BJ's Brewhouse restaurant chain provides a number of house-brewed beers and a dizzying selection of menu items.
Their P.M. Porter is a nitrogen conditioned beer which is nearly black in color. Its tan head, as is typical with nitrogen conditioned beers, is thin but lasts the life of the glass.
The flavor is rich and chocolatey, with some caramel. It is a bit sweet, with a very mild hops presence that balances things out. The nitrogen smoothness gives it a rich, dark chocolate mouth feel.
All in all, a great porter and one I look forward to having again. I sampled it at their Tuttle Crossing location.
My Rating: 8/10
