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.

Tap at Saffron Grill.

Deep pour, nice roasty flavor with coffee and an enjoyable but not overbearing sweetness. Slightly nutty, well balanced, and quite a bit better than I would have expected.

Dark opaque brown color, small steady beige head. Aroma of coffee and some sweetish licorice. Medium-bodied. Smooth palate. Sweetish toasted malty, a bit milky, coffee and dark malts. Chocolate too. Really tasty and balanced porter!

Bottle thanks to Ben! Pours a clear dark brown with a dark gray head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light roasted note with some creamy chocolate and backing dark grains and bread. Flavor starts with some roasted malts that last throughout with a bit of creamy chocolate lying underneath as well as some light dark bread. Nice and smooth.

22 oz. from Chuck’s. Tastes like the black half of the Tarton. Pretty tasty on its own. I can imagine this taking over for the Black Butte as the common bar porter of choice.

Dark black, light head. Coffee roast nose, some licorice. Licorice roast coffee body with some soot, charcoal, and molasses. Black patent malt seems apparent. Like the porter a coal miner may drink. Solid.

bomber - clear, cola brown with thin, off-white head; fresh nutty aromas with bitter coffee and mild roast; full bodied and almost creamy; lovely texture and mouthfeel; not the most flavorful porter by any means, but very solid with that nice fresh roast and nutty flavors; touch of sweetness in the end
