3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bube’s Brewery Porter pours to a beautiful deep brown to black color with a slight tan head that fades, and a soft carbonation. The nose on this beer is very nice with aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, and a slight bit of roast. The body is soft and lean with some good flavors of bitter sweet chocolate and coffee flavors on the tongue. Bube’s Porter finishes with some more chocolate and coffee up front, then ends with just a touch of roast that slightly lingers. A nice beer to relax with at the Bottle Works(the pub) at Bube’s Brewery, and a great beer to pair with sinfully delicious made "from scratch" peanut butter pie with a chocolate graham cracker crust on the desert menu.

pretty good porter nice and dark. Very smooth. Not much of an initial taste but a nice roasted aftertaste of almonds/ cocoa. freekyp said it could be mistaken for a stout and I totally agree. One of bubes best that i’ve had.

Black as night. Light brown head with middling retention. Deep smoky flavor. Medium bitterness. Lacks some of the sweetness apparent in other porters. Could easily be mistaken for a stout. May not be a good example of the style, but a great flavorful beer nonetheless.
