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.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2007
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a brown shine and some sediment floating around under a huge brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with strong notes of chocolates, and lighter notes of cocoa. The flavor is sweet with a slight acidic note from hard roasted malt combined with notes of chocolate, leading to a very dry finish.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Pours a dark brown with a reddish hue and a tall and extremely lively, beige, shaving foam style head that just keeps on coming. Sweetish yet lightly burned aroma. Fairly light in body with this heavy carbonation. Burned malt accents, some bitter chocolate and a fairly distinct bitterness in the finish. More of a Stout than a Porter in my book. 160607

bhensonb (10699) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Bomber. Aroma of chocolate, dark roasted malt and arguably coffee. Dark brown with ruby hilites before strong halogen. Creamy dark tan head that sort of laces. Creamy, toasty, a bit chewy, chocolatey, ending with Guinness tastes along with some coffee hints. Chocolate in the nose and the start, but not in the long bitter, toasted finish. Really quite grand.
