The Alcatraz Porter is actually extremely close in odor and taste to the Alcatraz Stout. Drinking the two side by side is confusing, with a glance trhough the Porter's glass being the only distinguishing feature (the Stout is blacker than black). The Porter does have less of a chocolate taste and is more mild.

When poured, this Porter had a small light brown head with large sized bubbles that quickly diminished. The lacing was fair with this brew and the body was brown in hue. It had a mild coffee aroma and a medium coffee flavor from start to finish. The taste was smooth which I enjoyed very much.

I spoke with the brewer of this fine porter at the Brew-Ha-Ha in Indianapolis. He called it the "Prison Porter". This brew poured a large head of fine to large sized light brown bubbles and a dark black brown bosy. It had a strong malt coffee aroma and a medium strength coffee flavor. It was very smooth and was my favorite beer at the event! I enjoyed talking with their brewmaster as I tatsed this fine porter. It was really nice to be able to call his beer "the Best" just after I was caught saying that another brewer's beer was the "Worst"! Needless to say he didn't appreciate it!
