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.

JStax (2980) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2013
22 ounce bottle. Pours a darker brown with a beige ring of foam. Aroma has notes of vanilla, nuts, and dark chocolate. Tastes mildly sweet and a little roast. Not my thing, I guess.

Drinkable but nothing special. Not overly bitter, flavored or sweet just rather plain.

Dogbrick (8133) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Sample at the brewpub (as NighTroll Porter). The beer pours black with a medium thin creamy tan head that diminishes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Medium body with flavors of black coffee, chocolate malt and a touch of hops. The finish is roasty with a short coffee aftertaste. Decent overall.

Had this on Nitro as NighTroll Porter. Black pour with the normal nitro look. Aroma is nice and roasty with some citrus in there as well. Taste of sweet cream and roast malt. Very mild beer, but good.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2012
A good porter, but ultimately a bit one dimensional. Some mocha on the nose and palate, but too thin and fizzy for my taste.

CampesinoTino (761) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Bomber. Black with an inch of thick cappuccino foam head. The aroma is mostly chocolate mocha and roasted malt with a bit of citrusy hops. The taste starts strong on the smoky roasted malt and dark roast coffee flavors followed by some bittersweet chocolate, caramel and herbal hops. The body is adequately carbonated with a dry, roasty finish and mildly bitter aftertaste. All in all, a smooth and balanced Porter with a nice bite to it.
