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.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, - MAY 24, 2013
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.

Bomber poured in a pint glass. Pours black with a thin mocha brown head and a bit of lacing. Chocolate aroma with burnt caramel, dark fruits, toffee, molasses and finishes with a black licorice note. A very nice porter.

he brew is dark brown but still has great clarity. drapes of lace as the brew drops... Wow.. the nose on this one is fantastic .. it just smells "brown" ... chocolate ... brownie batter ... deep caramel essence ... great malt profile without too much hop presence messing up a good thing. Flavor begins with a nice dark malt bite.. chocolate/carob... lite coffee and roasty malt.. a bit of malt sweetness makes the roast components linger for a bit.. long lasting finish.. almost like a liqueur.. Body is medium and nicely coating.. sorta lighter carbonation lends to a higher drinkability with the overall brew... I dig this one for sure.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle:   Nearly black, deep cola hued edges, frothty beige head, little lacing.   Mild roasted malt nose, a little lactose like sweetness.   Similar on the tongue.   Mild to moderate roastiness.   Very faint sweetness, at least not as much as the nose suggested.   Low hop bitterness, seems to be mostly like this roasted malt bitterness.   Body and mouthfeel are light to moderate.   Wished this one had a bit more body.   Soft roastiness on the finish.   Pretty simple, what I would say a good pedestrian example.

dmac (4965) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Draft at TRT while I sopped. Poured a pitch black body with a small bubbly light beige head. Aroma starts off with burnt toast, dry dark chocolate, earth, newspaper and some nut shells. Medium to fuller body with softer to average carbonation and a lingering earthy aftertaste. Flavor is basically the same as the aroma with a touch of burnt coffee beans and a strong earthy nut shell finish.
