COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No other beer shows off what malts can do in a beer better than porter. Certified Organic Porter uses a complex blend of five malts that compliment and highlight one another in a harmonious mixture. Only one addition of imported Pacific Gem hops is used to provide a balancing bitterness without introducing any other hop character. While decidedly in the robust porter category, Certified Organic Porter has none of the harsh character people often associate with dark ales. Instead, what one finds is a rich, smooth beer with suggestions of chocolate and just a hint of coffee. So smooth and malty, this porter will convert even the non-dark beer drinker.

New in Town!
Pours a dark amber brown body with a small off white head. The aroma has hints of French vanilla coffee, and chocolate. The flavor also has some bitter and toasted chocolate malt notes along with some raisin and fig. The palate is fairly luscious… this is a nicely brewed porter!

IndianaRed (3743) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Bottle Poursdark reddish brown. Not black like some of the style. Virturally no head but fine lacing. Dark roasted nut and coffee aromas. Yes, coffee flavor is most prominant. Taste is a bit thin but quite good. Slightly sweet. Smokey and coffee. Feel is agan, somewhat thin and plain. Carbonation is low, almost flat. A nice soft finish. Not my favorite porter but pretty good.

Hoss (607) - Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2004
A very nice Porter with the usual and standard flavors. Nice malt tones with not a lot of hop as so many west coast brews feature.

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 4, 2004
Man can somebody say chocolate milk? That is what the nose and palate smell and taste like, nice dark brown to black body with a tan frothy head that last. Medium carbonation and not too chewy.

Tap@Eel river. Not too shabby. Toasted malt, caramel and nuts, some roast. Decent length of flavour.

DomiNate (123) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Dark, coffee look with a coffee aroma. Smoth, soft head. Hazelnut came out in the aroma. Bittery front and then a smooth chocolatey back. Much like mocha in the end. Very good porter. Nice.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2004
Dark brown, slighly off white, creamy head. Spotty lacing. Heavy malt aromas. Chocolate, roast, coffee, and a bit of mocha in the mix. Hops are very faint. Hazelnut comes out in the flavor. The roast is strong, the chocolate more subdued, and coffee stands out above the other malts. The hops lead to a finish of bitter coffee. Creamy palate, and a thick body. Not bad.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 30, 2004
Dark brown tawny color with light head and low carbonation. The aroma is metallic with some bad hops, light roast and a watery body. The flavor has some chocolatey notes and some more sour roast with TONS of astringency. Finishes watery and bland. Puckering dry.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 1, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2010 Rerate (3.0): I am not a much a fan this time around, there is a twangy lactic tone and chalky astrengent character I am not really digging. The nose and palate are not that deep or interesting either. -2 AR, -1 App, -2 Taste, -1 Palate, and -3 Overall

Original Review (3.8) : Deep brown with ruby highlights that produced a good creamy tan head and very good lacing. The aroma hints of hazelnut, smoke, coffee, caramel, milk chocolate, floral hops and dusty yeast esters. The taste starts smoothy malty with lots of mocha, nutty and caramel notes. Good undertones of mild bitterness, smoke and sublime fruits. The finish displays a coffee bitterness. The mouthfeel is lush and soft for the style with a chalky finish. Nice. Very good complex nature with balance. Many organic beers fall short in taste, this beer is not one of those. Recommended. Thanks Joe for the bottle!
