Will impress people who don't like dark beer with how much flavor there is.February 24, 2013Excellent PorterMade this about 5 weeks ago using s-04 yeast, and kegged it with 2 split vanilla beans. Nicely balanced roastiness and mouthfeel. Everyone is going nuts about it. I wish I had come up with the recipe myself! This is an easy recommendation for anyone that likes nicely balanced dark beers.July 22, 2013great taste fool proof recipe. ive done five kits.Having done five kits of power pack porter I can say the taste is great and and the easy to follow instructions give great results.August 11, 2010great, full flavor but not heavyI tend to like bigger beer but I do not like a bitter beer. This is a full flavor beer with a thick head similar to a stout but smoother.January 13, 2012Great taste.It was a great tasting beer and full of flavor. I would brew this beer again.April 4, 2012Terrific Beer KitI've brewed this beer three or four times as an extract kit, once as all-grain and I've got another all-grain ready to brew in a couple of weeks. You can't ask for a better porter than this. Balanced, full-flavored, maleable. I use different adjuncts each time, ie: dark fruit, citrus zest, sugars, etc. and it always comes through a winner!October 9, 2012Velvety smooth and oh so drinkable. If you're a Porter fan, you can't go wrong!Very satisfying blend! One of the best base porter pre-mixed all grain recipes I've used. I split it in half and added a homemade cocao nib, vanilla bean, toasted coconut extract during the secondary fermentation of one batch. Quite lovely. I served it at a dinner party and it went fast. This is by folks who are, "no thanks, I'm not a beer drinker" kind of people. I would caution however that there is a reason it is called "Power Pack"...! It goes down sooooo easily, but you WILL feel the punch.... Prudence might be your best friend here. I used the Omega London ale yeast. I believe it has a higher attenuation and hence the higher alcohol level. Be patient with the fermentation time period. I believe this brew would benefit from a longer secondary period as it was heavily carbonated. Have fun with this one. It's a winner!March 26, 2018Purchased
