COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Grain: Maris Otter, Crystal 60L, British Chocolate, Black Malt, Roasted Barley Hops: East Kent Goldings, Willamette, Cascade Yeast: British-style Ale yeast

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Inky black with a tan head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee. Taste is rich with burnt grain, dark roasted coffee, a little earch. Dry finish. Excellent.

burg326 (3667) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2013
12 ounce bottle poured a black color with aromas of chocolate, coffee, earth, and some light ash. Flavors were a mix of chocolate espresso with some earth. A nice porter overall, could easily drink this everyday.

wmubronco1992 (614) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours black. Huge tan head. Took a couple minutes to get a complete pour. Chocolate aroma. Flavor of bitter roast, coffee, and chocolate. Heavier palate. Very nice lacing. Still 1/3 inch head 30 minutes after pouring. Solid mouth feel. Overall a very solid beer. I purchased as a single. But its definitely worth picking up a 6 pack.

HighWine (952) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle to rocks glass. Reminds me of North Coast Old No 38 Stout but I like this better. Roasty and ashy, very drinkable but extremely full flavored. Delicious.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle:   Nearly black, moderate foamy light beige head, nice lacing.   Sweet roasty nose, slight lactose.   Sweet start, roasted malts, lactose sweetness.   This is pretty tasty.   Not a lot of bitterness.   What is there seems to come from the roastiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Slight chocolate on the exit, otherwise sweet roasted malts, lactose sugar, and light nuttiness.   Like a soft Porter crossed with a Milk Stout.   Pretty tasty!   Thanks Kevin!

Huhzubendah (2522) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 27, 2013
The beer is near black and opaque with a soapy beige head that displays excellent retention. The aroma offers bitter chocolates, roast, bread, alcohol. Decent flavor. A bit too bitter and ashy for me. Chocolaty throughout. Rally dry finish with some buttering hops. This was ok.

brokephibroke (291) - Mead, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2013
Trade via Siphium. Dark opaque pour with a large dark tan fluffy head. Coffee dominates the nose with a little spruce hiding in the back. Roasty with hoppy bitterness and metal. I think the metal hides some of the potential subtleness here, but the hop linger is very nice!

Minderbinder (1795) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle 12oz. Pours black with low beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of vegetal stuff (resin), roasted malt, coffee, chocolate. Taste is of chocolate, coffee, sugar. Palate: Medium-full bodied. Overall: "Ok" stoutish beer. A tad heavy on sugar. Not bad.
