Formerly known as Party Porter

As a style porters aren’t the biggest name in beer (not really close though they should be) but this brew is a big contender among culinary journalists, reviewers, and beer geeks. It’s got a big dark bouquet of chocolate, coffee and caramel and has a smooth finish. A Powerhouse of a Porter.

Alot of coffee taste. A little sour in the middle. Very thin head. But great, but at least I crossed off Arkansas finally. Thanks Erin.

Seemed a bit flat and without the characteristic strength of flavor that I expect in porter. On tap. Need to try again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taste at the brewery. Black and clear, of course. Laces well, irregular head. Tastes "thin", slight aroma, not particularly impressive, although you can take a little hops. Doesn’t sit poorly on the tongue. I think it’s the best Diamond Bear has to offer.
