COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Built with lots of chocolate malt and black strap molasses to give this beer backbone. A hint of juniper blends nicely with the chocolate to become a new and unique flavor you can only find at the Alameda Brewhouse. The Porter stands up to the Artichoke, Spinach and Herb Dip as well as the Brewhouse Nachos.

On draught at Alameda Brewhouse. Dark brown color with tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and some grassy hops. Taste is roasted malt and dark chocolate with some citrus hops. Taste is just a little too bitter on the finish, yet nice overall.

5.1% ABV, 39IBU Very smoky with lots of molasses, hints of juniper added a nice touch. Hadn’t tried anything like it before.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Slight smokiness with roasted malt. Black and opaque appearance with a taupe foam. Smoke and roased woodiness quickly give way to an acidic finish. Oily and slick body. A decent porter if you are a fan of the style.

neepsntatties (1205) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 30, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Colour... nearly black with no head. Nose... cola, mint, hops and lightly roasted malt. Palate... moderately frothy, coffee, bitter around the edges, slightly musty and tangy.

boFNjackson (4129) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Tap @ their brewhouse... Poured black with a thin, light brown head. Toasted, cocoa cereal grains on the nose. Thick, foamy, well carbonated palate. Smoked malts, creamy caramel sweetness, and a earthy, soy quality -- maybe somehow from the juniper. A dark coffee and hop bitterness in the finish.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a black color with a small tan head. Roasted malty chocolate aroma. Roasted malty chocolate and coffee flavor. Has a roasted malty chocolate finish with some hints of coffee and hops in the aftertaste.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Not sure if this is the place for this rating. I think they’ve taken the juniper out. Poured black with thin fast dissipating beige head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and malt. More chocolate in the flavour, with coffee and caramel notes. Lingering flinish, coffee and hop. A very worthy porter

I had this beer in one of its early forms when I visited Portland. When I ordered it and the waitress asked me if I wanted it "regular or from the nitrous tap" I thought to myself, "I am coming back to this place." When I tasted it, I wanted to cry. I know the current version isn’t exactly the same, but I just don’t care. I do not go to Portland without eating at the Alameda Brewhouse. I even bought a T-shirt last time I was there (because I’m nerdy like that) and was wearing it downtown in Seattle a couple weeks later. A guy on the street says to me, "you from Portland?" I say no. "Good beer though, isn’t it?" he says. Ahhhh, the power of beer.
