on the aftertaste.
