COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich Imperial style porter. Made with a variety of different types of malts that lead to its rich full-bodied flavor. Voted Best Porter of Phoenix by the Arizona Republic.

Immense creamy beige head covers an almost black body. Roasted chocolate dominate the aroma, but a vast cereal and espresso underlying maze offer comfort to those who find the floral and herbal hops a bit too omnipresent. The date, fig and grape notes are genuine in the nose, but have the unpleasant consequence of unveiling tart and almost lactic acidity tha is too much for the roast. Light-medium body, more alcohol presence than most though not out of place.

Sweet, olives and prunes. Mouthy and malty. Quick creosote finish. A bit of a lager aftertaste. Some cola and cocoa.

Draught @ Papago. Pours a dark brown/black, with a very impressive dark brown head. Light lacing. Beautiful looking beer. Aroma is smoky and sweet cream and coffee. Flavor, coffee, and a bitter essence without being bitter, go figure that. Rich and creamy on the tongue. Really enjoyable pint of porter. Looking forward to having again.

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Pours a thick black color, this thing is pretty much opaque and it is topped by a wispy brown head. The aroma is nice, I get notes of concentrated dark malts, and rich burnt caramel. The taste is sweet up front, but then moves to a finish that is dominated by roast notes of espresso, plus that long finish of rich concentrated dark malts, almost a burnt plum or fig thing. This beer is quite light on the palate, at least relatively. This is definitely viscous, just not overly so. Perhaps there is a hint of licorish here, as well as a bit of alcohol in the finish.

On tap at Papago Scottsdale.
Black with a good head but little lacing. Aroma stands out with roast and chocolate. This stout has a medium body with flavors of roasty chocolate,coffee and sweet dark malts. Very good!

Havn’t had many porters. Aroma was of the spice malts. Black body with a tan head. Flavor had hints of roasted malts but wasn’t as rich thus the spicy sweet flavors dominated this one. Alright but maybe will have to have another to get a better feel for this one.

Terminus (3242) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - APR 18, 2005
tap-papago brewing company-Scottsdale, AZ-pours 90% black with a small tan head. nice nutty, roasty aroma with touch of spice (clove). medium body with a low carbonation level. a little cardboardy on the finish. has some ashy components too in the flavors. a pretty solid baltic porter!

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Cask@AzReal Ale fest. A dark, malty morsal rich in the aroma. Roasted malt flavor was a little creamy, full bodied. Coffee and chocolate notes are blended well. The rich, bold flavor meanders through the palate with ease. The no carbonation left this beer with the right flavor and warmth. Nicely done.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2004
Black. Seriously lacking in aroma. A hint of burnt and roasted malts along with dark fruits is present...but barely. Flavor is a truly malt driven experience. Notes of roasted malts, caramel, molasses, chocolate and coffee. Burnt fruits are present as well. Seriously lacking in both aroma and palate and the flavor just couldn’t make up for it. This was terrible.

I had this at the Great Arizona Beer Festival in Phoenix. A thick, rich nice porter but not great.
