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.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2009
Bottle. Poured a deep brown/black color with a moderate off-white head that faded to a ring. Aroma of light chocolate, moderate roast, some light coffee, and a bit of chalk. Smooth, lightly sweet entry with some hints of chocolate leading into a smooth, faint hop bitterness with some light undertones of chalkiness and roasted coffee. Moderate carbonation, but a bit thin on the palate. It tasted decent and was easy to drink, but it did not possess and characteristics to set it apart from other porters.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - JAN 28, 2009
Dayum - this is good! Sweet and chocolatey. Rich and foamy. Pours black with a nice lace of tan head. Flavor is liquid chocolate, with a touch of smoke. Some notes of vanilla in there as well.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Dark brown color, bordering on black. Stale dark malt aroma, with notes of mild coffee and chocolate. Flavor is very light and mild, with light notes of cocoa and vanilla. Unfortunately, it tastes and smells dead, in spite of it being unfiltered and bottle conditioned. This thin bodied effort is a major disappointment.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 12, 2009
Bottle from some bottle shop in Carlsbad. Pours a deep brown with a tan head. Aroma is milky with a hint of dark chocolate and coffee. Lighter side of medium bodied with a smooth, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Somewhat British like in character, with a mixture of caramel, tobacco, chocolate, and nuts. Moderate amount of residual sweetness. Tame amount of bitterness on the finish, along with some wet grains and wood. Not bad at all.

radagast83 (6655) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 7, 2009
22 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate, notes of malt and a touch of coffee. Flavor is incredibly smooth, flavorful with a wash of chocolate, coffee and malts. A beer that greatly complimented the cold weather.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 6, 2009
Reviewed 12/28/2008 (bottle): Pours a very dark red brown color body, with a big foamy craggy tan head. Some alcohol, strong coffee. A little dusty sweet chocolate aroma, not too strong. Watery palate. Weak roasted coffee taste, a little bit of chocolate. Nice sipping beer.

heemer77 (5234) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Bottle from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa. The black body was topped with a large light tan head. The aroma was coffee and strong roast. There was also some soybean and walnuts. The taste was medium coffee roast with some walnuts. A candy caramel finish. A pleasing porter, but not super special.

mpersinger (360) - , California, USA - DEC 26, 2008
22oz bomber pours nearly opaque brown with ruby halo and capped in beige tight head. Aroma is coffee with cream and chocolate with nuttiness. Medium body, or more, with flavor tones of coffee, malt, oak and whiskey. Whiskey in finish. Rewarding.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - DEC 20, 2008
From a 22 oz bottle purchased locally. Aroma is full of roasted coffee and chocolate. Color is a deep ruby brown with a creamy tan head that laces well. Flavor is more roast coffee, with a strong toasty malt backbone. Bitterness is strong but not overpowering. It works well with the malt. Some citrus hop flavor in the finish. Clean, dry and creamy. Overall very complex and well balanced.
