Beer Of The Week: Ursula Brewery Scary Stories Porter

After the upheaval and ouster of the brewer and Coda name and I was curious to see how things are shaping up at the rechristened Ursula Brewery.  I’m happy to report that the beer menu seems to have increased, with the same focus on traditional styles complemented with experimental beers, many utilizing fruit in some fashion. The Scary Stories Porter, though not fruity, stood out with its heavy roasted malt flavors and a significant cholocolate component. The roasted malt even imparted somewhat of a coffee flavor. Definitely a big beer, made bigger by the 8.8% ABV – have too many of those that close to E Colfax and one can only imagine the types of scary stories that could ensue!

Ursula Taps
Presumably the name came from the location on Ursula St. but they’ve seen to have embraced an Under the Sea theme
