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.

oh6gdx (20392) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 20, 2009
Bottled (at some pub during the pub crawls in Copenhagen (Maybe Örsted?)). Very deep ambery brown colour with mediumsized beigeish brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, some smoked wood, quite strong roasted coffee as well as some mild caramel malty notes. Mild fruityness also lurking. Flavour is quite much the same in a rather big way, even though in a good balance. Has some late hoppyness. Quite dry.

fiulijn (14770) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2013
Draught at the Yard House, Honolulu, HI
Dark brown color, with some red shade, and small head. Some dark caramel and roasted malt aroma, with hints of oxidisation. Lean mouthfeel, pleasant roasted malt flavor, still delicate, with a hint of fruitiness and freshness from the hops; quite strong bitterness, but overall balanced.
Well brewed and pleasant.
