COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
All of us here at Epic are happy to introduce the newest exponential libation—Blue Law Porter. This is a medium-bodied porter to which we added blackberry puree at the end of primary fermentation and finished it with spruce tip extract harvested from Blue Spruce trees found on the grounds of Utah’s State Capitol building. It has a roasting profile with a fruity tartness and an aftertaste of resinous spruce.

Rrauth (1115) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Draft. Not much aroma that I can place. Not quite black. I taste way too much roasted coffee for my liking. I don't get much fruitiness. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. Clear dark maroon color, thick tan head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of lightly sspiced rich dark cocoa with a shot of espresso. Taste is coffee grounds with bitter cocoa and a hint of subtle and sour spice. Tasty.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bomber from Beer Run. Pours a dark brown color with a large creamy tan head. Fair head retention and nice lacing. Aroma of spruce, chocolate, faint berry notes. The taste is strong tart berries, mild chocolate, mild spruce. A bit of spice. Medium bodied, a little disjointed. Not great, but a nice experiment.

emacgee (3957) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Ok, weak pour. Color of charred wood with a significant amount of light showing on the edges. One finger of wispy tan head shows. Nose is no good, kind of convoluted and ’butty’ with hints of blackberry and almost no porter character. Evergreen comes through just a tad. Flat flavor, some bitter grain shows through with a touch of spice from the spruce and some berry character. A noble effort I suppose.

Gription79 (2227) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. The aroma is sour/tart, pine, fruity, slight infection, chocolate. The flavors are more of the same. This is an odd combination of ingredients. Not very easy to drink. Gets better as it warms.

Sledutah (4276) - Utah, USA - DEC 7, 2012
22oz bottle (release #1) from the brewery
Appearance: Pours dark brown with a medium sized beige head and some lacing
Aroma: Roasted coffee, bakers chocolate and dark berries
Taste: Roasted malts, dark roast coffee with a bitter (spruce?) earthy finish
An interesting change from a regular porter, nice.

BelgianBeerGal (3102) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Release #1 bottle from the brewery. 5.9% ABV. Pours a dark brown with a big, foamy tan head that disappears quickly with nice lacing. Interesting aroma that leads with some roasted coffee & baking chocolate and finishes with some spruce/pine bite. The berries appear in the flavor with some tartness. Nice but a little thin overall.

douglas88 (5787) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Bomber from the Brewery. Pours a dark brown, near black color with a medium tan head. An odd nose of spruce, butterscotch and some fruit. The raspberries in the flavor come across more as sweetness, some dry cocoa and coffee, more sweet butterscotch and spruce. Something odd happens with the interaction of spruce, berries and porter. A good beer altogether.
