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.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2006 Growler from the brewery: Initial sniff has a hint of whiskey. Black in color with just a hint of purple, held up to a flashlight and a small, fading light brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate with coffee and cream and a hint of licorice as it warms. Flavor starts with a little coffee followed by bitter sweet chocolate and a little whiskey in the finish. Light to medium bodied and smooth with modest carbonation.
