A stout-ish porter with a touch of porter-ish stout. Accepting the fact that we live in confusing times, Greenbush offers up it’s own "ball of confusion," with Distorter - a robust porter blurring the lines between a porter and a stout. Have a bottle or get therapy.

This is good. It’s sweet but has a hoppy bitterness that lingers a bit too long for my taste. It’s very smooth bodied and goes great with scotch!

DuffMan (9593) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
On tap @ Quality Bar, Champaign. Dense dark brown with a lasting tan head that leaves messy lace. Deep roast aroma. Very roasty palate, slightly burnt/acrid, with fruity acidity. Moderately bitter finish. Solid.

Bottle pour. Aromas and appearance of a stout. Tastes of caramel chocolate coffee and roasted malt. Label makes sense with the stout-ish porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz into a snifter,pours black ,average creamy medium brown lasting head, with good lacing.Heavy roasted /burnt malt nose with average hop. Medium body, thin creamy texture, average carbonation, with a lasting bitter finish.A good brew but the over the top burnt detracts from the over all beer.

markducommun (926) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
Deep brown color, mild tan head. Nutty, savory, touch of vanilla sweetness. Quite bitter upfront, some sweetness sneaking in later. Heavier body, alcohol is present but disguised by some of the bitterness. Incredibly long and lingering aftertaste. Quite interesting, very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is earthy/dark malts and light coffee. The flavor is dark malts, Heinz steak sauce, light fruit, light roasted notes and a slightly tart/acidic finish.

12oz bottle 4/6/14 (Binny’s Downers Grove Mix A Six)-40° in Shaker-Pours black with a big brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, and malt. Taste of the same with more chocolate and slight bitterness. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and goes down smooth. Great brew.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on the first night of April after a long winter. Appearance is a creamy pitch black with a rich off white head that laces to the glass. Aroma of chocolate malt, biscuit, light coffee, not too potent. Taste is very nice, lightly bitter, dark chocolate notes, definitely a middle ground between stout and porter.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 medium sweetness, lightly bitter, soft carbonation, silly, this review is silliness, its a good beer I would happily drink any day. Just bought another six pack already had two and Im not sure if its the alcohol talking but this is my new best friend. I love this beer, my mouth wants more.
