American hops provide a smooth distraction for Payback Porter’s robust strength, which is concealed within the shadows of dark imported malts. Brewed with English chocolate malts and rolled oats, this Robust Porter pours a deep chocolate brown and is rich in roasted malt aromas and coffee flavors. With notes of espresso, baker’s cocoa, and sweet, toasted maltiness, Payback finishes with a creamy mouthfeel.
For the carnivore: Bring out Payback’s roasted malts with slow-cooked pulled pork, sweet smoked ribs, or chicken mole poblano.
Vegetarian: Complement with charred portabella mushroom burgers, caramelized onions, and buttery cheeses like Harvarti and Swiss.
For dessert: Pair with homemade chocolate chip cookies, soufflé, or bread pudding.
