A dark, full-bodied and drinkable beer, Galloway Porter highlights rich roasted chocolate and coffee-like malt flavors and aromas. It has a very mild hop addition so that the chocolate malt flavor can shine through, 5.4% alcohol by volume.

This is a very decent porter. Has the requisite coffee and chocolate, dark character, and a thickish palate.

Bottle, from a Utah State Liquor Store. Im a big fan of the Galloway breed, but I think the picture on the label, - with the white lost on the horizon and no black hindlegs to lock it - does not do justice to its uniqueness. And neither does the beer, unfortunately. I wanted it to be extraordinary, but I got no more than a feeble aroma and a faint flavour of roasted malts, with some nutiness and ashes, and a slightly hoppy bitter finish. The beer feels rather watery. And that should not be a reason to have it only in large bottles. Id love to come back in a few years and re-try a much improved beer.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bomber. Dark brown pour with a frothy tight tan head. Aroma is roasty, but also something akin to lemon cleaner (but mild). Medium to slightly light palate. Decent, but not great.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. This has been in the cellar for several months. Pours with a dense tan head and huge cocoa aroma. Chocolate, coffee, caramel, soft stone fruit. A nice, easy drinking porter.

EithCubes (5215) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bomber. Nose lightly sweet, sweetness over roast, shade of sour/tart with choco and faint fruit. Pours a deep red-light brown with a foamy tan head. Taste lightly tart, medium sweetness and just enough bitterness for balance, light and gentle roast with mild chocolate, hint of browned nuts toward the back. Crisp light-medium body with a nice soft roast aftertaste, very gentle warming but alcohol wrap-up is top notch. Hops are mild but produce a nice accent. Well made and strong all around.

sfontain (842) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2013
22 oz bottle, $3.99 World Market Columbus. Clear black pour; giant rocky eggshell head becomes a large ring and can be somewhat revived with swirling; very heavy alcing. Aroma is weak; "black," nutty, roast, ash, dark chocolate, yet not much coffee. Flavor also weak; nut, roast, ash; dry finish. Velvety carbonation but a little on the thin side. Pretty lame porter.
