COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Decker Porter was brewed in honor of our busing brothers across the pond. The beer has a silky chocolate character, which is balanced with British East Kent Golding and German Magnum hops. Combine that dark brown pour, velvety tan head, and decadent malt character, and you’ll find yourself doubling up on this brew for twice the enjoyment.

Aroma is meh, notes of cola, old dark toadt, nut shells, bad coffee and a hint of raisin and some sweet chocolate syrup. . Body is sort of fuller creamy carbonation.Flavor is a bit better than the aroma, notes of chocolate syrup, brown bread, cola, nutts and some old coffee. Meh.

12oz can pours with a nice dark brown body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up malt sweetened roasted malts, chocolate and then a thin layer of molasses and caramel malts. The taste is pretty thick with malt and molasses sweetness that sweetens up the roasted malts and chocolate as well as earthy coffee goodness. In the background I get some spicy black licorice. Very nice.

Can provided by the beernut. Consumed with gusto by myself. The thing about a solid English porter iz that it shows a good deal of reserve. This porter does just that. In the description it sounss as if it may be a hop bomb in porter’s clothing. It is not. Well built and round in all the right places. Just the right amount of twang. Hmmm sounds like a girl i picked up in a honky tonk back in college.

chinchill (2769) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2015
12 oz can with a canning date of 16 Feb. 2015 on the bottom served in a snifter. Excellent looking with a generous size, creamy/bubbly tan head that leaves the glass speckled. The aroma has ample dark roasted grains with hints of hops and chocolate. Flavor: perhaps slightly more hoppy than average, this has a mildly bitter flavor with some spiciness from the hops. Feel: medium-full body; nicely smooth; medium carbonation.

Can. Great beer. Best canned porter I’ve ever had, not that I’ve had many. Minimal aroma. This beer is all about its smooth creamy flavor.
