The 961 Porter is a take on the traditional Engish beer that originates from the pubs of London. The Porter is brewed in the classical manner, using dark roasted malts with a rich addition of Crystal malts, and is hopped with English varieties. This beer, with 5.6% ABV, has complex aromatic notes of caramel, coffee, raisins, chocolate, nut and toast.
Ingredients: water, barley malt, hops, yeast.

mcberko (10577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out cardboardy notes, along with light toasted malt and oxidation. Flavour is pretty much identical. Not very pleasant at all. Oxidized and cardboardy. Drain pour.

colui72 (419) - HONG KONG - JUN 7, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2015 Very poor appearance (it looks like coke) for a highly carbonated ale mysteriously called "a porter". Sweet caramel taste, and a disgusting nail polisher taste. Nothing else.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a deep brown color with a billowy head of a cream colored foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a ton of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is big a roasted malt with lots of sweeter smells of chocolate, molasses and caramel. Along with these aromas comes some lighter notes of a bit of vanilla and a hint of a bready smell which overall create a very brownie like aroma to the brew. Quite delicious. Taste – The taste is a bit differentiated from what one may expect from the nose. It does start out with a decent showing of a roasted malt taste, but unlike the nose would suggest, the taste is much drier then would be expected. There is a little bit of a caramel and molasses flavor upfront, which fade a bit as the taste advances, but which are replaced by some chocolate flavors. A little bit of a vanilla and some light grain and hay come at the very end, leaving one with a somewhat drier, but not too dry, dark cake-like flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side for a porter with a carbonation level that is rather average to slightly higher. A thicker body and slightly lower carbonation would have likely been better as they would have accentuated the dark and roasted flavors much nicer. Overall – A decent, not overly sweet porter. Not a bad one to try, but nothing too outstanding either.

leosanches (12) - - MAR 30, 2015
Cerveja escura e brilhante, porém puxada pra uma acobreado profundo e sem espuma. O aroma é clássico das porrete, com o malte torrado e o café se destacando; também é possível toque de chocolate. O sabor é agradável e bem equilibrado entre os elementos clássicos das porters, sendo possível também sentir um toque amadeirado. O sabor lembra um pouco as cervejas defumadas por causa da presença do malte bem torrado. O corpo é leve, a drinkability boa e o aftertaste agradável com o toque de café permanecendo e proporcionando um final seco. O álcool se faz presente mas não persiste. Uma cerveja boa para se beber com carnes e hambúrgueres.
