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.

spikester (604) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2009
Very dark brown with some ruby highlights. Nice one finger tan head. Modest amount of lacings. Mild roast malt aroma. Taste is dark chocolate malt with a touch of espresso. Just enough earthy hop bitterness to balance the flavors. Finish is moderately bitter. Tasty porter but a bit subdued overall. Very easy drinker.

Bottle... Poured deep brown with a beige head. Smoked malts and light chocolate or mocha notes on the nose. Light palate with a nice carbonation. Lots of malts and strong roasted and earthy flavors too with a tiny bit o hops. Chocolaty finish.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2009
Bomber. Pours a quite dark purplish brown with large sticky beige head. The aroma is pipe tobacco, caramel, molasses, marshmellows, and just a touch of ash. The flavor is sweet with caramel, prune, and milk chocolate. There are some notes of char and wood in there, but they are behind the sweeter tones. A bit of a spicy and earthy hop tinge comes out toward the finish, just enough to keep the sweetness at bay. The aftertaste is ash and chocolate, and fades slowly. The mouthfeel is slick and goes down the throat very, very smoothly. Very good beer. I could down a few of these.

Bomber. Pours black with a dense one-finger latte-colored head. Holding the beer to a strong light reveals a ruby red interior. Enticing aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark roasted malt and light smoke. The taste is even better - lots of semi-sweet chocolate, dark roasted coffee and a hint of oak. A pleasant bitterness from the generous quantity of hops lingers on the tongue and balances the beer nicely. The body is moderately thick and smooth, with no detectable carbonation. This is a terrific porter - I enjoyed it from start to finish.

SHIG (3565) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Bottle: Poured a deep black color with jello tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, smoke, and alcohol. Taste is gentle roasted malt with a smooth chocolate, some wood undertone.

LinusStick (2842) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2009
A decent sessionable porter that I would never have know about without my Portland trading partner, Chewy. Thanks man! Aroma was so so. A slight alcoholic mix of roasted chocolate malt and cereal. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a light tan ring around the top for a head. Taste was a little thin and light but good. A little oily, with chocolate malt and coffee in the front and a wet watery aftertaste. All in all an OK beer.

Nebulor (109) - , California, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Roasted malt aroma with maybe some molasses and florals. Pours a pitch black color, minimal tan head, evident sediment in bottle, and can’t see the action. Roasted malt taste, with coffee, some chocolate, butter background, and mild hop florals. Full bodied, resinous, bready, buttery, with soft carbonation. Session Porter that is well balanced.

22oz pours to a medium head with dark brown color. Fantastic aroma of chocolate malt and roasted notes. Flavor is fantastic. Lots of roast, chocolate, coffee. Smooth, drinkable, and delicious. Best porter I’ve had in a long time.

22 ounce bottle thanks Kegbear poured into a pint glass. A nice dark pour that is reddish dark. Good aroma. kind of malty with a bit of chocolate in the aftertaste. A bit thin for a porter in my opinion but damn good nonetheless
