COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A singularly distinctive beer that represents our finest brewing efforts, Walker’s Reserve is a elegant dark ale featuring robust flavors of toffee, caramel and bittersweet chocolate. This brew employs five specialty malts, as well as oat and barley flakes, for added complexity and flavor.

Bottle courtesy of Justin. Pours a deep brown with amber highlights and a small light tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, a touch of caramel, and a hint of dark fruit. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild to moderate amount of bitterness. Very good.

Courtesy of Justin. Thanks a lot for this amazing brew. Pours black, with brownish head. Aroma is lightly roasted. Taste is very sweet, plenty of nice coffee and roasted malts. Mouthfeel and aftertaste are dominated by the nice velvety roastiness and nice chocolate malts. This is definitely one of the best porters out there.

This one surprised the heck out of me. It poured a dark black with a tiny light brown head. Aroma is very complex: vanilla, milk chocolate, chocolate malt, whiskey, vanilla, and maple with sweet wood. Flavor is all that and more. Finish is smooth with maple, vanilla, and chocolate malt- the gift that keeps on giving. I don’t like porters, but this one opened my mind.

alexanderj (3317) - Branson, Missouri, USA - OCT 29, 2008
Bottle. Poured a dark brown/black with a very small light brown head. Not eeven enough to cover the whole top. Aroma was very good; caramel, cocoa, wood, oats and vanilla. Flavor was very soothing; not mind blowing flavor, but just really damn solid. Very sessionable. Some good cocoa and oat flavor with hints of wood, vanilla and caramel. Blends very nicely. Palate was hit and miss. Very good for the style.

Mcbackus provided this at his tasting...and I have to offer a huge thanks. He is a generous guy and this is a great beer. Dark brown, coffee and chocolate on the nose. Flavor is chocolate and smooth as hell. Cheers Matt.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2011 Bottle shared at stateline by wolf, cheers! Dark brown in color, decent head. I thought the aroma was kind of weak but picked up on a little coffee. Good amount of chocolate, roasted malts and smokiness. Smooth, creamy texture but thin. Overall a really good porter, thanks wolf!

Bottle thanks to Hophead22, thanks for this one. Poured dark black with nice vream head. Aroma was chocolate coffee and a bit of sweetness. Taste is similar with some caramel and a bit of hops. Finish is very nice and smooth. A nice porter but Firestone.

Now this is what a beer should look like. Dark velvety color with aroma of oak barrels. Thick and creamy white head. Spicy flavor with strong espresso notes

RedSox2004 (1252) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Poured deep deep brown with a two-finger head with decent lacing. Aromas of coffee and a little bit of chocolate and dark fruit. Roasted coffee is the dominant flavor, with some caramel and chocolate in the background. Very little offset from the hops. Lighlty carbonated, slightly watery mouthfeel, and a pleasant roasted malt aftertaste. Just doesn’t hold up to other premium porters.

Bottle. Pours a dark black color, big creamy white head, very creamy lacing. Big roasted malts in the nose, hoppy floral notes, some chocolate. Nice roasted qualities, coffee grounds, chocolate notes. Tasty, smooth and very drinkable.
