Lemons Lemons are one of my favorite flavor enhancers but you need to be careful of the white pith. If you cook the pith, it turns very bitter. Cooking the rind or pulp is fine but never use the pith or seeds. I remember discovering this disturbing fact cooking chicken piccata for the first time. I thought I could enhance the flavor by cooking lemon slices in the sauce but instead I got a bitter taste I couldn't correct with sugar.
I don't drink a lot of porters or stouts, but when I do, this is one of my favorites. Infused with coffee and vanilla, this porter is heavy on coffee with notes of vanilla to brighten your taste buds. The coffee is aggressive so it's not for everyone. You will taste bitter but also sweetness. In fact, there are so many different flavors in this porter at different times during the trip from lips to stomach that I found myself enjoying the journey with every sip. Still, I think a 22oz bottle is better to enjoy with friends as this beer can be a bit overpowering.
