COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A mild bitterness and a spicy aroma balance this perfect blend of caramel, coffee, and subtle roasted malt flavors. This brew emphasizes smooth, chocolatey goodness. A complex malt body gives this porter its robust character. Hops are present, yet almost untraceable on the foreground of the palate. Beneath a solid head of dark tan, our porter is black in color and highlighted with auburn hues. This brew tastes as deep as it looks and at 6% ABV, is stronger than most in its class. Dedicated to Shastafarians near and far, we salute the mountain that unites and refreshes us all.

a fairly dark and flavorful porter. medium bodied and alittle dry. the roasted malt aspect is done well, and there are also hints of chocolate and coffee and hops on the nose and in the flavor. fairly simple, but nice."

Davhgbrew (943) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Big chocolate aroma. Huge coffee flavor. Palate is medium full. Moderate carbonation bite, which compliments the nice body throughout. This is an excellent porter, borderline stout with its body and roastiness.

mcberko (6704) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
On tap at The Weed Alehouse / Mt Shasta Brewing, pours a deep dark amber brown with a medium beige head. Nose is restrained, with notes of coffee and roast. Flavour brings out a pleasant mix of coffee and chocolate. Thin body, but nice flavours. Not a bad porter.

Bottle. Pous a dark black brownish pour with a small head. Nose is week chocolate with a hint of alocohol. Taste is much better than the nose, with roasty coffee chocolate notes. Desent flavor, light and drinkable. Finishes on the same chocolate roasted notes. Quaff Score 7 / 10

shigadeyo (3026) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013

7/13/2011: Shastafarian Porter... Aroma: Chocolate cocoa, vanilla; slight mineral characteristic; rich, high grade espresso. Appearance: Really deep, dark mahogany color, opaque; firm brown head; this is a really attractive porter! Flavor: Wow, really good, complex, and interesting flavor that has held up very well... Smoky chocolate and char, rich roasty and caramelized malts, muted licorice, black tea, soft espresso, chocolate milk finish. Palate: Medium-bodied; good thickness, slightly soft. Overall: This is a REALLY nice brew that has held up fantastic over the years; I’d love to have a few more bottles of this to enjoy; super sessionable porter!

12 fl. oz. bottle (Alc Vol 6.0 %) via trade from kenb in 200?. Thank you! Rating #132 for this beer.

coreyc1221 (260) - Truckee, California, USA - APR 29, 2013
Sweet smell and beige head. There’s definitely a caramel and coffee taste at first the it goes in the nutty/vanilla direction in the aftertaste. Tastes lighter than it looks. Not to say it’s light, the color is just a very dark brown. Would be great in cold settings.

Bottle in Cannon Beach. This was a surprisingly good porter. I expected it to be gimmicky but was pleasantly surprised.
