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 Alembic. A decent porter. I don’t know if it’s quite "one step away from being a stout" though, unless that step is a big step in fullness of palate. Black color with a medium tan head. Aroma is mostly roasted malts and coffee. Hops apparent. Flavor is roasty with a coffee taste that lingers at the end. Medium palate, maybe a little thinner than I’d like.

Cask. Pours a black color with a large, tan head. Nice malted milk ball aroma. Thin body, toast and malts dominate here. Bitter, burnt finish.

bhensonb (13726) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 26, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Toasted malt aroma. Dark opaque black color with no real head. Near medium body with minimal carbonation. Light roast (touch of toast) malt with floral bitter and a hint of coffee. Finishes dry, but not astringently so. Really rather refreshing in a dark way.
