COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ruby Chestnut in color and not as heavy as our stout. McGuire's porter will help what ales ya after a hard days work. Chocolate Malt balanced with Willamette Hops gives this full-bodied ale its smooth, distinct flavor.

Fatehunter (1401) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Came in a standard U.S. pint glass. Dark brown color with no head. It had a slight coffee smell. Behind that was an unpleasant sour smell. Tasted like a strong, bitter coffee, then watery. A little roasted malt. The unpleasant smell came forward as a bitter/sour taste. Lighter body and low carbonation. A real disappointment. Watery taste with an off-taste. I asked someone else in my party what they thought of it and they shared the same type of off-taste traits.

italarican (1484) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2014
On tap at the Pensacola brewpub. Pours dark black with creamy off white head. Dry but moderately thick and silky mouthfeel with coffee notes that linger forever. Mild irish stout to start with, earthy coffee and nuts for miles in the finish. Nicely done.

fluffy (1800) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2014
at Brewers Ball 2014. not sure if this is the same as the coffee porter or not, but since a lot of people say it has a lot of coffee flavor, im going with this one.

jbruner (2502) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Pours a translucent black brown on tap with thin lacy cream head that laces nicely. Aroma of toasted chocolate malt, sweet chocolate, and a hint of soy. Taste is a mildly bitter, richly chocolate like porter. Good stuff, better than I was expecting.

ogiergrove (120) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Pours clear medium brown, little head but vigorously carbonated. Nice nutty and mild roasty notes. A pretty light porter (closer to a brown), but a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draft at McGuire’s. Pours a medium-dark porter brown with an off-white head. Nose is roasted malts, big cocoa, and big chocolate with earthy bitterness. Flavor follows: roasted malts, earth, cocoa, and some mild bitterness. Light to medium in body and just a really nice porter overall.
