COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“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.

Leighton (13942) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle shared at CBC - Clerkenwell, London during the 1st Birthday Celebration. Thanks to Ken for this beer. I believe this was a handbottle or growler. Pours rich brown with a foamy, tan head. Some tandy dark malts on the nose. Medium sweet flavor, lightly roasty, with some honey and plenty of tang. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Light to medium sweet finish with tangy, lightly roasted malts and a mead-like honey note. If the tang here is intentional, it isn’t great; however, I’m guessing it’s not on purpose - a pity, as this is my first beer from Funky Buddha.

jackl (5804) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle @ CBC’s 1st Birthday Party. Thanks to Ken (I think!) for bringing this along. The pour’s deep brown with no head. The nose is lactose and banana bread, chocolate with hints of vomit. The taste is very tangy lactose funk and cranberry covered chocolates. Some moldy brown dessert cake. The body is medium, the beer soft. This tastes like a somewhat malevolent infection to me. A bit of a fiasco, really.

Bottle shared at the Craft. Opaque black - brown beer, little pale bubbly tan head. Light crispy palate. Sweet and sour beer! Sweet lacto contrasts nicely with the tang - which is bordering on sour. These two aspects in a mellow dark malt backdrop that has a trace of roast. Smooth semi dry finish. Nice easy going and interesting porter.

Scopey (8999) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2012
Tap at Funky Buddha. It pours very dark brown, with a tan head. The nose is dark chocolate, roasted malt, rye bread and spice. The taste is roasted malt, charcoal, rye bread, bitter chocolate, spice, touch of lactose (but not as much as anticipated) and metal, with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. An ok porter, but below average in comparison to their other beers.

Oakes (13536) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2012
Medium-dark brown. The aroma is mostly diacetyl with nuttiness. Harshly astringent, toasty, nutty and full of butter. Gotta take it off tap when it turns.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Dark brown-black. Thin beige cap. Aroma is oily coconut and Diacetyl, sadly. Beneath that is a nice coffee roast but the oily palate and Diacetyl gets in the way completely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
