This is yet another original flagship brew and of the English persuasion. Our brewer does love his dark beers and decided to brew this slightly unheralded style. Porters, related to stouts, come in two basic styles: Brown and Robust. Robust styles tend to be heavier, stronger and even slightly darker. Brown Porters tend to be more drinkable as a session brew. Our Puget Sound Porter is a lovely dark Brown with strong hints of ruby. A wonderful coffee roasted and chocolate nose makes this Porter unique and enhances the medium bodied brew. The flavors of coffee and chocolate follow through each sip of this porter. 8 different malted barley’s, including Pale Chocolate and dark German barley make up the grist. Two hop additions balance the beer’s flavor. Our brewers 2nd favorite child! GABF Gold in 1999 5.4% ABV and 40 IBUs.

Sample at Pop Kitchen at the EMP. Dark brown with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Light-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of biscuit malt, chocolate and coffee. The finish is sweet with a mocha aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, Seattle - 08/11/12. Mid black with a thin tan head that clears to the edge and forms a pond. Nose is big on roast malts, milk chocolate, liqourice, molasses. Tastes of milk choclate, molasses, touch of wood, roast malts, a little smoke. Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a slightly bitter roasty finish. A good porter!

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2012
Deep brown-black pour with a tight tan head. Roasty dry cocoa aroma with a lot of soft chocolate and some herbal hoppiness. Pretty straightforward, although that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Easy drinking. Dry finish.

A good Porter, not the best, but definitely one of the top contenders as seen by its many awards.

Dark pour with some ruby highlights. Fairly thin body with light chocolate notes, some cocoa, lightly roasted coffee and grass. A layup of a porter.

650ml bottle pours a dark brown color with 2 fingers of head leaving a thin lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is roasted malts with some chocolate. Taste is roasted malt bitterness with some chocolately sweetness to balance things out. Medium body and soft carbonation. A pretty decent porter with nicely balanced flavors and recommended to try.
