COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hoppy twist on the classic English Porter. Our Black Marlin Porter stands out in a town known primarily for its IPA’s. We craft it from a unique blend of roasted and crystallized malts that give it a smooth, chocolaty, caramel profile. Then toss in a healthy dose of American hops to serve up full-bodied flavor worthy of its San Diego roots.

Editor’s Note: Old versions were 5.9% abv

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.

Silky smooth porter, lots of chocolate, roasted malts, tinged with blueberry. Quite sweet but not overly so. A sipper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught @ Haket. Pours dark reddish blackish brown with a frothy mocha head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is subtle and malty with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, moist soil, burnt cookies, charred wood, cocoa powder, hay and burnt cereal. Taste is bitter, tiny sour and malty with roasted malts, burnt wood, moist soil, cocoa powder, dark roast coffee, hay, biscuits, burnt toast and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is round, tiny watery, tiny roasted astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is bitter with roasted malts, moist soil, cocoa powder, dark roast coffee, burnt toast and hay. Nicely drinkable...

Toasty malty coffee aroma. Smooth, creamy roasted malt flavor. Light on the palate. Slightest bitterness on the front and ends with roasted nutty aftertaste. Very easy to drink. I really like it.

Kroney (154) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 27, 2013
pours dark mahogany with a thin light but creamy tan head. aroma is mostly rusted malt and bitter chocolate with some floral hop undertones. taste is similar, with the dark bitter chocolate coming through the most. nice mouthfeel with some lingering bitterness, but mostly from the roasted make and chocolate, not the hops. good beer.
