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.

(06.21.07) On tap at Magnolia Pub and Brewery. 4.95% ABV. Black opaque with medium tan head. No discernable carbonation. Roasted burnt wood aroma. Starts dry with light roasted malt flavor with noticable burnt wood flavor. Medium length finish with some lingering hop bitterness. Medium bodied. The flavor significantly improves as the beer warms up. Good easy drinking porter but on the thin watery side.

On tap at Magnolia, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of toasted malt, light espresso, and unsweetened powdery cocoa. Flavour brings out toasted malt and powdery unsweetened bitter cocoa. Smooth, dry, and powdery on the plate. Solid porter.

Draft... Dark brown, ok tan head... Nose of roasted chocolate, with cocoa nibs... Taste is a bit of a letdown, roasted cocoa nibs, a vegetal note and a bitter vanilla finish, all over the place... So so

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.
