a dark, rich, indulgent brew. It owes its taste to select Goldings and Magnums hops. This generous blend is then naturally conditioned in the bottle or keg an additional three weeks to create a roasted flavor.

Bridgeport brews another fine winner of all my tastebuds! As with many of their other beers, it is a consistent, full-bodied taste that is expected and savoured. No strange undesirable hints of wierdom, and a good clean palate with which to start on the next.

On nitro. Pretty pitch black with creamy tan head. Mild roasted malt aromas. Really smooth, medium bodied, straightforward porter. Not too smoky or roasted, let’s you appreciate the dark malts. Great clean beer.

Keg at the taproom, PDX, 09/11/14. Black with a moderate tan swirl and edgeing. Nose is light roast, earthy cocoa, dark toffee notes. Taste comprises chocolate, toffee, vanilla, light roast. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, smei drying close. Ok porter, simple but ticks the style boxes.

"fairly textbook from the english standpoint. maybe a little thin for the american standard, but it’s got a good roasty chocolate and coffee nose with an additional hint of molasses and hops in the flavor."

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 (Tap) A unique porter with quite a bit of coffee flavor and aroma. Not a great porter but it is distinct at least!

On tap at Bridgeport, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out notes of coffee and a touch of coffee. Flavour is light, with dry cocoa powder and a touch of coffee. Decent porter, but rather boring.

On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown with a mocha cream head. Nutty, smokey, roasted malt, dry, some bitter chocolate and coffee grinds, clean finish, mild carbonation and easy / pleasing to drink. Well done.

tmrmwel (1138) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2013
On tap @ Bridgeport Brewing. Pours black with creamy finger thick mocha head. Aroma is burned malts, coffee and smoke. Body is average with a quite light texture and soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with roasted malts and caramel, but not too much more.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep chocolate hue with a medium white head. A sweet nose of light roast some dark fruit. Pretty big flavors for how light it is. Sour metallic flavor, chocolate, mostly dry. Good.
