Steelhead Scotch Porter is a unique twist on a tradional style. Balanced with dark roasted barley and crystal malts, with the perfect blend of peated malt for a subtle smokey flavor.

Bottle. Nearly black with a modest light tan head. Medium roasty aroma with some nuts and licorice. Medium bodied. Sweetish and malty with firmish roasted flavours and a dry, moderately bitter and slightly smokey finish. Straightforward and satisfying.

"Good body. Tighter on the carbonation than I like, which takes away from the smoothness of the beer. Bigger than a lot of Porter’s though, which makes it a recomended beer."

nuplastikk (4698) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2014
12oz bottle. Scotch Porter is a style that I associate with brewpubs of 10-15 years ago. Deep opaque brown-black body, creamy beige head. Roasty sweet cocoa aroma. The smoke is a little bit awkward, giving it a slightly oil feel, accentuating the specialty malts a little too much. Still a pretty respectable product, but not exactly World Class.

Fatehunter (1380) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Pours a finger of light tan head on a dark brown body. The aroma is roasted malt and a little chocolate. The taste incredible. Roasted malt, chocolate move to a smoky and woody finish. Only a hint of bitterness. Smooth and soft texture. Excellent flavor profile.

A black beer with a small tan head and flecks of yeast. The aroma is smoky malt, chocolate, and licorice. The flavor is bitter cocoa, grain, and licorice.
