GORP (Good old raisins & peanuts) trail mix was a combination of clean complimentary flavors appropriate for being out on the trails. With GORP beer, we evoke recollections of fun flavors of the trails by adding peanuts and chocolate to robust porter base that is then fermented on black raisins.

Ernesto987 (5578) - Arizona, USA - APR 13, 2015
UPDATED: APR 16, 2015 growler, this one was very tasty!! Rich roasty dry porter was critical to complement these sweet adjuncts without being too cloying. Delicious grapy and figgy flavors throughout. yum!

DesertDevil (685) - Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2015
Waxed flip-top growler. Delightful aroma of roasted salty peanut, granola, brown sugar, sweet dates, and a brief hint of maple syrup. Semi-occluded muddy brown in appearance with a thick tan ring dotted with large bubbles. The taste features an odd blend of flavors with peanuts, roasted corn and cauliflower, dark chocolate, warm milk, faint nutmeg and ginger, light molasses, and a strange root beer and sugary raisin finish. Chalky texture. Not bad, but the flavors never seem to quite mesh.

Draft at bistro on bridge. Pours pitch black with a medium sized brown head that dissipates quickly. The aroma does not have a significant note of dark fruit or raisin.. A touch of nuttiness. Typical roasted malt and dark chocolate overtones. The taste is medium bitter, chocolate, light coffee.

reggiedunlop (3657) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2014
Pours black with a medium creamy mocha head. Aroma has roasty malts and dark fruits...just a touch of nuttiness...A faint raisiny sweetness. Flavor follows suit and adds layers of char and more nuttiness that almost hints at PB. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a roasty/nutty finish.
