BJCP 2015 Category 20A: American Porter

AROMA: Milk chocolate and roasted malt. Very sweet with some piney hops in the background. Lovely! 11/12

APPEARANCE: Deep dark brown to black proper. Large, dark tan, frothy head. Excellent lacing and retention. 3/3

FLAVOR: Intense roasted malt up front with resiny/piney hops in the middle. Finishes with milk chocolate candy sweetness. Very delectable for a non-imperial stout. 18/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium/full body, though not viscous or sticky. Well carbonated and smooth throughout. No alcohol presence. Nice aftertaste of resin and chocolate. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: This epitomizes the old "Robust Porter" style which was discontinued with 2015 regs. Can definitely hang with the big boys when fresh. 9/10

TOTAL SCORE: 46/50

Bottle… Pours black with a quickly dissipating head. The aroma is toasty and chocolaty. Medium-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is lightly roasty and nearly perfectly balanced. Lingering, comfortable, roasty aftertaste.

kramer (5689) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Pours a clear dark brown, almost black, body with a frothy brown head. The nose is chocolaty and sweet with cocoa and sugar. A light roasty note. The flavor is fairly solid, sweet chocolate and coffee with a little burnt roastiness. Minimal to no alcohol notes. Light to medium body with fizzy carbonation. Decent Porter, but not a standout.

Appearance: silky near-black pour, with a couple of millimeters of fizzy dark tan, almost purplish head; lacing is minimal to nonexistent. Aroma: sweet milk chocolate up front, with dark chocolate pudding coming out as it warms, with a tiny hint of coffee and general roast. Taste: VERY chocolatey and sweet, with subdued roast coffee, light vanilla, and a little tiny whisper of soy sauce. Finish: lingering chocolate sweetness, but a light roasty dryness smooths everything out. Notes: Wow, I was really pleasantly surprised by this. Palate was full and silky, but not encroaching into stout territory. Flavors were dominated by the sweet dark chocolate, which was a-ok with me. Nice porter! Bottle at House of Blues in Orlando, Florida.

good beer. licorice and roasty with chocolate and a nice soul to it like a muscatel. a seemingly vanilla mid palate that only those who are good, or lucky can accomplish. pleasant surprise.

9/28/2014: Florida Beer Gaspar’s Porter... This is a delicious, classic robust porter. It’s quite delicious! Well, since I already gave away my conclusion, here’s the details... Opaque, VERY dark brown color with a large, lasting, rocky brown-colored head. The aroma is chocolate malt, which also dominates the flavor. That’s not to say that the beer is sweet because it’s not. It has a really great amount of chocolate malt flavor. I’d say it’s semi-sweet with a touch of nice mineral characteristic in the finish. The body is medium to medium-full and is smooth, silky, and just right. Like I said in the beginning, this is a delicious porter! 12 fl. oz bottle from bnokk. Thank you!
