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...

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!

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.

maneliquor (3009) - 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

hawthorne00 (2374) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2013 Bottle. Pretty much black with a beige head that laces well and never disappears. Earthy aroma with bread crusts, spiced chocolate, coffee, hazelnuts. Silky mouthfeel, medium-bodied. Not very sweet at all, with overdone breadcrusts, coffee, nuts, chocolate, grass. A fair bit of bitterness that lingers with spicy rye notes at the very dry end. Started around 11C and really grew on me as it warmed. Complex, original, very well balanced. Cue Etta James. [3.9]

Overt rye spiciness fading a bit. Can’t say I mind. Very fine drop indeed.

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle from BlackHearts&Sparrows. Very tasty. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, hints of coffee. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Black, with a frothy head.

Davros (1869) - 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.

highlandlad (1413) - 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)
