Better not Stout, I’m telling you why

Onward and upward we are now delving into door number seventeen to uncover…

Eight Malty Nights, a Chanukah themed chocolate rye porter from Lompoc Brewing.


What did Adam say on the day before Christmas?
It’s Christmas, Eve.

Lompoc 8 Malty Nights

Eight Malty Nights pours deepest black brown with just a little mocha coloured head that dies down to a light skim on the top of the glass. Lots of chocolate on the nose. First sip is sweet chocolate, malty with some roasted grains. As you drink the flavour stays pretty true to the first sip focusing on chocolate and malt tastes. A lighter bodied beer with a bit of chewiness imparted from the rich flavours. There is a slightly bitter roast coffee kind of finish. Overall a really nice porter and the incorporation of rye makes this one a good fit for Chanukah (thanks to Chris for pointing out my erroneous Christmas reference!).


I am giving Eight Malty Nights eight malty candy canes.
