COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Michelob Porter is brewed using the finest classic aroma hop varieties grown in the Pacific Northwest United States and two-row, caramel and chocolate barley malts, giving it an aroma of coffee and a hint of chocolate. It is dark brown in color and, when held to light, ruby-red highlights can be seen. The porter complements a variety of cheeses, shellfish dishes as well as chocolate desserts, and is best enjoyed when served in a traditional pub style glass.

Enjoyed at my cousin’s house for his son’s 2nd birthday party. When he gave this to me I was a bit hesitant, but he said it wasn’t bad and they do not get many porters in his area. I’d agree, not bad stuff, kinda thin for a porter but still contains those chocolate malts with a bit of coffee.

Bought a six pack on sale for $2.99, couldn’t resist price. Pours dark but clear, with a tan head. Aroma is weak and sweet. Taste is sweet and malty. Palate thins out quickly. Drinkable, but nothing to write home about. You get what you pay for....

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Tastes closer to a schwarzbier than a porter, doesn’t quite have the edge. Decent for what its worth but could be more malty and complex

12 fl oz bottle from Total Wines & More, Clearwater, FL. On January 22, 2011
Clear dark brown color, big light brown head. Sweet, malty, chocolate, metallic scent, some apples. Sweet, vinous, raissin, chocolate taste. Chocolate aftertaste. Medium thin mouthfeel, low bitterness.

BillWyce (698) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Poured a deep chocolatey-brown with a good-sized tan head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate. Smooth mouthfeel, slightly light, slightly oily. Smooth chocolate flavor with notes of coffee and a slight fruitiness in the finish. A solid brew. Not outstanding, but FAR better than the usual from A-B.

OTownKnight (38) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2010
12oz. bottle poured into glass. Pours a dark brown/very dark amber color with an off white head. Aroma is of dark roast and chocolate. Has the same characteristics as any other porter. More watery than most I’ve had. It leaves a dark, chocolate aftertaste but the first impression is almost like a generic pale lager. I’m biased towards porters so I gave this one a pretty good rating, but there are better porters out there. 13/20

rougeau13 (1942) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Bottle. Pours dark brown with almost no head. Sweet taste and aroma of roasted coffee. Thin and weak for a porter, but off the charts for a Budweiser product

moseefus (79) - Little Rock, Arkansas, USA - JUL 14, 2010
Pours a deep mohagany with a thin head. Very little nose and the palate is a little roasted barley but over all not good. Sorry If you’ve had it.

alexanderj (3297) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Bottle; Used most to cook with. Dark cola brown. Aroma of caramel and roasted oats. Flavor was ok; a bit harsh, but ok. Actually tasted like the style, which was surprising

Edmoe (239) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Black with tan head. Almost no aroma...faintly malty. Flavor is modest malt...hint of chocolate. Clean finish. Ok mouthfeel. Not bad for a macro.
