Motor City Honey Porter is a full bodied, creamy dark ale with a distinct roasted malt flavor and chocolate overtones. A touch of pure Michigan clover honey adds a subtle sweetness to this smooth, well balanced ale.

Dark brown black opaque with very little head. Slightly malty nose with hints of coffee. Taste is slightly coffeeish. Creamy with dark chocolate notes. Light body. Finishes slightly bitter in a good way.

Aroma is sublet roastiness. Looks fine dark. Taste is light. Metallic like a porter but pretty light and boring. Palate is watery. Hops are ok. Overall pretty average. Nothing special. Simple.

Bottle at home. Pours a dark brown with a medium head. Aroma is roast and some chocolate. Flavor is very roasty with some chocolate. Also a good bit of smokiness. Medium bodied. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle. Brown with small head. Below average porter with some honey sweetness that doesn’t really fit. Thin body. Definitely not "well balanced".

chucklemation (674) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a tan foam head. Has a light aroma of roasted malts. Flavor is sweet roasted malts. A bit too light in body and flavor, but still enjoyable.

A borderline pour-down-the-sink porter. No particular aroma that could be associated with a porter. The taste was tingly sharp on the tongue and there was an unpleasant thinness to the body. Maybe I got a bottle that was all honey and nothing else, but this one--purchased at the brew pub--was nasty.

deyholla (7587) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a dark brown with a slightly yellowish brown head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a honey note that was back by darker malts and a slight roasted note. Flavor was sweet honey with slight roast and some coffee coming through in the finish. The beer had a nice creamy mouthfeel.

Shared pint at the brewpub. This beer presents an interesting combination. Overall, quite sweet with almost milky character, but slightly smoky as well. Respectable. (#3811, 1/23/2010)
