COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Roll out the Barrel: 7% Alcohol by Volume and 22 IBUs. This American-style porter has robust malt flavor with a slight hop character. Available in the Winter Season on tap and in 16oz cans. Quality Supreme: Porter is crafted in small batches at Trinity Brew House in Providence, RI and Cottrell Brewery in Pawcatuck, CT under the supervision of Brewmaster Sean Larkin. It is brewed with summit hops, black malt, pale malt, roasted barley and ale yeast, and then dry hopped with Amarillo hops. Taste & Enjoy: Gansett Porter offers an extremely approachable craft experience that, unlike many of the other porters on the market, is not overly smoky or bitter. The Narragansett Porter has a deliciously mild chocolate flavor with just a hint of smokiness and hops to balance out the finish. The History: The Porter has been a part of the Narragansett Brewing Company’s lineup for decades, dating back to the 1916 (often found under the name “Narragansett Dark” in bars). Though it was beloved in the Portuguese fishing communities of Fall River and New Bedford, MA, Falstaff decided to abandon it in the ’70s because it was not a true porter. Now it is back and better than ever. As a tribute to the old “Gansett Dark,” today’s Narragansett Porter is milder and more refreshing than most, yet it is a true porter with greater flavor and complexity than its predecessor.

Thin, water, metallic, an extremely poor porter. The original must have blown if they are saying this is better.

magsinva (878) - Virginia, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Can from Sam’s quik stop - aroma is the best thing about this beer, with notes of coffee, malt, and alcohol. Taste is sweetish with a dry chalky thing happening in the mid palate, which I’m not enjoying. Overall, meh.

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Can from Sam’s Quik Stop. Pours dark brown with a half inch of khaki foam. Slight roasted notes on the nose. A bit chalky on the tongue with hints of malt. Clean finish. Solid but not exciting.

Can. Pours a very dark brown color with a light tan head. Nose has a slight coffee note to it, and the taste has some nice smooth roasting notes. It’s a great brew...

ReggieDunlap (3052) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Pours black with a thick mocha head...light ruby hues...nice retention and lacing. Aroma has light smoke, burnt molasses, and tobacco. Flavor is very smoky with burnt notes, molasses, and just a hint of bold coffee. Mouthfeel is medium/full with a roasty molasses/tobacco finish.

16 kz can. Pours clear dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of toasted malts and chocolate. Chocolaty and roasty flavors. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Decent for the price.

Drake (8339) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2012
16 ounce can. Pours a dark brown color with a thin creamy head. Decent head retention. Aroma of roasted malts with a sweet finish. Fairly faint. The taste is sweet malts, some roastiness, faint fruits and leafy hops. Medium bodied. A bit too sweet but still a solid beer.

DocLock (7829) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2012
Pours very dark thick turbid brown, toward black (no ruby here), with 3-finger creamy tan head and copious lacing. Nose is chocolate malt, some definite spicy , peppery, and hoppy hints. Tastes rich, somewhat sweet, witha big chocolate flavor, some carob nibs, roasty chocolate malt, and finishing hints of smokiness and molasses. The hops emerge late, and the palate remains complex and thick and smooth. A wonderful porter.
