COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Winter Porter is a dark, black ale brewed in the style of a robust American Porter. It is a balance of roasted malt flavor (from black and chocolate malts), hop bitterness and citrusy hop aroma (from Cascade hops). It is 5.2% alcohol by volume.

On tap at the brewery. The porter started out as a nice and rich porter, but the exceesive dry hopping is too much and ruins this beer for me.

Plenty of roasty qualities in the aroma and flavor. Chocolatey notes come through nicely as well.

(Bottled 10/30/02): Dark brown bidy with small tan head. Aroma is moderately sweet, roasty, chocolate, fairly rich. Taste is mild sweet, roasty, some chocolate, light vinous. Medium body. Nice beer, wonder how much better it would be if fresh.

Roasty aroma. Thin head with not much retention. I can taste black malt or barley. Has nice burnt flavor that adds to bitterness. Malty and delicious. Only complaint is that it is a little on the dry side and would like more alcohol.
