A robust porter, the initial taste brings pleasant chocolate and roasted coffee flavors and is bold yet creamy. As it warms, it opens up to a pronounced sweetness and rich caramel note.

PorterPounder (6529) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2015
San Antonio, TX - on tap at Busted Sandal tap room. Deep dark brown leading to black pour with a thin eggshell white head clinging to the edge of the glass. Creosote and licorice in the aroma. Robust flavor with strong espresso notes, bitter unsweetened chocolate, a touch of chocolate. Thick mothfeel with a solid chalky mouthfeel. Glad I got a full pint of this rather than the sampler.

Beerenberger (1581) - Fischer, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Aroma of dark fruit, with some floral notes. Pours a thick inky black with a robust espresso head and no lacing. The taste follows the nose - raisins, leather, a floral quality, with a touch grain and chocolate in the finish. Full body and medium carbonation. Nice round mouthfeel. Overall, a very satisfying and tasty porter. Will drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
