Parallelogram Oatmeal Coffee Porter

Yay! Two of my obsessions combined; coffee and parallel 49- It’s a good day! I can’t describe to you how excited I was when I heard about this one and for a good reason, this gem doesn’t disappoint. This beer is a collaboration between the Parallel 49 brewery and the 49th Parallel coffee shop.

Parallelogram Oatmeal Coffee Porter

Size: 650ml
Price: $6.50
ALC/VOL: 6%
IBU: 23

This is by far my favourite coffee beer so far. While I love coffee beer it’s not something I crave regularly, probably because I already drink too much of coffee.

The Parallelogram smells like a mocha, much like all of the other coffee beers. It also has a slight oatmeal smell which is no surprise since it is an oatmeal porter.

This beer is very smooth and bold, it tastes like a mocha with more coffee than chocolate like it should be. It has a coffee bitterness, this is awesome because I’ve found that most coffee beers don’t capture the true coffee bitterness. It has a slight sweetness to balance out the bitterness so don’t worry it’s not like drinking a black coffee. This beer is very smooth and rich. It’s the perfect dessert to replace that after dinner mocha- or is that just me?
