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.

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.

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 (241) - 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.

Bottle served in a Sam Adams glass. Pours like cola, clear brown with a fizzy tan head. The smell is chocolate and doughy. The flavor is that of chocolate and molasses with a bit of a doughy finish. Body is thin and the carbonation a bit harsh. Quite balanced throughout. Very impressive for a macro.

Not too bad of a porter from a macro. Pours a dark amber with little translucency. Brown head who dissipates quickly. Tastes smooth, but has a lingering burnt nutty taste.

Average porter not bad but not great. Chocolate and coffee malt flavor is present but no real balance between the two. Head was nice and did linger for a time.

Variety Pack Bottle. I was very surprised at how well this porter exceeded my expectations. It was my favorite of the collection featured in the box. The color was a rich dark brown, and the beer poured very well. The head was a creamy tan and stayed in place for an eternity. Very pleasing to the palate, with strong caramel and coffee malt flavors. The hopps seem to be more in the aroma, but were in the background for flavor as well. I was stunned by the quality of this beer, which was very affordable. I’ve paid more for porters that were not nearly as good. Its nice to know I don’t have to pay a lot, or leave the grocery store, to get something this good. Thumbs up

Dark, reddish-brown color with quickly dissipating head. Roasted malt and coffee nose. Malty intro with a well-carbonated mouthfeel leading to a burnt toast, cola, raisin-like finish.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2010 Bottle. Clear brown with tan head. Aroma is pretty weak, somewhat roasted chocolaty. Flavor is decent to good, chocolate malt flavors with a nice roasted tone. The body is a little weak, but overall not a bad beer. I would look elsewhere for a great porter though.
