COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The intense flavors of dark-roasted malt in our rendition of the classic English porter are perfectly balanced by a generous and complex hop character. Bully! Porter’s robust nature makes it the ideal companion to a variety of foods, from seafood to chocolate.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2005
Brown body, lasting tan head. Light roasty, dark fruity aromas. Good robust flavors; black patent and hoppy bitterness balances a nice mocha sweetness. Malty, full bodied, assertive. Nice!

Dark brown maybe black appearance with good creamy head and lacing that didn’t stop. There was a roasted smell and hinted towards the sweetness to come. Taste was sweet with hints of caramel and some honey.

bottle from secret santa...dark brown pour, with some red tint...nice pale brown head. Aroma of sweet dark fruit, chocolate malt. Nice bright roasted malt flavor, some hop kick to start also. Middle sweetens a little, and the end finishes beautifully with a nice dose of choco-bitterness. This is a very well balanced beer, and I am very grateful to have had the chance to sample it.

Beaver (1219) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Poured a dark brown with a huge creamy tan head that had great retention and lots of lacing.

The aroma was figs, sweet chocolate and light hops.

The flavor was slightly sweet chocolate malts, figs, and coffee with a light bitter finish. A well balanced beer. The mouthfeel was creamy and velvety (carbonation just right) with a medium to thin body.

Overall, a very fine porter.

Thanks to RobertsReality for this. I drank this as I watched USC shove it up Oklahoma’s ass last night (I like liberal states and hate "Cowboy" states). Pours burnt umber with a big, creamy light tan head. Aroma of malt, chocoff, some prunes and cognac. Tastes malty, with chocoff and a slight rauchy hit at the finality. Very smooth at the finish. A very good porter.
