Listen, I don’t have a lot of time Mac! I need you to take this review and get out of here! Keep it safe! This week I’m taking Christian Moerlein’s OTR Ale to “Sleep With the Fishes,” if you catch my meaning. That’s right, I’m going to drink it. The perp opens with a very grainy aroma with strong citrus notes. The beer pours a very tangerine orange and has a thick, sudsy white head. The head, brief, is followed up by some slight lacing but continuous carbonation. The beer itself is very mild on the front, tasting slightly fruity with a touch of caramel. The hop is there, expressing a very definite bite, though the flavor is not represented as powerfully. The backend is where the beer shines with powerful biscuit flavors and slight notes of tea leaves. The entire beer has a medium body with powerful carbonation, making it less than chuggable but very drinkable. The culprit is a definite session beer as a year-round offering, but don’t expect it to be pulling any large-scale flavor heists during its Lovers have often turned to the mystical effects of aphrodisiacs to get the fires of passion burning. Strawberries, oysters, blood sausage, and a multitude of herbs and spices have been used to increase the urges of the less than libidinous. So imagine my excitement at hearing the name of Intercourse Brewing Company’s Blue Ball Porter! Unfortunately, this brew left my tongue limp. The beer pours very darkly with a brown head that quickly dissipates. The bouquet of this beer is very fruity, reminiscent of raspberries with some slight toffee notes. I knew I was going to have a rough ride at this point. The first sip came meekly in of blueberry and very, very slight coffee. This taste remained pretty static throughout providing very little difference from aft to end of the throat. The body itself is what ultimately killed it, with a mouthfeel more akin to a lemon-lime soft drink than a thick roasty porter. While this is an attempt at brewing creativity it is a misguided one. Before doing something as ballsy as mixing fruit into a naturally sweet beer, Intercourse should have perfected their porter. As it is, this brew is a partner nobody should seek.
