COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Derived from a Breckenridge recipe, Porter’s Pride is an imperial porter featuring 200 pounds of dark chocolate from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. Brewed for presentation to all GABF 2012 medalists, and collaborated by several representatives of Colorado Brewers Guild members. Collaborators chose to brew a porter-style beer to honor Danny Williams, the Brewers Association’s GABF cellar master and “beer porter”, who died in January 2012.

Very rich, chocolatey porter with strong malt notes. Served in a bomber, my fiancé had to give me her half because it was too chocolaty (she doesn't like chocolate, unless it's Nutella. Hmm, a Nutella beer, I could see that) and I was happy to oblige. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at thirdeye11’s birthday party. Brown color with a white head. Aroma is full of chocolate with some nice roasted malt notes. The flavor is more of the same. The chocolate and roasted malt notes work well together. Creamy. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

A very rare beer indeed. Had tis at the ratebeer winter holiday gather in late december. Nice dark pour from a bomber. Fairly sweet in the aroma. Yes, certainly a porter my any imagination. So many porters taste like stout but this is truely on style; milder, mannered almost like a thicker dark lager or a very light schwartz. Does get a little bitter towards the end of the session but never gets in your face, easy to enjoy. Trying to be a baltic but never gets there. Not bad overall.

(22oz bottle) clear rich brown, ring of creamy tan bubbles. Nose of mushroom, earth, lightly toasty, and bits of creamy chocolate. Weird. Taste of mushroom, earth, rich and sweet, weird beer.

From a bottle at Wynkoop’s Beers of the Year 2012. Clear brownish amber, no head. Nice chocolaty aroma with some subtle smoke, and light caramel. Flavor was weird but entirely loveable, with some pale grain maltiness, caramel, subtle choco tones, with a light nuttiness throughout. Most unique porter I’ve ever tried.
