COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Look into the heart of the history of beer and you will find the porter. The details can be sought out on your own, just know that you are drinking the true working class style of beer. Porter made it through two Industrial Revolutions and revived in San Francisco in the 60’s thanks to Anchor Brewing Co. The beer is meant for pub drinking and not meant to be a super sought out beer. The chocolate notes, velvety mouth feel and burnt caramel notes are solely malt derived. We added some smoked paprika to add a slight note of sweet smoke in background. In our humble opinion Porter doesn’t need any help so it’s just to make this a more unique beer.

maley1 (852) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
Dark brown pour with small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, slight coffee, cocoa, faint smokiness. Taste of roasted malts, espresso grounds, faint nuttiness, hint of smoke and a paprika dryness on the finish. Light bodied, slightly watery mouthfeel, fizzy carbonation. Very average at best.

Ernesto987 (4311) - Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2015 Draft at brewery, this was great, light smokey spicey flavor really added another dimension to this, very impressive. The porter had great roast, very tasty, kept going back for more, the paprika oddly enough increased the drinkability

3fourths (8382) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2015 Dark brown with a short off-white head. Char / ashy roast and burnt popcorn huskiness aroma impression. Medium body, chewy, lightly sweet, coarse malt astringency and simple chocolate malt / roast finish. Papery and starchy coarseness on a goopy (but not overly sweet) malt body. Thankfully the smoked paprika doesn’t show up, but maybe it would add some intrigue to this simple porter.

dresden (1049) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
Black with a light tan head that laces really nicely. Aroma is smoke but it’s really nice and light, not the burning tire you get in so many others. Flavour isn’t strong on smoke but it’s the, a really nice porter with a little smoke on top.

beerbaaron (1497) - Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Draft at brewpub. Black with a creamy beige head. Light body, maybe a bit thin. Quite Smokey actually. Could easily be a smoked porter. Dry cocoa. Very mild sweetness. Not much roast. Quite easy drinking, flavorful porter.

BiiruBierBeer (388) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Smells and tastes like a pretty standard mildly roasty porter except for the mouthfeel is a bit more watery than I care for.

[ Keg ][ Arizona Wilderness ][ 4oz ][ $1.50 ][ Mini Snifter ][ 4/11/14 ]
>> Deep brown pour, huge 360 lacing. Gray foam. Huge chocolate and coffee nose, robust for style. Taste is clean, low abv coffee stout, slightly ashy, low body. Taste is clean but ultimately very thin. However for abv the aroma is great and bitterness is balanced, no sugar.

Ibrew2or3 (7260) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 2, 2014
Pours with a dark mahogany body that has a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, caramel malts, a bit of nuttiness and then a dash of burnt malts. The taste has big dark roasted malt notes mixed with a slight burnt malt note, faint chocolate and caramel like malts. There is a bit of spiciness floating around in there back in the background but I’m not able to pin a descriptor to it. Nice roasty forward Porter.
