COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A multiple medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival, Coal Creek Porter has a solid and loyal following among Big Time's customers. Impenetrably dark at first glance, Coal Creek shows rich red highlights when held to the light. Its blend of dark roasted malts combines with three other specialty malts and unmalted flaked barley to give Coal Creek a satisfying roasted flavor and smooth texture. It is heavily hopped in the finish with Yakima Centennial. Original gravity is approximately 15 degrees Plato (1.060 Specific Gravity), and alcohol content is 4.5% by weight.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2005
Nice and dark brown with a red tinit. Aroma was toasty nuts and carmel malts. Flavour was carmale and dark roasted malts but a little thin. A decent bitter finish.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Dark brown with a small brown head and lace. Roast and caramel malts. Coffee or mocha. Smoky, some chocolate. The flavors, very similar to the aroma, trail off nicely with chocolate and mocha.

3fourths (8020) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2004
Deep brown, smooth texture, semi-creamy flavor... some burnt malts, nice wood flavors and a dry palate. Balanced, and overall light, with less flavor than most porters. Very smoky licorice nose. Pretty good smoke finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Ruby black with off-white head & lacing. The aroma is full of port & mocha, some chocolate. The flavor is creamy with roast & finishes a bit dry & astringent with lots of black malts.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2004
Tap@Big Time. Its not a bad porter, simple, but tasty enough. Sweetish raisin toast flavour, some roasty/choclatey flavours late. You’ll probably be coming to Big Time for their IPA’s though.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2004
Dark brown color, you can almost see through it if you hold it up to a bright light. Frothy brown head. Chocolate malt aroma and a doughy sourness. The flavor is dominated by the sourness. Bitter finish.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 27, 2004
This has some potential, however: Weak on aroma, flavor, mouthfeel, aroma....pretty uninteresting. The basics are there, they just need more amplification.

TimE (3183) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 18, 2004
Somewhat sweet and has hints of roastiness. Though I found this a little thin. It was my least fav at the pub.
