4.7 / 5.011 ReviewsGood for " I don't like dark beer" peopleVery smooth with complex tastes. 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, 2013vanillaGreat porter _x000D__x000D_I even added vanilla beans and bourbon which helps complement the porter great _x000D__x000D_i will def get again_x000D__x000D_November 18, 2012great 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
