COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the old porters of Ireland, our porter is super-rich and velvety. It is deep brown in color, with richly roasted and chocolate-y flavors. Like all Marin Brewing Company Ales, this contains no preservatives and is not heat-pasteurized.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2010
Pours an average amber/brown with an aroma of cocoa chocolate. Flavor is smoky and earthy vegetable. Average and tingly on the tongue. Too earthy.

yemenmocha (658) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Pours a luxurious deep brown to almost black with gigantic tan head. Nose is outright amazing with roasty malts, and some bacon bits like aromas too from all the roast. Lighter bodied than anticipated, but there’s a smooth and rich roasty flavor that carries through nicely. It’s surprisingly drinkable for all that roastiness. Nice beer.

larryLSB (439) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Poured from Growler, fresh today! Dark Brown with small dark tan head that dissipated quickly. Nose was chocolate, malt, and the taste was on the sweet side with just minimal bitterness. Medium to thick body. Overall a decent porter, on the sweet side.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Growler from the brewpub, thanks to larryLSB. Close to black, but relatively transparent with red edges, and a small beige head. Creamy chocolate aroma with just a little roast. Generally sweet with chocolate malt flavors, some caramel, touch of roasted malt, and very subtle hops. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Pretty clean, but not very interesting.

marcus (6785) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 7, 2010
On tap at Toronado. Pours dark brown with a rich tan head and a chocolate and coffee aroma. There is a nice chocolate malt flavor, not quite as rich as it looks, but still quite tasty. Nice brew.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2010
Plenty of chocolate in the nose with some underlying roasted malt character. Almost opaque dark brown body with ruby highlights topped by a tan-brown, fine bubbled head that lasts well. Sweet chocolate flavours play off roasted and fruity notes in the flavour. Medium body is velvety smooth in texture with light prickly effervescence to offer counterpoint. Overall, quite an enjoyable porter. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle purchased at Brewery Creek in Fall 2009.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2009
Bomber. Pours black with brown tinges, and huge, foamy dark-brown head. Aroma is sweet malt, with some chocolate and roast. Flavor is heavily roasted malt, chocolate with a little sweetness, and bit of acidity from the roasted/burnt malt. Velvety mouthfeel. Pretty solid.

alexanderj (3339) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2009
On tap a few weeks back; I believe at Blue Palms. Poured a very dark brown color. Aroma of cocoa, dust, chalk and roasted malt. Flavor was sweet, with some milky notes, caramel, cocoa, and roasted malt. Chalky, sweet and smooth. A pretty solid beer.

travita (4168) - Frisco, Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2009
The look is black in color, dark, and has a tan colored head. The smell is chocolate, coffee, nuts, malts, and roasty. The taste is roast, malts, coffee, and chocolate.

manuchampions (1238) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 14, 2009
Pours very dark with a thin tan head. Nose was subdued with a little roasted malt evident. Taste was more complex than expected. Nice roasted coffee notes with dark chocolate undertones as well as a dry slightly sweet finish. Very good.
