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.

Draft at Funky Buddha. Brown-black with a rusty beige head. Rich lactic tones, very much in the Caribbean style of Stout. Sweet and milky, a pretty solid example of the style. Rich, sugary chocolate and some faint sour milk notes. Well done.

(Bottle thanks to jyoungsbcp) clear espresso brown with soapy tan bubbles. Nose of light smoke, chocolate, sweet cream. Taste of light smoke, dry chocolate malt, malt balls, slight spicy linger, nice, dry, and chocolaty.

blomster (258) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle, thanks to darkguardian! Pours dark brown, near black, with a big, creamy tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, a hint of smoke in the background. Sweetish taste, with hops and muscovado sugar up front, then milky chocolate and coffee. Light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Personally, I think this beer would be better with a bit more roasted malt character. That said, it is a really solid porter that I’d gladly drink more of given the chance.

Had yesterday at the brewpub. Review from notes. Received in a pint-like glass. 3.5 A: Black color. Came without a head, so no comment there. 4.0 S: Good balance between roastiness and sweetness. Strong coffee aroma with sweet dark caramel. Perhaps a touch of chocolate. Not too complex, but quite pleasant. 4.5 T: Like the nose - lots of coffee with ample amounts of sweet caramel giving this a velvety richness. Soft chocolate notes with perhaps a hint of smoke. 4.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Wonderfully creamy. Great here. 4.5 D: A well made beer that is all around solid. Definitely the best beer I had out of the five I tried. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 07-06-2011 17:10:51

Draught, black with a lacing and brown head. Nose is dry, bitter roast and some chocolate. Thick and murky taste, strong coffee and roast, heavy chocolate in the style of Upland’s Bad Elmer (as JG astutely remarks). Light hops are actually contributing something! Love this sultry swirl of coffee and chocolate, with only light and lilting sweetness, my favorite of the sampler and easily worth the pint.

Poured from a mini growler. Pours a dark brown with a few bubbles. Has a chocolate and sort of maple syrup smell to it. Taste is similar with some roasted malt tones. Pretty solid.

Poured a dark brown, with roasted malt, choclate, and sweet milk as the aromas. Flavors follow the aroma, with a nice chocolaty milk flavor in the middle, and a light sweetness at the end that made me wanting more.
