COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a full-bodied porter, one step away from being a stout. Black in color, full of sharp black malt bitterness and a hint of roast barley, Cole Porter also bursts forth with a surprising hop aroma and flavor.

On tap at the brewpub. Black with a creamy, light brown head. Solid roast, also deep bitter chocolate notes. Black beauty.

Capa (2029) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAR 29, 2011
Nearly black with minimal head. Aroma has a light roasted malt profile, a medium coffee note, light chocolate. Similar in flavor with a light earthy hop presence, too. An excellent porter. Wish I could have had a few more while I was there. (Cask at the pub)

A: The pour is a very dark brown, almost black, with some reddish highlights and a khaki colored head. S: Very roasty, especially for a porter, with perhaps a bit of burnt sugar. There are some nice coffee aromas and I would say some bitter dark chocolate is in there as well. Maybe even a hint of licorice. T: Once again, an intense roasted malt character to the beer. There’s a moderate bitterness associated with that and a muted chocolate flavor. A pretty decent amount of coffee, too. This beer seems fairly dry. M: The body is medium and so is the carbonation. As I said, pretty dry on the back end. D: I’d actually consider drinking this again. I like this beer quite a bit, probably one of the better Magnolia beers.

Draft at the brewpub. Dark brown pour, light tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate, molasses, a small amount of coffee, and some nice hops in the finish. Nice drinkable porter.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2010
Enjoyed on tap at Magnolia. Awesome porter, although served on the cold side. Black with some brown head and brown lace.Roast aromas rght there. Bold flavours, with great coffee yet I am not a coffee drinker. Mild 30 IBU. Creamy big mouthfeel, though offset by somewhat much carbonation. Good drinkability. Some expresso.

jarow (237) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 7, 2010
On tap at Magnolia’s. Poured black with a nice toffee colored head. More complex and full-bodied than many other porters. I’d still prefer a stout most of the time but this was a good one to try and very drinkable.
