COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ballast Point Black Marlin Porter is a rich dark chocolaty Porter with a distinctive American hop character. It is nitrogen dispensed which gives it a creamy texture, thick head and a balanced flavor that is reminiscent of traditional British cask conditioned ales. It is a great beer to go with hearty foods and is surprisingly one of the few beers that goes well with dessert.

Bottle pour. Not as robust as the HF Everett, but still an exceptional brew. A good smoke aroma to it. The flavors consist of slight tobacco and subtle chocolate and coffee.
