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.

Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a pretty small head. I found this one to be rather heavy on the roasted malts, but in a very inviting way. The beer itself was extremely smooth and easy on the palate, though it kept up that robust malty and roasted character. Great porter.

Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate with hints of coffee and perhaps some dark fruit. Pours a brownish-black with a tan ring and no lacing. The taste iwhile lightly sweet is very pleasing. Roasted malts, chocolate, and some biscuit, with hints of coffee-like bitterness in the finish. Also just the barestest hints of funk. ( Which I like.) Medium body with moderate carbonation. A nice smooth mouthfeel. Overall, I found this to be a very enjoyable and drinkable porter. Would drink again.

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.
