COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gulf Porter is the first beer of the year in our Brewer\’s Choice Series. Carefully brewed with select malts, oats, and hops. We rely on the yeast to provide the spicy note and the rich character of the beer. With warm notes of toffee, coffee, and a little chocolate this porter is a beautiful beer. Sure to spark a lively discussion on the finer points of Southern living.

Nice balanced malty yet bittered well, drinkable, and goes great with southern food and weather. Roast and chocolate notes throughout with a clean yeast profile. Just a hair of fruitiness. One of my fav. porters and it’s perhaps my favorite style, good stuff!

Light brown. Looks like the gulf after a hurricane. Aroma of toast, chocolate, chocolate malt, cocoa. Thin watery texture. Very flavorful.

kramer (5108) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Growler. Pours a clear brown body with a nice tight bubbled light brown head that slowly receded to a thin covering. The nose is nicely chocolaty with minimal roastiness, slightly sweet, just a touch of hops, and a little nuttiness. The flavor is just slightly sweet with nice chocolate malt and some lighter toffee notes up front. Fades to a lightly hoppy and coffee laced finish. Light to medium bodied with moderate soft carbonation and some lingering coffee and caramel notes. Pretty nice sessionable Porter. It was not a chore to drink a whole growler of this in an evening.

growler from cbk on 3/21/2010. crystal clear mahogany brown colored pour with a small off white head and some spotty marks of foam. it smells of grain, ash, faint chocolate, coffee-like nuttiness, caramel, soured milk, herbaceous and spicy dry hops. it smells and tastes ’green’. it lacks depth and dimension. light bodied with a sharp mouth feel. 6/3/6/3/12/3.0

growler, courtesy of cheeseman. pours light brown, thin off-white head. Aroma, toffee, light smoke and caramel. Flavors, body was rather thin for a porter, resembled more a brown. Touch of caramel malts, roasted, hints of coffee and butterscotch with a touch of bitter hops mixed with caramel in the finish.
