Genesee Brew House Salted Caramel Chocolate Porter

Genesee brewing good beers? Or at least non-Genny beers? Come on! No way! I went to college in upstate New York so I'm aware of the expectations.

Brewmaster Dean Jones is apparently trying to create some innovative new beers including Genesee Brew House Salted Caramel Chocolate Porter. This is a Pilot Batch English-Style Porter brewed with Hedonist Artisan Chocolates. 6.5% alcohol.

Beautiful aroma, and my wife said the same thing! Big caramel with a hint of coffee and bittersweet chocolate chips, wow!

Flavors are similar. Caramel and chocolate dominate early, pretty sweet but there is some salty contrast. Rich and creamy. Some coffee shows at the finish along with some bitterness, but I still wanted a little more bitter balance. Really nice flavors. From aroma to flavors, like a big chewy rich brownie! Yum!

Crappy, blurry photo, I know!
