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.

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.

Keg at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels. Black with cream head. There is a chocolate character from the start, lightly lactic with a fruity, sultana note alongside. There are fruity, oily hop notes thrown into the mix. Quite easy drinking and smooth. A pretty decent beer.

355 ML from Epping Cellars Dark cola color with some ruby highlights. Light tan head, good collar that sticks around a while. Nose is roast, licorice, coffee, milk chocolate. Taste is roast, earth, coffee, milk chocolate, and lots of licorice. Medium bodied, a bit thin in stretches but great lingering bitterness. Well balanced. Does not knock your socks off but very solid and well crafted beer.
