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.

This brew pours with a black body topped by a medium thick head with some lacing. The aroma is sweet, roasty and malty with a little note of coffee. The flavor is sweet, creamy and malty with a little roasted coffee. Full bodied, smooth and a little dry.

Pours black, with a foamy tan head. Aroma is oak, bourbon, malt, bitter chocolate. Chocolate & malt are the main flavors of the beer. Overall it’s pretty good. The toffee does come out more as the beer warms.

Poured dark, with a tan head. Aroma is of coffee and chocolate. This wasn’t too bad at all, flavor was like a coffee and chocolate/caramel, with a smooth finish. Not bad at all!

Deep brown, light tan head. Strong coffee nose, very robust, sweet coffee and nuts, some vailla and a gritty finish.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 9, 2004
Dark dense pour, thick head formation. Roasted, pastey aroma, sweet frutiiness. Thick ful bodied palate, rich sweet fruity flavor, balances well against the roastiness. Oats smooth things out particularly well. Good complex well built porter.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2004
Dark with a small tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, smoke and coffee. Flavour is bitter chocolate with some anise in the finish. A darn good porter.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2004
Deep, almost black, garnet with a beige head. The aroma was of baker’s chocolate, coffee, and smoke. Full and creamy in the mouth. Flavor was roasted coffee and bitter chocolate with that same hint of smoke.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 2, 2004

SpringsLicker (3251) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 28, 2004
Deep black color that coaxes into a decent head. A little red around the edges. Chocolate aroma is a little timid, improves as it warms, but never really live up to the expectations. Flavor is acceptable, but I was expecting much more from the oak barrel aging. Just another fair Porter.
