This robust porter is the same base recipe as our Urca Vanilla Porter, just without the vanilla! A rich, full-bodied ale with hints of chocolate and coffee. Real smooth! 5.3% abv.

Pours a very dark brown with a brown-tan head. Lightly smoky roasted malt nose. Smooth mouthfeel that becomes mildly astringent. Fruity and mildly smoky flavors.

Pint from nitro tap at the brewery. Pours rich and dark with the picturesque nitro head. Aroma is very chocolatey with hints at caramel. Itís plenty sweet enough, I canít believe they add vanilla to it for the Urca. Palate is rich with a milky, chocolatey sweetness throughout. I definitely want a little roast with my porters and that is absent here. It is clean and balanced though with nothing offputting.

Pours near opaque black with tan head and no lacing. Aroma of chocolate, alcohol, licorice, and cough syrup. Not exactly a pleasant smell. Tate of creamy milk chocolate, alcohol, and licorice. Medium body.

A bland nose is proabably the death of this brew. It is a nice smoked, toasted malt flavor. Not bad.

On tap at the brewery. I think this is the vanilla porter sans the vanilla, very good still.

On tap at the brewery in Aurora, CO. Pours a black colored body with a finger-width, creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is caramel with a moderate chocolate and a light roast backing. A touch of licorice and dark fruits. Flavor is better. Lots of caramel and medium sweet chocolate up front with a bit more of a roast backing. Licorice spice in the middle with a light dark fruit before this finishes mostly dry with a light bitterness from the roasts and light earthy hopping along with a balanced caramel and chocolate touch. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, not a bad porter. Caramel, chocolate, roasts, and a light licorice dark fruit.

Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of caramel, biscuit, roast, coffee and chocolate, slight dark fruits but fairly simple. Taste is nice and simple, notes of roast and coffee, touch of biscuit, caramel and slight anise, hints of chocolate, finishing fairly sweet.

onceblind (7496) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2011
On nitro tap at the brewery. Heavy dark brown with a light khaki head. Smells of brown malts, a touch of chocolate, some nuttiness, a touch of licorice and or molasses. Nice nose. Taste was much the same. Dark malt, a bit of smokiness, light chocolate, faint nuttiness, quasi light body. Not bad, with a nice nitro texture that wasnít awkwardly smooth.

Nitro @ brewpub. Deep black appearance with a big milky, light brown head. Creamy, mild chocolate malty, light hoppy aroma thatís pretty tame. Creamy mouth feel. Dark bittersweet chocolate, earthy hoppy, light espresso flavor. Pretty good porter to put on nitro.

Nitro and Dry Dock - been waiting for this, as I hate vanilla beers and have been avoiding the vanilla porter - turbid brown beer - sits somewhere in between a robust porter and traditional British one - fairly tart and semi-dry - notes of cocoa and cherry - a light bit of woodiness - some semi-sweet chocolate - tart, almost tannic finish - pretty good.
