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.

oh6gdx (20247) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2007
Bottled (thanks heemer77!). Deep reddish/black colour with mediumsized brown bubbly head. Aroma is chocolate, malts and some slight hops. Flavour is malts, chocolate and coffee along with some slight hoppy bitterness. Rather tasteful and drinkable beer, which leaves a big dark chocolate aftertaste.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2008
Medium brown. Roasty, chocolatey aroma with cheap coffee. Thin, lightly toasty. Really lame. All-malt...really? It’s just too thin.

bhensonb (10797) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Bottle. Nearly opaque brown color with a minimal beige/tan head. Light chocolate notes over toasted malt. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. Flavor is primarily toasted malt. There is a little chocolate, and likely some hop bitter. It finishes decently dry, and it’s very drinkable. Possibly the best A-B product I’ve ever had. It’s a respectable porter.

Bottle from sampler case. Pours dark brown with an average frothy light brown head that was lasting with fair lacing. Moderate roasted coffee nutty aroma. Medium to full body. Balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of an average duration. Drinkable porter.

hopscotch (8890) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Bottle... Pours very dark and sits almost black in the glass. Its crystal clear crimson hue is only revealed when held up to the Sun. Mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. The aroma holds back notes of caramel, chocolate, coffee and light diacetyl until the brew warms to room temperature. Medium-bodied and milky with gentle carbonation. Well-balanced, but fairly bland with a muted mocha flavor. Tilts just a whisker toward the sweet side of balance. Finishes chocolaty and bittersweet. A pleasant surprise, actually. A bit underrated. Probably more like a nut brown than a porter, but it’s a nice little beer.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2008
12 oz. bottle from a sampler. Chocolate brown pour with a one-finger head and low head retention. Very, very faint aroma is straight roasted malt. Roasted malt taste with bitter coffee notes. Medium bodied. Not bad.
