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.

Pullman’s Porter is a jet black porter with a nose of raisins and citrus. It has strong notes of baker’s chocolate and espresso coffee.

One of the finest tasting porters one can sample. Smooth silky and dark and tasty, similar to Halley Barry.

This is what a porter should be...rich, creamy; lacy head with good retention, thick maltiness with bitter hop profile. Excellent!

World class porter from America’s premier micro-brewery (as far as I am concerned). McNeills had it on the handpump one time I was there and I give that a 5.0.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2005 Cheers to Firemoose for sending this bottle. This is how porter is supposed to smell. Rich and roasty like premium coffee. Black with a finger thick, but diminishing white head. Yum. I’m sure this loses ratings for it’s thin palate, but taste wise this is spot on. More roasted coffee flavors and a touch of smokiness. An imminently sippable brew. Nicely done.

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.

Pours a dark chocolate brown that leaves a thick tan head that stays with this brew. The aroma is so pleasant caramel, brown sugar, fresh cut grass over tones, followed by a herbal spiced hop presence. The taste starts bitter, a very aggresive bite that is quickly subdued by a sweetness of vanilla, oak, and caramel sugar. The finish is strong coffee and bittersweet cocoa, this is a lovely porter...thanks to BA LeeMarvin for bring this sample back from VT for me!

22oz bottle via trade with 46er3498 - Thanks Tom - Pours dark brown with a short tan head that stayed well and laced some. Nice aroma of coffee, roasted malts, and some nice pine hops. Flavor is good roasted malts, coffee, a little cocoa, and some smoke and at the finish some brief pine hops. Medium body with some carbonation and a soft smooth mouthfeel. Very nice porter

Pours hazy deep blackish with minimal tan head. Aroma of pumpernickly bread, roasty malt, chocoff, some almonds. Tastes rich, roasty malty, with chocoff, nuts, and more pumperkickly bready malt.
