Robust Porter
Stone Fence Porter is a dark chocolaty, robust ale with spicy floral notes and a bold malt undertone. This full flavored porter is brewed in the tradition of a farmhouse porter and its label displays a dark green English style barn with a grayish stone silo.

Held to the light, it’s a beautiful ruby red. The chocolate is more bakers than milk. The fine carbonation tickles the tongue - this may be unpasteurized. The coffee is more like dregs than fresh - but the bitter aspects ameliorate the effect. Seems to be an elusive hint of cinnamon that ebbs and flows. Very nice porter. Another great creation from Coast Range - and kudos to whoever developed the recipe.

Aroma is mild of roasted malt. Dark and opaque with a little layer of tan head. Rich and sweet flavoring with light touch of lightly roasted malt and coffee bean. Good porter.

Bomber. Thanks, Tever! Jet black. Thick, bubbly tan head that falls to just a film before too long. Humongous coffee and roasty nose. Probably the most coffee-like porter I’ve had. Big coffee on the attack, too, and plenty more throughout the palate. Rich roasts and almonds and a bit of semi sweet chocolate everywhere, but more and more the closer the finish gets. Finish lands dry and nutty and a little puff of hoppy. This is fantastic stuff. Thanks, Tom!

Aroma starts with a strange fruitiness,almost like Mogan David Concord wine,then settles into a pleasant chocolately maltiness as it warms taste is a delicious full dark chocolate pudding and slight coffee taste,slight sharp carbonic bite,nice roasted finish,thinned a little at the end ,but still one of those unexpected great discoveries you make when trying something new

Bottle from Darkelf. Pours a black color, impervious to light. A large brown head forms, made up of various sized bubbles and slowly fades to a smaller layer. Great lacing is left behind. Aroma is rich, full of roasted grain, chocolate and a hint of coffee. Body lets me down a bit feeling watery at times. Taste is packed full of roasted grain goodness and a more than ample hop bitterness. Quite a tasty porter, if it had a little more body to it this would be fantastic.

Trade, thanks. Pour was black, like day old coffee. Tight creamy tan head. Nose was coffee and caramel and vanilla and some hops. Very nice dry mouth feel, with a bitter ending leaving a cramy after taste. Good hint of peat-smoke lingers. Nice porter here folks.

Thin head of light brown bubbles. Sweet and roasty aroma with some licorice and a bit of milk chocolate. Color is a very dark brownish black. Very smooth flavor. Some carbon, dark roasted grains, sweet caramel and some dark fruit. No grittyness what-so-ever. Light to medium bodied. Finishes slick and sweet with a lingering roastyness and milk chocolate. Actually a very easy drinking and very smooth porter.

Bottle shared by moejuck: Pours a very dark brown with a medium sized tan head. Aroma, dark fruits, some chocolate, earthy, with some roasted coffee notes. Flavor, roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, some dark fruits, an earthy bitterness on the finish. Pretty nice stuff.
