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.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
(On tap) 4.3% ABV in my version. A black and opaque beer with the most beautiful and delicate, creamy, beige head leaving a broad curtain of laces. Aroma of lightly burned malts. Fairly light-bodied with accents of hard roasted malts - and then nothing much more. The bitterness is light and short. A light and very elegant British style session Porter. 210307

omhper (19322) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Black, near no head. Tarry licorice aroma. Aggresive resiny hops makes up most of the flavour. Dryish, yet syrupy. Tarry roasty finish. Some interesting flavours, but feels quite rough.

Tasting Notes from Fall 2000: A stouty porter, good flavor, more bitterness than normal. Quite a treat

bhensonb (10933) - 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.

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.

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.

Cask @ Magnolia. Pitch black, pale malt flavor before a sharp coffee note. Sweet nuts and berries in the nose. I like it.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours with a opaque black body with brown highlights. Head is tan and mostly lasting. Aromas are dusty, cocoa, earthy, vanilla, coffee, leather, dry leaves. Bitter but yet quite rich chocolate notes for a porter. Nice bready malt profile. No hops, mostly clean yeast wise. Flavors are dry, roasty, coffee, roasted barley, leather, bitter, ashy. Lightly bready. Medium to low carbonation, dryish finish. Roasty and lightly astringent. Slight carbonic or mineral bite in the finish. Well made.
