COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If a troll requests a pint of porter, you’d better have a good, big one to offer. Troll Porter fits that bill. Black, round and complex, with mocha and chocolate overtones and a fine hop profile. Very tasty brew. 6.6% ABV 31 IBUs Malts: 2-Row Pale ~ Crystal 75L & 120L ~ Munich ~ Special Roast ~ Chocolate ~ Carafa III ~ Torrefied Wheat Hops: Apollo ~ East Kent Goldings Original Gravity: 16.5° Plato

On nitro tap at Hale’s, pours a dark amber brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is very subtle, with light notes of toasted malt - not much else. Flavour is pleasant, with notes of cocoa and light toasted malt - light-to-medium sweetness. Smooth palate from the nitro, but not terribly refined. Okay.

Ferris (6902) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
Draft - Nitro - Dark roast and some chocolate. Deep brown with a rich creamy beige head. Light roast and chocolate notes. Creamy and nice mouthfeel, but pretty plane.

furthur (332) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Sampler, clear almost opaque reddish black, nice walnut colored head, thick lace. Aroma faintly nutty and roasty. Taste malt and roast barley, nutty coffee, vanilla. Palate is a little light, carbonation subdued. Nice standard Porter.

Wow! On nitro at Bar Gernika. Dark brown with creamy beige head, lacing coats the glass. Dark peat and nuts, burnt toast. Mild but lasting bitterness. Excellent!

fiulijn (16003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Draught at Hales Ales Brewery and Pub
Dark brown color, near black, with compact head. Light aroma of roasted malt. Good body strength; soft mouthfeel; it has a moderate flavor of roasted malt and chocolate. Correct bitterness.
More Brown Ale than Porter, not enough round and chocolatey, but pleasant overall.

Off Draft at Hales brewery. Got 5 oz sample of this brew both nitro and regular. Rating is regular draft. Slight chocolate aroma, brown color. Sips full and mildly carbonated. Middle is slight dry and finishes mild cola sweetness with dark malt. Very easy drinking and enjoyable brew.

harrymel (1542) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2013
On tap at post St ale house. A: dark, dark beer with mocha foam atop which is persistent. Rings of lace. S: nutty with slightly too much toasted character making it a little too dry. T: malts are coffee like with a tad more bitter than I would prefer in this brew. A slightly astringent and almost sour character here. M: full bodied with light carb and a semi slick finish. O:. Not particularly enjoyable. Serving type: on-tap 11-28-2011

tiggmtl (4547) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2013
Fruity and floral notes grace the sweet chocolate aroma along with some light roast malt. Opaque brown body is topped by a decent, fine-bubbled, brown head that lasts well and leaves some lace. Rast and cholate play well with moderate bitterness. Medium body with pleasant strong effervescance. Shaker glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle.
