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.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2003 This is a great Porter. Thick, but not unbecoming a porter, slightly sweet but dry to the finish. Black as night with amber shallows. You can smell this baby as it pours from the glass and never fails to make me salivate. By far my personal favorite. Locally as inexpensive as corporate hop water. Try it and you will love it!

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JAN 27, 2003
When in the mood for a porter I would say this is a pretty decent one. Very dark, medium body, a hint of smoke but no overwhelming characteristics. quite easy to drink for such a dark brew, enjoyable.

joet (2156) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JAN 26, 2003
Dark roasty, medium to light medium body, very dark, very estery -- apples, medium effervescence, gets fruitier as it warms, could be a bad bottle? Dunno. It's good but not phenomenal.

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2003 Sweet subdued roasted smell, and a taste that is exceptional. Combines the right amount of heft, bitterness, and sweetness to leave my mouth feeling jumpy. Tasted next to Anchor and Left Hand porters, the hops really stand out. Pine, dark fruit, and some spices show up, and really contrast the milk-like smoothness of the other two porters.

Very floral hoppy aroma, not as much malt as you might expect. Silky smooth, yet robust body with good complexity and a pleasant roasted, moderately bitter finish. A very good porter. Thanks MOboy!

jsquire (3423) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2003
This beer had a great head for the entire glass. Very dark, with only hints of light around the edges and a faint, roasted aroma. Great roasted grain flavors with a nice caramel sweetness. Very clean, bitter finish. A very good porter.

UPDATED: JUL 2, 2003 beuatifyl brown color, malty smell, hint of roasted malts with a hidden smokiness enjoy this porter very much

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2003
gorgeous pour, dark as a prune; one can imagine it might once have been a deep mars red, but it baked too long-- though the edges still remember the roasted reds. creamy head is lasting and grocery bag brown. modest nose of smoked brown sugar, pumpernickel, dates... a tasty sweet but light bodied porter, a tinkly carbonation presides over woody dark malts and small garnishes of burlap coffee sack, anise and minimal hop bitterness.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2006 I tried this quite some time ago and never got around to rating it. I am a porter fan and this one is ok, but slightly over-hopped...a little too bitter.
