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 (6078) - 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.

glennmastrange (2288) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle. Moderate to heavy malt notes of dark toasted dark bread, dark chocolate and mild coffee, light resin and earth for the hops and yeast. Head is small, frothy/creamy, light brown with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Volor is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly acidicm and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, creamy with a carbonation between lively and fizzy and finishes very dry. A rich and tasty Porter with a dry and bitter finish.

"Starts out with a nice robust aroma of malted chocolate, dark fruit, caramel. Flavor is nice if a little muddled. More sweet, less roast than I’d like. But that said it was still Pretty nice."
