“Make the long night shorter, Forgetting not, Good stout old English Porter.” — R. H. Messenger

Luscious and silky smooth with a body to match, OP Porter is uncompromisingly rich yet surprisingly drinkable. A complex blend of dark malts and real milk sugar creates the bold flavors of dark roast coffee mingling with farm fresh cream. For the stout and porter lover in each of us, OP is a knockout.

Pairing suggestions: Cave-aged Bleu cheese, arancini with veal ragu, roast pork with gravy, bacon burger with fried egg and cheddar cheese, molten chocolate cake.

Dark brown into black in a snifter. Small head. There is a strange and huge aroma of fruits in this one, blood oranges, dominant melon with a blend of cream and chocolate. Myabe some vanilla and vinegar? There is a distinctive taste of some fruit that is dominant and I cant quite figure out. No doubt this is hugely complex, maybe a bit lacking in body but my god, this is tasty!!

Une des meilleures sweet stout que j’ai bu sans aucun doute, mélasse douce et lait de coco dans un corps velouté, j’ai adoré.

J’adore, c’est un benchmark pour les porter. J’adore, ronde, gouteuse, bien faite. Merci funky, j’adore.

Big espresso, dark chocolate, and alcohol. Medium to full bodied. Tingly like carbonation. Too much alcohol presence while cold and when warmed. But so far my fav. at Funky buddha.

Appearance: The body is opaque black through all but the center, the edges show a clear mahogany to garnet color. The head is tall with good retention, it settles into a coating that coats the entirety of the surface.
Aroma: The aroma is coming off a tad rubbery with hints of lactose, roasted malts and cocoa. Overall the aroma is very restrained though.
Taste: Lots of lactose up front with a very muted malt presence, that hints at roasted malts and semi-dark chocolate with a slightly rubbery finish.
Palate: Soft bodied, like I’m drinking milk, with very light carbonation.
Overall: My first Funky Buddha beer has been a disappointment, this is too heavy on the lactose and I keep picking up rubber hints. Perhaps the growler just didn’t survive the shipping process.

On tap at Funky Buddha Boca. Pours brown with a brown head and aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is toasty, roasted malt and light chocolate with a roasty finish. Seemed a little off however, lacks some flavor for a porter

4 oz sampler draft at the brewpub in Boca Raton, Florida. The pour is black brown, slight haze, and a small light tan head. The aroma is cocoa sweet, light char, and some molasses malt. The taste is a blend of cocoa sweet, molasses, and then finishes with the light roast. Nice balance of flavors. The palate is medium bodied, soft carbonation, and a clean dry mineral finish. Nice Porter.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2013 One of my favs at the Funky Buddha. Tap. Pours a jet black with a decent thin brown head. Aroma is strong with coffee, roasted nuts, and cocoa/chocolates. The taste is very good with huge coffee flavors, thick milky taste, malts, roasted cocoa, chocolate and a light sweetness that makes you want to have more.

Rich in coffee and roasted malts. It's a porter. Good but nothing really new. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
