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.

Well its come out of retirement thanx to brewmaster Ed Canty and his partners at Orlando Brewery.This was fresh on tab straight out of the brewery behind the tap wall.They tell me that they are the only organic brewery in the South East.This was real good, probaly one of the best porters I have had.Poured black as night with a nice tan head.Had a medium mouthfeel with a slight silky slide to it.Roasted malts and coffe are dominant.No bitterness whats so ever.Welcome back.

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.

On tap at the Cricketeer’s Arms in The Mercado in Orlando. This is served in the tradition of Real Ale at a warmer temperature and pulled from a hand engine. Extremely dark black in color with a fluffy pale head. Must have a lot of black patent malt in there. Great coffee and roasty aroma. Burnt flavor that is indeed quite dry. This is a very fine porter served in a town that does not know good beer. Seek this one out, pilgrim. Forget the Mouse.

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.

Pours a dark brown nearly black with a small tan head. Aroma has coffee and chocolate notes. Tastes very much as expected for style with just the right amount of bitterness.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2009 Cask at the Cricketeer’s Arm. Served by a big dude named Red. It is indeed chock full of coffee, toffee, coffee, chocolate and roasty notes. very dry finish and as I can readily attest HIGHLY drinkable. Great stuff.

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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Sample @ brewery taproom. Opaque black-brown. Great smokey aroma is super toasty and very rich. Low carbonation. A little burnt in the flavors but that adds some dryness. A nice sessionable tipple.

A lite porter. Lite to medium bodied. Dark in color. Nice aromas. The label is awesome. Tried this at the tap room as part of a sample packet.
