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.

Pours a one finger light tan head that fades slowly to a ring leaving a good lace. Deep mahogany color. Light carbonation and heavy bodied. Roasted/burnt coffee nose. Flavor is roasted/burnt coffee, a little sweetness, smooth. Bakers chocolate aftertaste. $3.99 for a 22oz bottle from John’s Marketplace Portland, OR.

Bottle poured black with a nice thick brown head with a nice sheet of lacing that coats the inside of my favorite glass. Aroma and flavor of bitter, roasty malts, chocolate, coffee. moderately sweet with a thin/ medium body. not bad at all with a lightly bitter finish and a good mouthfeel.

Very dark with very little head....reminds me of espresso. Hints of chocolate, coffee, and something else "I can’t quite put my finger on."

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 17, 2007
pours very dark brown with orange highlights. it’s topped with a thin cocoa head that quickly disappears to nothing. aromas of bittersweet chocolate, roasty malts, dark dried fruits and a lacto character. flavor is a bit of...caramel, grassy hops, wood, ashy roasted malts, smoky acidity and chocolate. i say a bit because it doesn’t really have much in the flavor department and nothing really stands out. coffee is present in the aftertaste with some chocolate. thin bodied with low carbonation. i thought it would develop as it warmed but just disappointed. cold or warm this beer is meh.

Dark brown body with a tiny beige head-fading. The nose is sweet with licorice, grapefruit, molasses and chocolate. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter with chocolate, roast and licorice. Medium body is very soft with moderate carbonation.

purchased at world market in silverdale, washington. pour is jet black, all most no head whatsoever, but it does have a bit of tan lacing. smell is faint, sweet, cocoa, brown sugar, touch of caramel, rustiness. taste is on the watery side, milk chocolate, roasted almonds, not as bitter as i like, a little oily on the back-end, sweetness.

Courtesy of Degarth. Pours deep and dark with thin mocha head. The aroma is sweet and sugary, molasses, sugared prunes, some mild cleaning chemicals and more prunes. No hint of burnt malts in the nose that most porters seem to have. The flavor does have a nice burnt malt note right from the start. Then the taste moves more sweet with molasses, prunes, brown sugar and mild chocolate.

22oz bottle, courtesy of argo0. Thanks, Aaron! Pours a clear, medium cola color; thin, light tan head. Lots of chocolate and caramel in the aroma; roasted and watery. Watery, face-puckering mouthfeel: some chocolate and caramel, but very bitter, watery, and off; just kind of gross and dusty; maybe not infected, but not good. Medium, dry cocoa and dusty finish. Basically made me flinch at each sip.

Stine (1714) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Poured from a 22 oz. Fairly thin sienna brown shade. Aroma of caramelized brown and white sugars, with hazelnut latte and other sweet nuts. Bland and average flavor is very minimal, though balanced with notes of lactose, dry walnut, diet cola acridity, and bitter chocolate. Thin in the mouth, distantly tangy with a strange bite. Light and underdone, though not outrightly offensive, it leaves almost everything to be desired. Thanks for sharing, Aaron!
