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.

Small creamy beige head atop cola body. Aroma is rich, roasty coffee, and chocolate. Taste is roasty coffee and chocolate, finishing mildly coffee bitter. Medium creamy body, light carbonation, watery on the tongue.

JCW (1275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2003
Dark brown(maybe black)colored. Carmel mixed with chocolate aroma. Very chocolatey flavor with some smokey or roast flavors lightly mixed in. Full bodied for a porter. Sweet finish. I like this porter.

jazz88 (2579) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 16, 2003
Bottle. A full deep brown color that you can see through in the light. A strong chocolate and roasted malt aroma. The flavors are rich on the palate. The dry sweet chocolate flavor dominates. A fine porter.

It has a subtle aroma, and a good thick head. The flavor is a pleasant mix of roasted smoky chocolate. It is also very smooth. I liked it.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2003
There was (of course) some porter prerequisite roastiness and some nice smoky sweetness reinforcing the malt on the palate. My only qualm is that there seemed to be some astringent hints in the aroma and in the malt, distracting me a quite a bit. That’s one of those things that will kill a rating faster than Trent Lott’s career.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2002
This was a fairly good porter. Excellent roasted taste backed by appropriate hopping. Very palatable and drinkable. A fine beer.

Sweet and fruity in both aroma and flavor, carmelized. Pretty mild and easy drinking. Very coffee-like with some chocolaty undertones.
