COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This bottle of Pullman's Porter is hand-made from choice domestic barley malt and fresh whole-flower hops. This rich, dark, hoppy brew is made in the style enjoyed by porters in Nineteenth century England.

Dark brown color with a nice thick creamy tan head. The aroma was bitter and metallic with a well-roasted character. The flavor was hoppy bitter with a strong metallic aftertaste. Medium thin feel...well carbonated. I really didn't dig this porter...too much of a metallic character.

Pours a Dark ruby brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is mostly crystal and roasted malts. Semi-sweet chocolate and coffee body. Moderate hoppiness throughout with a dry roasted bitter finish. Decent porter, but somewhat thin and uninteresting.

Looks like a fantastic porter. Opaque, dark brown with large frothy head. Aroma of carmel and hops, mainly hops. I'm beginning to think of Mcneills as being a one trick pony, with an abundance of hops in everything they brew. Its a trick I like, but...The body of this brew is fairly thin. There is a carmelize body to this brew and some roast flavors. It has a moderate to high amount of bitterness in both the flavor and the finish. I wish it had more of the carmel or toffee type flavors. For a hopped Porter I'd go with Avery's New World, but this one is pretty good too!

not what i expected...very hoppy aroma... possibly amarillo(certainly not what i would imagine in a porter though) flavor is subtle though, just very smooth, a very drinkable beer. great color and body, just what a porter should be in these respects. overall a good beer, but i like others of theirs more

Nice roasted aroma. Body seemed a little thin. Might have gotten a contaminated bottle because i picked up a touch of sourness...will need to get ahold of another bottle to compare. i am sure this would be a great brew based on the others I have had, but will have to wait and see.

7/30/01 One of this brewery’s most popular beers, but not IMHO one of their best. A well-hopped, smooth and not terribly sweet example of the robust style, it’s not really all that distinctive, and has little in the way of nose. The nicely colored head consists of very large bubbles which break and stay in the glass a long while -- not terribly appetizing to me. Good color.

11/02: Liked the dry-roasted, faintly chocolaty espresso nature much more this time around; very rich and smooth on the finish, but the hops are there, and just right. Black currants, krisbierjaeger? Yes, I think maybe so. The most drinkable porter I’ve had; could probably do five pints of this in a row without getting bored or sick.

the label is a tragic cry for help. perhaps local fourth graders submitted design proposals in crayon and this one accidently got sent to the printer instead of the winner. the beer is the real winner, however, no mix up there. brown as prime potting soil, dark orange at the edges. the head is trimmed pretty close to the upper contours of the beer, a shade of roasted peanut. gorgeous green mountain pines in the aroma, ripe plum, polished leather; the dry roasted malt aspects, usually dominate in porters, come along finally and with some humility to suggest a bit of coffee. the flavor is great, robust, blackcurrant and coffee, lindt’s dark chocolate, gentle sweetness and silky smooth. bitterness stretches back beyond the tonsils and along the oral gutters beside the molars to brush every surface with tangy hop-butter. a porter of profound pulchritude.

On tap at the brewery: Solid dark black/brown hue. Roasted aroma. Chocolate, coffee, caramel, pine, molasses. Medium to full bodied mouthfeel, creamy and velvety smooth. The finish is astonishing. Tons of hops, great bitterness, with pine needles and flowers. I can’t get enough of these guys. I recommend this brewery to anyone. Such awesome brews, and nobody knows the treasures in southern VT.
