COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our award winning dark ale which is an original London style, lighter in body than a stout but with the same alcohol content. Brewed with pale, crystal, chocolate and black malts to create a creamy, smooth, roasted, slightly chocolate tasting ale with a bit of hoppiness in the finish. The name comes from the fact that after brewing, the mash is given to a local farmer and there can't be anything better than spent grain from brewing for fattening up a pig.

Dark body with a thick beige head. Smoke and roasted aromatics. Thin and a bit watery while also smoky therefore not offering much pleasure. Just ok.

Had on draft, came muddy dark brown, aroma a little sweet and malty. Flavor is mild for a porter, chocolate, slighty malty. Nothing stands out with this one.

Pours a very dark blackish mahogany with a fair sized light brown head. Nose of chocolate, molasses and malt. Creamy on the palate but with a little thinner viscosity than most premium porters. Taste is malt, chocolate, coffee, molasses with a little hoppy bitterness on the finish. A good porter but not quite top tier. Pairs well with dark meats such as goose or duck.

A nice, tame, interesting take on the London Porter from a Montana Brewery. It’s not my favorite, but I am very happy to be enjoying it.

It poured a deep brown color with a beige head. The aroma was a blend of roast and some chocolate. The flavor was roasty and had a strong hoppy taste. Not bad.

Bottled. Poured clear, medium garnety-brown with a tall, fluffy khaki head. The aroma picked up sweet, burnt black malts first and foremost.. hard to place.. some molasses, chocolate, and vanilla present.. brown sugar and ash too.. charred roast accents.. I didn’t like it at first, but it grew on me. The flavor found burnt, lightly smoked black malts at the core, with ashy roast rolling outward.. some sourness on the back-end, giving the expected London porter feel.. the malts never really popped, though. Light-medium bodied and very roasty/burnt on the palate.. the transition to sourness across the middle was well done.. still not greatly enjoyable or interesting.

12oz bottle. Murky brown-black with a big beige head that laces the glass. Chocolate, cocoa in the aroma. A really well done, medium bodied Porter. Enough rich chocolate tones that you could call it a Chocolate Porter and no one would blink an eye. Very easy on the palate. Well done.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark black with a slight red hue and a thin tan head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, chocolate, smoke, vanilla, coffee and some hops. Similar aroma that is rather strong. Has a nice body that is slick and creamy. Very drinkable and quite satisfying. Well worth having again.
