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.

Pleasantly surprised by this beer. Although I personally wouldn’t buy it, it was probably an average porter if uninspired. Thin mouthfeel, but redeemed itself with very pleasing coffee notes and overall smoothness. One of the better major beer company attempts at a legitimate beer.

Pours a dark brown. Aroma of chocolate/coffere. Flavors pretty much the same as the nose.

"a little thin for a porter...maybe more on par with an average american brown ale. not bad, but not something worth buying again, especially with all the more robust porters out there. "

The body has a thick, dark brown color with deep crimson highlights. On top sits a creamy light tan head that builds up tall before fading down to a thin covering that just hangs on till the last sip. The lacing is slick and slides down the glass just behind the head. The aroma is very sweet. There is a lot of sweet roasted malt with hint of caramel and chocolate. Also there is a very slight non-descript hop presence coming though as well. There is a big roasted malt sweetness with notes of honey, dark caramel and toffee. In it there are some light coffee and dark chocolate tones as well. Hop flavor is very modest but adds some bitterness and mild piney notes. The roasted flavor and light bitterness quickly fades off the tongue in the finish. The body is about medium with a very creamy and slick on the tongue. Its carbonation is soft but still in good balance

Bottle from 2007 as a joke at a bottle share. Pour is reddish brown with barley noticeable tan head. Aroma and flavor include faint chocolate, coffee, and hop bitterness. Actually not too terrible.

December 2009. From bottle. Pours very dark brown with a short tan head. Some roasted malt characteristics, chocolate, but too watery to really be good.

Bottle. Possibly the worst porter on earth. They get points for giving it a go though. Far too sweet.

355 mL bottle. Not a bad intro to the style. No head, and a little thin, but the flavour is decent, if a little one-dimensional. A little sweet up front - could use a touch of roast.

12 oz bottle pours dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma is malt and a bit of sweet chocolate. Taste is the same with a hint of coffee

reddish brown, clear...small light tan head. Nose is cola and chocolate. Decent chocolate taste, fairly sweet, it’s easily drinkable and a bargain to boot. It’s REALLY not bad, actually , considering it’s a macro from a giant corporation...I think it deserves a good rating for just that reason. I’d keep a six around for kicks. Above average offering from A-B...

Bottle. Pours crimson brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is malty with hints of chocolate and some hops. Watery and malty with some chocolate and coffee notes. A hint of hop bitterness in the finish. Drinkable. 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.
