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.

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear dark brew that glowers deep red when held up to the light. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is wonderful sweet chocolate, hint of coffee, caramel at the start and a little butterscotch in the finish. Very good!

Loads of butterscotch in the nose. Nice!! It was also full of chocolate and light fruity tones too. Poured a clear dark brown. Tastes like butter, cocoa, milk chocolate, and awesomeness in a bottle. Well done. Thanks for sharing JB.

12oz bottle pours a two-finger sandy head that dissolves in a minute over a deep brown translucent body with frosty lacing. Aroma is bread and toasted grain, some basement earth and hints of dark chocolate and dried berry. Taste is mild salty and lightly sweet and umami with a lingering bitter finish. Body is full with strong carbonation and thick texture that leaves a sticky residue. A superb beer with extra points for organic ingredients.

Another fine offering from Eel River. It has a somewhat thin, very dark brown colored body with a thin, off-white head. It definitely looks the part of a porter. The aroma is great - jam-packed with very nice chocolate malts and a touch of roast. Its nose is full and robust. The flavor is of fresh cocoa with a semi-sweet roasted finish. The body is relatively thin and it’s really easy on the palate, making for a very easy to drink beer. It tastes traditional and very well-brewed. Very nice!

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 14, 2012
bottle. Medium brown, sienna highlights, creamy ecru head. Aroma is wonderfully malty, bread crusts and brown sugar and chocolate. Chocolatey palate, background notes of brown bread and caramel. Smooth, with a nice balancing bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable, tasty porter that appeals to me on many levels; for one, it has the nose of a rich doppelbock, and for another, it rises above the tendency of many porters to be stout-clones. This has lovely character and drinkability. A pleasant surprise.

Bottle. Strong aroma and flavor of dark chocolate and another sweet vinous flavor that I cannot quite pinpoint.
