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 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 (1200) - 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.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2008
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.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Pours a very dark brown, near black in color. About an inch of head forms on the pour. Don’t know what’s going on in the smell, but it seems a bit "minerally". Taste is plenty of roasted malts and coffee. Plenty of carbonation with a full mouthfeel. Another good beer from Firestone. It would be nice to have their stuff distributed here.

dwyerpg (4436) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 4, 2008
A nice woody roasty aroma. A good robust flavor, as the name implies. Rich, chocolaty, but not too much. Good stuff.

travita (3839) - Frisco, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Dark brown to black in color with a good tan head. Smell is roasted malts, caramel, coffee, and chocolate. Taste goes pretty much with the smell as far a flavors go. Smooth going down. Good.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Thanks to Eric for this bottle--Poured a chocolate dark brown with a handsome frothy tan head that dissipated soonafter. Nutty, chocolate, roasted nose. Chew, complex with hints of vanilla, tobacco, almond, and finished with some herbal hoppiness. Well built like the tires. Yum!

I drank this one a few weeks ago, so I don’t remember the specifics, but it was quite tasty and better than I expected.

Praetorian (86) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Pours with a large off-white, lasting head with good lacing. Dark brown in color with an aroma of vanilla, hops, oak and molasses. Starts sweet with a bitter finish and a somewhat chocolatey flavor with a nutty undertone. Full bodied with creamy texture. A decent beer overall, very enjoyable.
