Tap, black body, skiff of tan foam, good lacing. Aroma is roasty black malt and faint metal. Taste is malt and caramel, cherries. Finish is very clean, slightly dry. Palate is smooth, not thick, carbonation very understated. A clean, dry, session porter. Classic.

On tap, brownish black pour. Roasted coffee with some chocolate. A weird bitterness at the end tastes acrid. Thin mouthfeel for a Porter.

Growler filled from the Brewery. Dark brown with a light brown head. Roasted malt aroma with chocolate and caramel. Mostly sweet taste with just a bit of bitterness. Medium body, with mild carbonation and a smooth mouth feel. One of my favorite Homer brews.

Smoky, mocha flavor with a good hops bite in the end. Rich body. Bonus point for the reused Sobe bottle.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 6, 2008
22-Jan-08 (Draft: Duggan’s Waterfront Pub in Homer, AK) A dry, moderately roasty porter with minimal sweetness and a light hop presence. Mild, dark chocolate comes out more in the finish. The nose is only mildly aromatic and offers notes of chocolate and dark roast. Medium in body and carbonation level. Dark-brown body is opaque through the center. Small, tan head settles to a sprinkling of powder and thin ring. This is another relatively standard offering from Homer Brewing, a beer that seems about average for the style. Very drinkable and enjoyable, with no noticeable flaws, though more pronounced aromatics would help.

The Homer Brewing company is one of my favorite local breweries. Almost every single beer it produces is excellent. China Poot Porter is one of the best Porterís available in the state.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Strong coffee/mocha in the aroma. Hell, even my sister noticed it. A nice dark brown color though needs some work on the head (like all the beers from this brewery). Warm, well-balanced mocha taste, with some nice floral hops in the finish. The best of the 5 beers available in olí Homer AK.
