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.

[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.

12 oz. single, $2 at Binny’s. I’d think more people would’ve rushed for this one to be able to tick off the heretofore unobtainable Lebanon on their stats. My experience with beers made in both Israel and Palestine have found they didn’t travel well (in a friend’s luggage, anyway). But this has come over much better. A roasty malt smell, maybe more apt for a stout, perhaps. Black body with bubbles clinging to the sides like a cola, pours a thick head that dwindles away. Taste is also a bit more roasty than I expect for a porter, though not a stout. A little sweet, though. Mouthfeel is kind of light and thin. Still, many overseas beers without a lot of abv don’t come over here in this decent of a shape.

Pours a dark black. Nose of some coffee. Taste of some coffee and chocolate, and some bitterness on the finish. A little watery, and not great balance - an average porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle received in trade from RobertDale, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a solid black with a decent sized creamy tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Wow that is a bit of smoke and burnt sugar in the nose. Chocolate and caramel provide support in the aroma with hints of earth as well. The flavor is a bit less remarkable than the aroma. Mild caramel and chocolate notes with hints of smoke and earth. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a watery somewhat oily mouthfeel. Not a bad porter if not a bit on the smoky burnt end of the style. I would have loved a bit more body, and some creaminess in the mouthfeel.

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