High Water takes their original award-winning Aphotic and adds a healthy dose of cold pressed coffee from their local Stockton Trail Coffee Roasters for even more bold character. Aphotic [af 'otic] Greek: without light. Formally defined as the depths in water beyond which less than 1% of sunlight penetrates. Aphotic is a beer with a very dark side. Just one sip and you will understand the true depths of its darkness as the deep, lucurious layers of malt richness tantalize and tease your taset buds.
The American porter is a juiced up version of the English porter - more of everything basically. They range from very sessionable to big barrel-aged beers. Lots of aroma and flavor of smoke, roast, cocoa-like sweetness and with all the fullness of the hops and dark malts. Drier and more bitter than a stout, but less creamy and rich.
