COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Elwood (3161) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Serving: Bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a medium brown color with a medium head. The nose has nice roasted malt notes with a little earthiness. The flavor comes across as traditional. A light sweetness up front with a bit of roasted malt, light earthy hops, and mineral notes. Light to medium body with average carbonation. Serviceable.

Cantabrian (816) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 20, 2013
Brown porter, with plenty of charred bitterness, roasted malts, Karamalz, brown sugar, cigarette butts, used coffee filters and that citrus, herbal tea hoppiness. Not much of red fruits in it. More like the boredom of a Dunkel. Not bad for a Middle East beer but, letís face it, it is not memorable either. Lebanon, tick!

(bottle) clear dark brown colour with a small brown head; aromas of soy sauce, roast, simple but pleasant roasty flavour; competent porter

Bottle. Pours very dark brown with tan head. Nose and taste of flat cola, chocolate toast, cocoa, toasted grain and toasted old coffee grounds. Lighter medium body. Tad bit watery.

12oz bottle pours a watery, translucent mahogany brown with a quickly fading ring of tan head. Looks like flat Coke. Nose is reasonably nice, licorice, roasted grains, coffee grounds, brown sugar. Flavor is OK, mild brown sugar, licorice cola, some milk chocolate toast. Flavors are decent, but the flavor and finish are very watery.

Nice caramels and that welcome porter bite, all this porter lacks is a little more depth on the palate. The Lebanese brewers responsible for this beverage should be proud. This brew has room to grow but is a tasty malty example of the variety. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark cola color. A one-finger head of light mocha shading is formed, fading to a thin film rapidly. Not much lacing is left on the glass. S: Thereís a bit of dry chocolate on the nose, backed by very mild hopping, some fruity esters (even a hint of tartness), and some toffee. The aroma is a bit plain, but far from bad. T: The start is quite fruity, before developing a chocolaty middle and vaguely mineral-esque finish. Itís easy drinking nature offsets its simplicity somewhat. M: Itís a bit thin, and perhaps even watery. The empty finish is very disappointing, though it has a positive effect of creating fantastic drinkability. O: Not a bad attempt at a porter - however, it still needs some work. Making it a bit more flavorful would be a great start, but I at least enjoy how drinkable it is.

11.2 ounce bottle from my beer-of-the-month club. Pours almost black with a decent biege head. Aroma of malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and a touch of smoke. Pretty good.
