COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a traditional porter, made to warm the bones. Nearly black in color, Stovepipe Porter has a rich palate and a roasted, hoppy and slightly herbal aroma.

This beer poured a very dark amber color and formed a light tan head that left some lace. It had an aroma of burnt coffee and chocolate. The flavoer was of coffee and chocolate. The body was light than some other porters I have had. This is not a bad porter, and worth checking out, but certainly not near the top for this style.

Found a small head on this porter. Nice dark color. Herbal for a porter. Caramel coffee aroma. Kinda hoppy finish. Try it.

Discofish (152) - USA - OCT 12, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2003 I found this porter rather bland, not much in the way of malts. Packed with hops and rather thin. Finish is a little bitter.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2002
Very dark, opaque body with a medium tan head. Aromas and flavors of roasted coffee and toffee. Slightly bitter finish. Smooth porter.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 15, 2002
Dark ruby espresso hue. Coffe/dark chocolate aroma. Head is quickly diminishing. Not a great porter. Nice roasted caramel malts, light to medium bodied, coffee finish with some nice hop bitters.

Holdwine (1077) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 2, 2002
So dark brown, its almost black. Nice coffee overtones to go with the heavy roasting. Drinks well.

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2002
Big roasted aroma. Nice balance in the body. Finishes slightly dry and thin.

Darkover (1517) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2002
Dark brown color (you can see through it), roasted aroma, small head that disapears fast. Strong roasted flavor. Burnt finish.

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - JUL 25, 2002
brown like oven drippings or au jus sauce, reddish salients, clear. a soft tan head does it’s job and keeps the top covered while foamy curls etch the glass. moderate nose of medium to dark roast malt, with a little fig, dried cherry perhaps, suggesting sweetness. that sweetness is bumped out of consideration by hops that try to push to the front of the line. nicely balanced, smooth and very tasty. being this well constructed, it would be a 4.0 beer if only it were fuller.
