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...

bluevegie (3053) - 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 (1939) - 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.

CitrusP (59) - Newcastle, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2013
Typical smooth coffee and chocolate aroma. More dark, bitter malt than im used to for a porter but it equates to a very rich and moreish porter. Great mouthfeel, smooth carbonation.

ComradeK (1028) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2013
568ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a small beige head, which lasts fairly well and leaves good lacing. The aroma has strong roasty and milk chocolate notes, with a touch of sweet spice. Citrus and spice hops up front lead into smooth milk chocolate, with nutmeg notes coming through. Roasty malt and cocoa make up the mid-palate, leading into a bittersweet finish. This is another good Little Creatures effort; it is quite complex for a porter, and excellent on a cold winter night.

maneliquor (3104) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2013
Growler from Mane Liquor. Pours dark brown with some ruby edges. A small beige head with good head retention. Nose shows heavy roast and nutty tones - almost soy like. Touch of vanilla and spice there too. Taste shows peppery spice, heavy nutty notes - hazelnuts, light vanilla and balanced mocha tones. Very sessionable and a good balance o flavour there. Works surprisingly well. Definitely one of Creatures better single batches

Jado (527) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2013
From pint bottle. Pours a deep ebony-brown with a lighter highlights at the very edge. Small cream-colored head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, nuts and tobacco. Taste starts out with mild chocolate notes. Roasted malt-coffee bitterness in the mid-palate. Spice at the back end, leading to a lingering spicy finish. Like it.

Aromas of coffee and dark chocolate, taste is exactly the same, the aftertaste lasts and last, a very nice porter, one I would highly recommend

bmeup (520) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2013
Dark and lacy in the glass, served warm (ish). Roast malt, spice, crusty Rye bread and earthy aromas and flavours of a of a baking country kitchen. Needs, needs, needs to be well above tap or fridge temperature to allow this beer to open up and enjoy, cold kills!. Match with a deli platter of cheese, sausage and whatever, good one.
