COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic dry porter with coffee, toffee and roasty notes in both the aroma and flavor. Black in color with a refreshingly dry finish. Reminiscent of the porters of old before the days of stouts.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2007
On draft at The Ravenous Pig. Thin looking, dark cola-brown body. A small light tan head quickly dissipates to a wispy film. Minimal, tiny dot lacing noted. The aroma shows dry roasted barley, roasted coffee, and not a whole lot else. The flavor shows primarily bitter coffee, roasted grains and perhaps a little bit of woodsy oak. Medium duration coffee finish. Very thin, weak body for the style. Over- carbonation makes for an unpleasant, fizzy mouthfeel. Dry and roasty throughout. One-dimensional and uninteresting. Not something I would go back to.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 On tap at WaZoo. Roasted coffee flavors. Creamy notes of chocolate. I had some with a sampling of tiramisu. It was incredible!

hopscotch (9498) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Draft... Clear, very dark (almost black) ale... burnt orange when held up to bright light Small, creamy, off-white head with decent staying power. The aroma and flavor are all about chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Lightly acidic, moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium-bodied and creamy with very mild carbonation. Dry, astringent finish.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 10, 2007
On tap. Pours almost black with a huge, dark brown, very stable head. The aroma on this is great. Malty, roasty, coffee, and chocolate all come through strong and balanced. The taste is similar but not nearly as strong as the aroma promised. Dry and just a bit too watery. If this would have tasted as good as it smelled this could be a real winner. As it is it’s still a pretty good porter.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 6, 2007
On tap at Florida Brewers Guild Fest 2007. Poured deep dark brown with nice light brown head. The aroma is light and seems sort of sweet plus slight roasted maltiness. Flavor comes off a bit creamy but when I concentrate on the flavor it starts off smooth and somewhat neutral. About midway the roasted and burnt malts start to become distinct. A nice session Porter

FBG 07. Coffee malts in the nose. Well-contained smoky sweetness. Thick, dark brown, pretty white head. Chocolate malt porter taste, creamy mouthfeel. Somewhat thin and uncomplex.

Pours dark with nice brown head. Medium bodied, with hints of coffee and malt. Bitter when you first start drinking, then it disapates. My favorite beer at this brewery.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2006
I think, by far, the best beer at OBP. Deep brown with a tan head. Robust coffee and chocolate flavors. Slightly oily palate that suits it quite well. Well-bittered on the back end. If I said that it was the best porter brewed locally, I wouldn’t be lying.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2006
Pours dark brown, big tan head. Great very different porter, I’ve never had a dry porter it was like guiness meets a damn good dark beer. Very smooth and easy to drink, mainly a coffee and dark chocolate flavor with some hop bitterness.
