A sweet, toasted aroma rises from this porter’s bubbly off-white head. Toasted malt scents mingle with sweet caramel and a dash of sugar, while light fruity esters brighten the bouquet. The swallow also showcases Bonfire’s sweet side: Raisin flavors work through toasted grains, while dark caramel notes pool in the middle of the tongue. A touch of bitter chocolate and roasted malts briefly appear in the back, but they fail to assuage the beer’s sweetness. In the end, lasting hints of raisin leave the tongue wanting a drier finish.
