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.

hopscotch (9553) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Growler… Clear, deep ruby beer with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The nose is mainly of toasted nuts and easygoing milk chocolate. Almonds really stand out. Medium to full-bodied and slick with stinging carbonation. Moderate chocolate and espresso flavors. Hopped up nicely. Lengthy, moderately bitter, coarse/dry finish. Growler courtesy of TheCheeseMan!

j12601 (6863) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2010
Growler courtesy of The Cheeseman in the mystery swap. Pours a clear ruby hued brown with a medium sized tanned beige head. Caramel, a bit of toast. Pretty empty overall, not offensive or anything but just lacking so much that makes a good porter, well…good. Finishes with more watered down roast flavors and caramel. Mediocre. But, my first Mississippi beer.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Growler courtesy of garmonbozia. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells roasty with some burned licorice, smooky hints, velvety chocolate and spicy. Taste is layered with lots of roasty malt up front (chocolate, coffee, smoky, peppery) with a full mouthfeel and a sweet finish. A definite home run from this brewer as the person who sent me this one suggests.
