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

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.

It is black, no transparency at all (it’s beautiful). Pours a small, creamy, dark brown head. Doesn’t hold long but leaves very nice heavy lacing. on the nose you get black coffee, bitter, smoked wood, and a hint of soy. on the tongue you get cereal, coffee, roasted nuts and a pretty strong bitterness (which I like). More like a stout than a porter to me. any way AWSOME beer, this is what beer should taste like. GET ONE, NO GET 6 AND DRINK’EM. A gift at $8-$10 a six pack.

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

Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a thin tan head and aromas of heavily roasted malt (coffee and dark chocolate and peat and the whole bag) with a little vanilla and cream. Flavor is VERY nicely done. A nice and creamy mouthfeel with a jagged peat and burnt malt highlight. Interesting and nicely executed.

jgb9348 (4713) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Deep dark brown coloured body with a ridiculously rich three centimetre brown head. Aroma of alcohol, pit fruits, coffee, prunes, oatmeal and a bunch of nuts - nice and strong. Medium to Full-bodied; Very rich roasted malt flavour with a lot of coffee and nuts noticeable, some anise and licorice tastes and a good nutty sweetness on the end. Aftertaste shows hints of vanilla, oak, oatmeal, prunes, caramel and even a bit of fennel seed. Overall, a very nice pungent stout (this doesn’t seem much of a porter to me, unless it’s a Baltic, but even then) with a large profile and even nicer palate. Great to sample and well worth finding if possible! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 28-February-2014.

12oz bottle, pours a solid black with a two-finger tall dense tan head. Scent is somewhat smokey. Taste is sweet chocolate, roasted coffee, mild bitterness. Good stuff.
