White Flame Brewing Company - Weakness, Chocolate Vanilla Porter


Is it worth drinking? Yes!

Drinkability: 8
Smoothness: 8
Bitterness: 0
Flavor: 8

This delicious porter was brought to me once again by my gracious friend Dave Holland. Weakness, is an incredible chocolate porter that isn't overwhelming in chocolate flavor. There are subtle hints of vanilla in the finish. It's quite potent, but won't knock you over. It's a well balanced beer, and you can tell that this brewery takes pride in what they do.

The story behind the brewery is quite fascinating, you can watch the video below or check out their story at whiteflamebrewing.com . I like how they operate, all of their beer is only available in their brewery/taproom/restraunt. They are very small, with a small brewing setup. I like this because I think traveling to breweries, or having great friends that live close and will bring some hard to get beer is part of this "Craft Beer Explosion" that they speak about on their site. If you get chance to get near Hudsonville, Michigan stop in, and take home a "Crowler" or two!
