COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gran Sport is a robust porter marked by its finesse and distinct malt backbone. Aromatic notes of chocolate and roasted coffee compliment the full-bodied mouthfeel derived from a healthy addition of oat flakes. Dark. Roasty. Malty. Splendid.

Pours brown with an off-white head. Nose is cocoa, chocolate, roasted nuts, and some fruit quality. Flavor is similar with a medium body and roasted nut and almost dark fruit sweetness. Enjoyable, quaffable porter.

B33RUNER (1) - rogers, Arkansas, USA - MAR 4, 2015 does not count
smooth porter in taste/aroma and mouthfeel. chocolate/coffee tops the palate. Very underrated porter I would place ahead of the likes of founder or sierra nevada. pours and appearance on the dark side in comparrison to its peers.

jbruner (2806) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Pours an opaque brownish black from the can with fluffy tan head that leaves good lace. Aroma of nice chocolate and roasted malts, hint of earth and fruity esters. Taste follows, a little less on the chocolate, and a little more on the soy and earth. Solid porter, creamy mouth, mild carbonation, very nice for the style, but nothing mind blowing.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 29, 2013
On tap at Main St. Tavern in Broken Arrow. A - Pours pretty much black with 1 finger of tan head that holds average retention. S - Roasted malts, dark cocoa, coffee, toasted nuts. T - Follows the nose but everything is more pronounced. Roasted malt, loads of baker’s chocolate, creamy, hints of berry fruit, fresh coffee grinds, finishes dry and roasty. M - Heavy side of medium body, low carbonation, silky and smooth feel, dry on the finish. Flavors are full and dense. Great finish and very smooth drinker. A great well rounded porter. Always glad to see this on tap. Serving type: on-tap 03-18-2012
