COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When the temperature drops, rain beats down and wind swirls around dark alleys, we seek out the comfort of the local tavern. Swathed in warm dim light, your hands wrapped around a rich, chocolaty English Porter, you can let your mind drift and heart beat slow. Mr Obadiah Rye Porter is a respectful nod to aged ales and our brewing forebears who were inspired to put pen (or quill) to paper. Expect spice from the malted rye, dark, nutty notes and a clean finish worth writing home about...

Sevenlee (1294) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2013
Pours totally black with a brown head. Aroma is malt, roastiness, chocolate, coffee and some spiciness. Taste is light to medium sweet with roastiness leading to a roasty finish. Nice one.

Clear very deep red to black color, brown nice head. Sweet, spicy, roasted, smooth taste. Roasted aftertaste. Smooth, full, thick mouthfeel. Medium bitterness. Sweet, malty, roasted scent. Plenty of lacing left on the glass.
Very nice!

highlandlad (1416) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2013
This characterful, tasty rye porter is one of the better Little Creatures single batches. Would grab a few for winter if it became a part of their regular line-up. It nails the style nicely. Looks terrific. The rich aroma promises much and the beer pretty much delivers. Cacao, dark chocolate, all-spice. Dry finish. Very easy drinking for the strength. Smooth in the swallow. (On tap at Station Bar, Katoomba)

Travlr (10342) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Draft at Beervana. Clear maroon color, small tan head. Aroma of lightly toasted brownies. Taste is lightly spiced brownies and cocoa. Needs a bit more rye.

TenEighty (11) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2013
Pours solid black in appearance, head typical of a porter. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Perfect level of carbonation, to compliment the medium to thick palate. Taste, bitter coca with a smoky finish and a lingering dry bitterness. The beer gets a little sweeter as it warms up. I've been looking for a beer like this all winter, pity it's a single batch.

M_Sack (364) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2013
Thick black with a cappuccino coloured head and heavy lacing. Aromas of dark chocolate, espresso, crushed nuts and roasted malts (perhaps a trace of soy sauce - thanks maneliquor). A long, pleasant and cleansing bitterness wraps itself around a complex dark chocolate, nut and spice flavour profile. The rye provides a fantastic point of difference to a lot of porters. Once again the single batch has nailed it, with a challenging but incredibly drinkable beer.

Brenhophead (547) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2013
1L squealer. Pours deep black with a mocha head. Aroma has camp fire notes with chocolate wafer and a slight spice. Big earthy/spicey notes in the flavour with a bitter coffee backing and a slight nutty creaminess. Goodbye Mr Obadiah, the pleasure was certainly all mine.

bluevegie (3052) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2013
Deep dark brown body with a tan head. Chocolate and coffee on the nose which is not as noticeable in the taste, smooth, pepper and spice coming through. Drinkable.

Davros (1897) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2013
Pours dark brown with a lasting head. Nose shows roasted malt, roasted coffee and biscuity rye. Very similar flavours, but with rich roasty characters throughout. More coffee notes too. Carbonation seems a bit high, could be lowered a bit.
