COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

sfontain (845) - 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.

Cybercat (4033) - Georgia, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Pours a deep sable just a flea’s eyebrow above black with a frothy and fine-bubbled tan head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma has strong woody, nutty, malty, and subtle spicy notes. Flavor has a malty underpinning and nutty, earthy, chocolate, and toffee tones, along with woody, bitter hops. Texture has average weight but plenty of fizz, leaving a woody, earthy finish. A satisfying porter.

22oz pour - As the label suggest, I would call this a lactose porter. Much of this is dairy with some complimentary dry characteristics. Good everyday type porter that is easy drinking.

pinkzambia (1693) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle: Dark brown with a tan ring head. Funky, almost moldy garbage aroma and I’ll throw in some malt balls. Super thin body and lacking in comparison to other solid porters. Coffee and charcoal trailer. Ok, but disappointing,

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Cocoa and coffee roasted aroma. Dry roasty flavor, some biscuit and caramel coming through in the aftertaste. Moderate bitterness. Maybe a little astringent?

hayduke (3767) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 4, 2012
This came back from Salt Lake City and the State Liquor Store courtesy of my brother Rick. Poured a dark brown with a tan head and really big bubbles. Lots of lacing as it slowly settled. Nose of roasted malts with coffee and chocolate. Medium plus in body, with a smooth creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is malty with lots of chocolate and coffee. Some bitterness in the finish. Right to style and easy drinking. I liked this one a lot.

Blairgus (3335) - California, USA - NOV 2, 2012
2 oct 3012, bottle. Dark brown, clear. Nose is burnt toast, but not strong. Thin body, a bit creamy, mildly fizzy. Really bland porter. Not much roastiness, or big flavor. Just a mild session porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a fairly small head. A little bit of roasting to the nose of this, with some nice maltiness to the taste.

JK (4970) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2012
This is a good porter. Black with a good white head. Heavily roasted aroma. Lots of roasted grain in the flavor, with some coffee and chocolate. Thick palate. A good porter.

DiarmaidBHK (3730) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Draft at az wine company. Pours black with an inch of khaki foams that beautifully laces the glass. Big chocolate notes on the nose. Lots of malt and roasted notes on the tongue with some hops on the finish to dry things out. Solid!
