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.

blankboy (6787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
[Bottle (11.2oz)] Pours a very dark amber-brown with a small diminishing frothy beige head. Somewhat nice aroma of dark chocolate, dark fruit and dark malt -- simple but pleasant. Watery flavour is also chocolaty along with roasted malt, light hops and a dry, short bitter finish. Light to average bodied. Too thin, a good but not great Porter.

nimbleprop (6355) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2013
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.

Erzengel (6242) - 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

Braudog (6069) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark and opaque, but awful thin, no head. Little to no aroma, and this drinks with a vapid body, just a bit of a chocolate flavor. Far too thin. Too bad ... (#5290, 10/13/2013)

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