COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When you set out to make a beer that's gonna keep a troll happy, it better have a lot to chew on. This one does. Troll Porter pushes the porter category to a new edge--big, complex, quite black with herbal hop influences--enough to keep that grouchy old troll off your back, at least for a while... Ingredients:Pale malted barley, Carastan, Caramel, Chocolate, Black and Special Roast Malts, Nugget and Mount Hood hops, Hale's special yeast and filtered water.

This porter is particularly vinous with some chewy aspects that seem typical of bigger beers. The flavor is not dominating but is full of roasted chocolate and barley. The malt comes through in the finish and gives the beer a surprising drinkability. Great with seafood.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2005
Some interesting scotch flavors, along with dark roast coffee and some toffee perhaps. Sweet, just a very small touch of maple. Semi-sweet coffee and scotch nose, very robust. Well made with a Shakespeare-like finish.

On Tap at Bittercreek Ale House: Nice bold and flavorful porter, bordering on a stout, though tipping to the malt side of the scale; pretty tastey and well balanced

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Black with lots of lacing & brown head. Strawberry hops & roast malt, some chocolate and high lovibond caramel. The flavor is a bit hoppy with black patent clouding up my style lines but remains tasty. Finishes with lots of sweet & lots of bitter, balances but in a weird way.

Tap@Hales. Pretty smooth porter. Typical US style porter aswell, tasty! Caramel and chocolate, light roast, nothing wrong with this.
