We always love a good experimental brew here at Terrapin, but the salty-sweet combo of peanuts and chocolate has us all salivating a little more than usual. This brew, while smooth and mellow, still manages to challenge your tastebuds. The porter base is dark and smooth, with enough backbone to support the richer chocolate and peanut butter additions. It’s even dry “peanuted” with brewery-boiled green peanuts! Here’s to the candy-loving kid in all of us!
We set a portion of every batch of General Washington's Tavern Porter aside in freshly emptied bourbon barrels shipped straight from Kentucky. There, the beer ages for three months absorbing vanilla, oak and bourbon flavors from the barrel walls. The end result is our Washington's Reserve, a smooth, aromatic porter with hints of dried fruit in the finish and vanilla on the nose.
This robust porter stays true to its British roots with grains and hops chosen to keep with old brewing traditions. Each taste delivers a complex blend of subtle coffee and almond notes with a rich toasty flavor throughout.
