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.

11.2oz bottle. Brown-caramel body. Thin beige head. Medium bodied, smooth and easy on the palate. Kind of like a schwarzbier. Nice cocoa schwarz.

Erzengel (4893) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2014
Very dark in the glass, malty-sweet nose. The beer starts more sweet than bitter, more smooth than dry. For my taste a bit too sweet and to undefined. The mainpart is sweetish-smooth, no deepness, no real dryness, no real roasted hints. The aftertaste is a bit viscous, not very deep in aroma, sweetish-smooth and only slightly roasted.
Not a very good stout - and much too sweet to be refreshing. --> 7/11/7/7

Very light porter. Light bitter finish. Not much else, but it’s the best Lebanese porter I’ve had. Bottle shared at Brony tasting.

11.2oz bottle in an English pint. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, light chocolate and smoky notes, plus a hint of bitter malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent porter.

Leather nose. Mahogany, headless. Medium body. Rich leather flavor, but surprisingly, no other nuances. Not a typical porter, but by now I have learned that this brewery doesn’t do typical. Unique and delicious.

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.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique June 2013. This is quite a good porter with some vanilla in the aroma and a dark brown colour.

mansquito (3908) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Associated Supermarket, Bushwick sixer ($15): Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is light porter. Body is pretty light. Slightly sweet. Nice amount of roasted malt. This is a pretty average porter, but definitely good considering where this is from. The best of the 961 beers that I have tried.
