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.

Pours out with a thick, fluffy beige head, which fades quickly. Aroma is fairly light, but taste comes on much richer, and finishes even better. Elements of wood, molasses, chocolate and burnt toast. Body thin, but this is all about the flavor.
