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.

Very nice porter, chocolate, mocha, very nice lingering after taste. This also has a smokey flavor component to it as well.

Dark brown, nice frothy tan head. Aroma is coffee and choclate with grassy hops. Oily on the palate with a nice dark malty flavour. Hops to finish it off.

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Bomber birthday beer 3. Consumed at The Linkery in SD. Pour is uber black with a 1 finger tan head. The aroma is light and malty. Taste is robust and chocolately and quite drinkable. Pretty good brew probbably too heavy to have with dinner like I did but oh well.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Deep reddish brown, plentiful long-lasting light brown head. Aroma is quite unique - dark chocolate, winey, sort of salty, woody in a forest after the rain kind of way. Not overbearing woodiness like many other barrel-aged disasters. Flavor is rich, creamy coffee and chocolate with a bit of a grainy twang at the end. Finish is perhaps a tad thin. Very well crafted, but not extremely exciting.

bhensonb (10978) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Aroma of darkly roasted malt, and some coffee and chocolate. Dark brown/black color with a beige/tan head that laces. Full mouthfeel. Starts with chocolate, followed by coffee, and then some really dark roasted malt. Smooth, but not quite creamy. The finish is dry and there is enough bitter to make it worthwhile.

TheBeerLover (1025) - DC Metro Area, USA - APR 23, 2007
22 oz bottle. Pours to a deep brown, to black color, with a soapy, white head, and a soft to moderate carbonation. The nose is nice, with some aromas of dark chocolate, mild roast, coffee, and light hints of oak. The plate is soft, with good flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, and mild roasty flavors. This beer finishes with more dark chocolate and coffee notes up front, then ends with some mildly roasty, dry, and slightly oaky. Well done example of porter. Very drinkable, enjoyable beer, perfect for a session with some ice cold oysters.

TheBeerGod (5230) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2007
Bottle. Dark, murky brackish brown to near black opaque body with only small spots of tan foam on the surface. Nose is chocolaty, very roasty, dark malts, and coffee. Taste leans more towards sweet than bitter. Dark chocolate, oily dark coffee, roasted malts, and light burnt or charred notes. Body is creamy and smooth. Medium overall feel but the carbonation is a little more than average pushing it towards fizzy in spots. Finishes with a stronger coffee presence, more roasted malts, and a bittersweet dark chocolate splash. Very nice!

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2007
It took me a while to get the hard foil off this bomber! When I finally got it open, it poured a rich dark ruddy brown with a firm head with a marshmellowy consistency. The aroma is dessert-like, sugary and sweet, full and rich. The flavor lives up to the promise; this is a nicely rich beer ... bittersweet chocolate, a hint of java, and maybe just a tease of a hoppy bite. Perfect for this chilly Spring evening after dinner.
