COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bid farewell to winterís cruel tyranny with the creamy, bittersweet dark chocolate flavors and fresh raspberry tartness of Alberta Clipper Porter. Named for the intense winter storms that sweep the Midwest and Great Lakes Regions, making us all a little tougher (and a lot colder), Alberta Clipper is the perfect treat to celebrate the return of milder weather and kiss those wintry winds goodbyeÖ at least for a little while.

Nate (3994) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2016
On tap at Brunzies (5/13/15). Nice chocolatey cafe au lait aroma with molasses and a bit of smoke. Very sweet and aromatic. Dark black-brown clear with thin tan head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts sweet and roasty, lots of chocolate and molasses. Coffee, vanilla, lactose, and light carbonic tang. Finish is mildly bitter with lots of chocolate and coffee. Very tasty with pleasing after.

cheap (5085) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2016
Bocktown tap. From the smell, I couldnít wait to taste. Has a nice dark beer aroma with perhaps a touch of clove on the nose. At first the taste is fairly mild with perhaps some clove in there. Then it gets a little more bold, with its dark beer attitude it leaves a slightly cloying roasty burnt wood finish.

Scipio (806) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2016
Pours black with a thin, dark tan head. The aroma contains chocolate, coffee, cherry, and roasted malts. I find some sweetness in the taste. The main impressions are cherry and raspberry, with compliments of chocolate and coffee. Long and subtle aftertaste of cherry. Medium in body, a syrupy texture, and more than an average amount of carbonation. This is a little different in style and its pretty good. I think some people will enjoy this a lot more than I do.

Itís good. Itís very malty and very up front with the chocolate. But I dunno if Iíve just ended up with a lame batch or what but Iím not getting any raspberries. Its still totally solid though.

BillWyce (935) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Pours opaque nut-brown with some red to it. Two-finger tan head. Aroma of tart raspberry with bittersweet chocolate underneath. Full body, lightly syrupy with a brief finish. Flavor of tart raspberry mixed with chocolate. A touch of char at the back.

Darwenus (777) - Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2016
This isnít as good as Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald porter, but it isnít bad. It pours the same dark brown as that other porter, but there isnít much head. The aroma is slight, I donít smell much. Just a little coffee and mild citrus. The flavor lacks the slightly smokey malt quality I associate with my favorite malts. Thereís some hoppy kick, but a watery finish.

Lowe1983 (1460) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, and molasses. Flavor is similar. Not too thick like a stout, but also not to thin like some porters tend to be.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours black with a tan head. Taste fruity/raspberry upfront, dark chocolate, malt finish. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
