COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shallow Grave Porter is dark as night, perfect for a cool evening out in the woods. This a big, dark ale with a complex and rich chocolate and caramel malt character followed by a touch of warmth and light malt sweetness, leaving you ready for more after each shovelful. You will love this so much you won’t have time to dig a six-footer, so make it a Shallow Grave. We’re sure you’ll dig it.

Aroma of cocoa nibs, charcoal and dark grains. Solid black appearance with no foam. Moderate flavors of charcoal, coffee beans and dark grains. Not much other flavor going on. Overall, pretty decent at best. No complexity or anything that makes it special.

Dark as night, hints of mocha, love it. Shame it’s quite expensive, I’d buy heaps of it

In short: A complex roasted porter with good hopping. Very nice.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed when approximately 4 to 6 months of age. Bottle sent to me by oakbluff, thanks a lot Scott.
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head.
In long: Nose is has a pleasant rich toasted malt character as well has green herbal hops. Taste has succulent cereals, highly roasted and wrapped in luscious caramel, nice mocha, roasted cashews, burnt oats, notes of bakery chocolate. A decent amount of herbal-spicy hops that distracts the taste buds and washes the sweetness away. Lively mouthfeel with a big body and generous but never aggressive carbonation. Nothing original here but the execution is flawless, it is flavorful, a good complexity, a high drinkability factor. A 22oz that went down like a 12oz. Very much above average take on the style. Another nice bottle I got in a trade that was gathering dust in my cellar, I have way too much good beer in my cellar, so if you are reading this I hereby invite any ratebeerian passing through Montreal to drop by house and watch me drink way too much good beer.

DocJitsu (993) - Florida, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours a clear reddish-black with a root beer head. Poor head retention. Dark chocolate and sorghum bouquet. Dry dark chocolate flavor that yields to a bitter coffee finish. It was strongly recommended that I have this beer. He must’ve been drunk. Heretic’s Evil Cousin and Evil Twin are both far more interesting.

Nate (3740) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2013
On tap at Abbot’s Cellar. Roasted toasted coffee, licorice, chocolate, and lactose. Really nice sweet and salty porter aromas. Dark black-brown opaque with lacing tan head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation and some warmness. Starts sweet and rich with chocolate, coffee, lactose, and molasses. Chocolate malted milk, sweet finish with nutty sweet bitter after. Nice porter.

Excellent porter. The only thing wrong with this is that the head did not hold up very well but that may because the glass. I would like to see a competition between this brewer and a trappist ale.

Bottle: Dark brown color with a tan ring with a choco, licorice, date and slight berry aroma. Coffee flavors with a lingering smoky aftertaste. Much thicker than most Porters. Very tasty!
