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.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Toasted malty flavor with a quick finish.

ben4321 (4066) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 12/23/11

Aroma: The nose is mostly roasted malts, with hints of chocolate, caramel, toast, and dark fruit
Appearance: It pours a dark brown-black color with a foamy beige head that dissipates quickly
Flavor: Heavily malty taste, with roasted and chocolate flavors, light coffee and toast, light bitterness
Palate: Medium body, decent mouthfeel, medium-heavy carbonation, with a slightly dry and slightly metallic finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a fairly decent porter, but it wasn’t a standout. The flavors progress a bit as it warms, and some more character seems to rise. This is a solid Porter, but again, it is still nothing particularly great or memorable.

Thanks to my friend Caryn for hooking me up with the bottle. Dark brown with garnet tints and a medium sized light brown head. Moderately roasty aroma with definite chocolate milk and iced coffee highlights. Iced coffee/cappuccino flavor follows - lightly roasted malts with earthy hops, light molasses and mild vanilla. Lightly carbonated, and the palate is a little weak, but that’s really the only ding against it. Solid, tasty porter overall.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - NOV 30, 2011
Dark with a large tan head. Aroma is coffee, roasted coffee, cocoa, and a bit of sweet malt. Full body. Flavor has a decent helping of roast malt, but not quite stout like, dry-roast coffee, cocoa, light sweet brown sugar. Finish is a bit on the dry side. The fairly big body on this porter makes up a bit for its lack of, for lack of a better word, creativity. Still, it’s a good beer and easily something I would drink again.

Newer availability at Chuck’s: pours cloudy dark mahogany. biscuit, brown sugar, roasted malts, hint of coffee on the nose. subtle burnt toast, more sweet malts with a drying bitterness that lingers through the finish. nice carbonation, rather smooth and drinkable. nice sessionable beer.

bottle to glass. Aroma of sweet roasty malts. black color with light tan head. slight bitterness. An easy drinking porter. Great for a rainy day.

cheap (4173) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Big tuff beer. Pour is nice and dark, almost brown near black. Taste is roasty dark beer enjoyment. could have a few more manners but comes across rather nicely. Yes, seems like a higher alky stout. Not bad overall, a medium fine beer drinken experience. Ceramy at times. Some roasted bitterness on the finish.

IrishBoy (3872) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Bomber From Utah State Liquor Store #18 Cedar City. Nose is caramel with a hint of coffee and roastiness. Clear rusty brown with a huge beige head that laces heavily. Flavor is caramel and hints of nuts and coffee. Good light porter; I could drink lots of this one if it was local.

Nuffield (3713) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Roasted and chocolate, with a rounded and full flavor profile that ends in an oddly bitter and somewhat disappointing finish. Moderate porter palate, in part to be expected. Bottle.

dmac (4173) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2011
22oz bomber from EZ. poured a thinner black body under a large bubbly super light beige head. Aroma of chocolate milk lite, lactose, chocolate, grains and dust. Body is thinner and the carboantion is on the strong side with a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is the same as the aroma with a touch more roastiness then the aroma. Decent beer but not in love with the palate on this one.
