Taddy PorterNovember 30, 2009
My son David turned seventeen recently. He got to choose the restaurant for dinner that evening and, given his love of good beef that meant Angus Barn in Raleigh.
I chose a perfectly cooked (medium rare) filet mignon and, though Angus Barn has a world-renowned wine list, paired it with a Samuel Smith Taddy Porter. Wow! What a wonderful combination. The beer poured very dark with a full brown head. Somewhat malty with a slightly toasted flavor. A nice fit with the smoky flavor of the meat. Perhaps a bit thinner in the mouth than you’d expect. Good food, good beer, celebrating with family and friends… isn’t that what life’s all about?
