A superb porter, hearty & dark. This one is a staff favorite, made with pale, crystal, Munich, chocolate, and black malts. The darker malts give Coal its color and rich flavor. We use Target and Willamette hops to yield a very subtle hop flavor in this porter. We cellar this beer for close to six months before releasing it on the thirsty throngs of fans.

Bottle gifted to me from jcwatts or Eileen or maybe Dean?? Poured an okay looking super dark brown almost blackish body under a fizzy medium sized light beige head. Aroma of burnt toast, vanilla, slight chocolate sweetness. Fizzy carbonation with a creamy end on the mouthfeel over a medium body. Flavor of burnt toast, some old light coffee, milk. Meh nothing special here.

Very mild porter with some very light flavors. Just under flavored and way too mild for my taste. Little to no roastiness and flavor.

On tap at $3 Dewey’s. Pours a dark brown color with a light tan head. The aroma is of coffee, notes of chocolate, malts, and caramel. The flavor is pretty smooth but bland; roasted malt, chocolate and coffee flavors. It’s relatively sweet, and goes down pretty smooth.

Opaque black/brown with a light head and tiny dots of lace. Taste is roasted malt; it adds black coffee midway through the palate, providing a subtle, but effective, bittering. Simple, straight-forward, quite drinkable.

Poured as part of a taster at the brewery. This porter has a classic porter appearance in the glass. I like coffee a lot, but this overemphasized the burnt/smoky flavors in a typical porter and there was no dark chocolate or underlying maltiness to help balance this out. I’ll stick with the classic Fuller’s London Porter for the same price.
