The shift is upon us. Days are shorter, skin is hidden and black beers are here. Our first toss into the winter stew is Chub Step Porter. Like fur between your legs, this roasty, silk charmer is your ticket to seasonal embrace.

Tmoney99 (12408) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Tap sample. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt, spice and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted chocolate sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

Poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and moderate roast. Flavor similar, a bit light, not very robust and a tad on the watery side.

A burnt brown with a 1 finger off white head. Smokey aroma with burnt chocolate. Burnt taste, smoked tobacco and fudge. Thin body. Lots of bitterness at the finish

scarletfire65 (1191) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Tasting at Hackney’s Printers Row. Black pour with a creamy mocha head. The flavor has a strange creamy nutty chemical tinge to it. Almost like a buttery diacetyl thing going on. Weird. I couldn’t get through a 5 oz. Tasting pour.

Definitely one of the best porters out there, this one is tough to beat. Pretty amazing for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the taproom. Really nice..caramel, chocolate, roasty with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Seems like it’d be a bigger beer but nice (moderately) low ABV. Very nice.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Tap @ Half Acre: Black center with deep brown edges; rich beige foam & film up top leaves some nice lacing as it makes its way down. Aroma of silky smooth chocolate notes, light cream, a faint hint of roasted coffee beans, & a touch of some lightly scorched brown sugar in the background. More semisweet cocoa on the palate with that integral hint of milkiness. Slight background of roasted malts with a dash of coffee & some darker hints of woodsy char near the finish, although ultimately it ends on a moderately sweet chocolate malty note. Overall, nice porter from Half Acre.

Pailhead (6017) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 14, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, light roasted nuts, a light coffee. It’s a dark brown with some faint orange highlights and a small beige h ad that fades to a thin minimal film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate and lighter caramel. The finish has moderate roasted nuts, light coffee, and a touch of burnt grains. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle: Brown hue with a fading head and not much lace. Nice roast, bread, walnut, cinnamon, and black tea notes along with a dash of fruit. Different and enjoyable.
