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.

12 oz bottle. Aromas of chocolate, caramel; sweet. Pours deep, deep brown with reddish tints. Tastes like an English-style porter; toasted malt, sweet. Creamy mouthfeel. Maybe slightly watery, but not bad at all. These Michelob beers constantly surprise me. Most of the time, these specialty beers from AB are pretty much mediocre to terrible, but every now and then they make a pretty good beer.

I didnít have much expectations for this one, but I actually kind of enjoyed it, a nice easy drinking roasty porter, for those looking for the porter aroma and taste and a beer you can drink a few of, this is a viable option

decaturstevo (5198) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 25, 2009
Dark brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is medium toasted malt, some chocolate, and light coffee. The flavor mirrors the nose with a pretty nice finishing chocolate flavor. A bit fizzy and thin but really an ok porter.

BillKismet (3355) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2009
A solid, easy-drinking, inoffensive porter suitable for beer geeks and swill drinkers alike. In make-up, it is similar to a black and tan style beer. Pours a dark brown body with ok head. Easy coffee and light chocolate nose. Smooth, lightly roasted barley flavor with a balanced finish. A mellow porter.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a small head. This one surprised me; Anheuser Busch managed to make a good beer. It tastes like a real porter, if a bit bland. All the elements are there: roasted malts, smoothness, chocolatey finish. A great beer for the price.

Oscbert (1052) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 15, 2009
~Aroma of roasty, chocolate malts, nuts, and a toasty breadiness. ~Dark brown opaque color with ruby highlights. Small off white head with good retention. ~Moderate strong roasted chocolate flavor, with mild coffee, nuts, and some caramel. ~Medium light bodied with moderate carbonation. Roasty finish. Some astringency. ~ Tasty porter. Well made. If it had a different name Iím sure it would get a better rating....

Bottle. Aroma of mild roast coffee. Amber body with tan head. Mild flavors of chcolate, coffee and roast. Easy on the palate not bad by all means.

I canít help but think a lot of the comments on this beer are negative because this one comes from AB. If some of these reviews were done with a "blind taste-test", I bet this beer would score higher. Nutty flavor with chocolate tones and good aroma, with a nice finish. I was pretty impresed with this one from AB! Good job!

slitcher (266) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2009
Pours a redish brown with a very thin head. Slight aromas of chocolate and brown sugar. Watered down flavor and a very thin body. Not good at all.

aromas of sherry and wet cardboard mingle with better roasty cocoa aromas. the oxidized malts are more present on the tongue. slightly spritzy. overall: not recommended.
