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

The distorter porter pours black with a tan brown head that leaves fair lacing. The aroma is mostly chocolate with some milk. The flavor is also chocolate and milk but the chocolate does not dominate the milk as much. Overall this is a tasty brew. Greenbush is doing good things. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle received via trade with FlandersNed. Pours opaque black with a large, frothy and fizzy light tan head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate and roast malt with dark fruity melanoidins of prune and figs, and earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is dark malt and dark fruits, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Full body and moderate to high carbonation.

RespertFTW (521) - Michigan, USA - APR 25, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown color..medium brown head. Coffee and malt aroma with a little hop too. Taste is unique for porter. Hops are much more prevalent than expected. Still some roasted coffee, malt and chocolate flavor. Certainly an interesting beer.

tmoreau (2571) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2013
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and shaker served with a black/brown hue, a nice layer of lasting, frothy, brownish tan head foam, and clingy spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was roasty, baker’s chocolate, soft malt & graininess, a floral hint?, and light caramel. The flavor presented lingering, medium hop bitterness, earthiness, and some woody/burnt/smokiness that gradually combined on the palate to produce a distracting sharpness and bite. Moderate carbonation, medium+ body, and quite dry on the finish. Took awhile to finish.

Atom (1443) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2013
12oz bottle pours a dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, molasses, slight coffee roast and oats. Hops and barley really stand out above chocolate, molasses, and licorice. Pretty nice!
