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

Bomber pours coffee-black with a thin tan head. Not much on the nose, but lots on the palate: Coffee, black licorice, bitter chocolate. The high hop profile in this porter really gives it a nice roasted malt/bitter finish. Overall, an excellent American-style porter.
