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.

Hummm...what can one say about this beer! I tastes as good as it looks! It is worth a try! However, if your into cheap domestics, stay away! You will hate it! I would guess the low opinions by some is due to this?

Persistent hop bitterness, more than what I like in a porter,and a rather syrupy start.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2004 A complex offering from a solid New England micro. The nose gives off a distinct coffee-like aroma - kinda grainy too. The color is deep, dark brown. A roasted, malty taste is the predominate flavor component. Smokey at times. Tobacco? Little hop flavor. The palette is sharp and cutting, but a bit too thin compared to what the color might suggest. Good transitions from beginning to end. Overall a good interpretation of the style.

Otter Creek is a top notch New England micro, and they have created a top notch porter. A rich roasted barley malt flavor, beautifully balanced with hop. Nice dark black color, with a nice creamy tan head. Great roasted malt and hop aroma. Overall, the best porter I’ve found.

I nice dark smokey porter that is more like a Scotch Ale then the Winter’s ale.

Black/red...ok head,roasty malt aroma, nice roasty taste, hints of chocolate,something else..something herbal maybe..it was weird..unpleasant..i tasted it in the pale ale as well..maybe a house thing. A good sharp porter,...pretty damn good after having it a few times..anchor is still the best...so far

Roasted, smokey and bitter. I thought this one was incredibly good.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 31, 2001
Nice, strong, complex aroma, with coffee and smoke most predominant. Typical color; quick-dissolving head. Very bitter, but with nice body; hardly any sweetness, which I expect a little of even in the robust style; not much exciting on the palate. Typical product from this brewer; ok.

smokey sweet aroma. Nice amount of carbonation. Reddish-brown with a little lace. Good bitterness. Love the smokey flavors.

Dark mahogany; light coffee nose; mellow palate with a good bit of smoke; thin in the finish.
