COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Josh's translation of the Spanish description: A classic English style. Antares Porter promotes digestion, in an abundant sea of foam, with notes of toasted malt and chocolately finish. In antiquity, doctors prescribed this beer, enriched with an egg yolk, for nursing mothers. Nowadays, many remember it for that reason, but prefer to enjoy the virtues of a malty palate accented with hops. With 5.5%abv, this beer is excellent with smoked meats and seafood.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 7, 2007
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells smoky with lots of dark malt texture and some fruity elements. Tastes of pepper, some coffee, hints of roastiness and an underlying bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the thin side. Finish yields a weird aftertaste that can best be described as chewable aspirin. Not a fan of this one.

This is a beer that I think underlies the cultural aspects of taste. This beer is served cold. I mentioned how I drink my porters around 55-60 degrees (rough numbers) on average and my friends were stating anything that warm would be piss. So, I drank this as it was served. This had a roasted taste to it. Malty. A touch of sweetness. I recall it being granular for some reason and couldn’t place it. It was definitely a thin, watery beer though. I did want it to warm to get a better feeling, but drank it all before it got to the temp I am used to. For an Argentine beer, it was my fourth favorite. It was a really good beer for when I am down there, but to be honest - if I could buy it up here I would not.

northropfrye (2317) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Translucent, thin, too pale, like they took a good porter and mixed it with too much water. A touch of creaminess to this but pretty bad over all.

A light and unassuming porter. Not particularly aggressive with a thin body. A good porter for someone who doesn’t like porter.
