Riot Releases Vortex Robust Porter

Riot Brewing in Chemainus, BC has announced the latest edition to their expanding line-up: the Vortex robust porter.

Previously only available on tap at the brewery and a few select pubs, it will now be available in 650ml bomber bottles from select liquor stores in the Cowichan Valley and North Island.

I tried this one on tap at Smith’s in Victoria last month and really enjoyed it. I wish I could get their stuff down here.

The Vortex porter: Dark roast malts, balanced sweetness, coffee, chocolate notes… that was a short description! There is however, nothing short-lived about stopping into a brewery for a beer: it’s a vortex where minutes become hours and empty glasses build up into towers.

6% ABV; 29 IBUs
