COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bert Grant’s Perfect Porter, a style of chocolate-brown ale, rose to fame during the 1700’s as a favorite refreshment of Industrial Revolution laborers including many working porters after whom it was named. Grant’s Perfect Porter is full-bodied and brewed with imported Scottish peated malt that enhances its delicious chocolate character with a pleasant, lightly smoky flavor.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle. Reddish dark brown colour with a weak head. Light aroma of chocolate, coffe and light smoke. Weak and watery flavour of little chocolate and ends up quite dry.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 15, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of Degarth. Black and opaque with a reddish hue and a small, off-white head. Very roasted aroma with distinct chocolate accents. Medium body, quite fizzy, notes of roasted malt and then an odd, artificial tang of milk chocolate. No bitterness. No real treat this one. 090407

Ungstrup (29172) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 10, 2007
Bottled. A dark brown beer with a red shine under a fast disappearing brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of chocolate, combined with lighter notes of alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of chocolate - like sauce for ice cream, combined with light notes of soy sauce.

Hoser (367) - Cowtown, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 11, 2007
A decent Porter rating on memory of course bought at John’s Market Portland and this is definitely better than his attempt at an Imperial Stout.. Page 55 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - SEP 29, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2006 Chocolaty smoky flavor, almost has a meaty or bacony flavor with a brownish black color. Head is frothy with a tan foam. Light sweetness up front with a lightly bitter finish. Slight saltiness at time. Medium body with a creamy and lively bitter finish. Good but a bit more watery than other good porters.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2006
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a fizzy quickly fading light brown head that recessed to a thin film. Nice aroma of chocolate malt, roast, burnt toast, coffee, anise, milk chocolate, and a light hoppiness. Flavor is a little thin, not much up front save for some roast and chocolate malt, but the finish is quite nice. Finish has alot caramel and hints of licorice. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with very fizzy prickly carbonation. A little lacking in texture. Overall, this was fairly nice. I really dodn’t get a whole lot of peated malt as the description says though.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Translucent with a black cherry color and a tight packed, deep tan spongy head with formidable retention and lacing tracts along the English pint glass. Aroma gives off romantic sentiments of rustic roads of chocolate, and experimental black coca-cola. A touch of dark chocolate amidst mocha brownie batter comes across the nose along with a glimpse of dark caramel accentuations. Flavor washes in and out with cocoa and a hint of black patent rations. Chocolate wafers sodden in dark chocolate milk. Roasty cocoa dusted Christmas nuts chucked from the tins. Essentially, it’s a conglomerate of easy going chocolate assortments. Carbonation detracts from the lighter bodied ale, with the use of the traditionally rustic porter malt bill seeming to serve more for color than for flavor. Light French silk chocolate frozen custard crème and chocolate flavored chex emit the most in the finish. Easy, calm stuff. Thanks for the bottle, tpkenned!

Nice, serviceable porter. Good roasting and medium to full body. Chocalate malts. Refreshing and quite drinkable. Too bad she’s no more.
