Dry Dock Brewing will release Chocolate Raspberry Porter in 22-ounce bomber bottles today at 2 p.m. at the Canoe Room, the brewery's small taproom in its North Dock production facility. This beer will be available exclusively at Canoe Room through December 20. Brewed with dehydrated, seedless raspberry powder from nearby Ticklebelly Desserts and cacao nibs, the "dark brown porter has rich flavors of chocolate malt, coffee bitterness, and subtle ruby notes," according to the brewery.
