Rich with roasted and caramel flavors, John Q. Porter sports a dark brown color and a spicy, herbal, floral hop aroma. A rich coffee-like roast character with cocoa and caramel undertones emerges, and the finish is mile, balanced and smooth. Enjoy John Q Porter while it lasts!

Dark, nutty brown colour. . . full bubbly tan head. Blackberry hop aroma with sweet truffles, almond oils, peanuts and a light alcohol tang. Roasted bitterness that makes for a fresh start on the tongue. Flavour turns fruity and sweet - cherries, plums and raisins. Slight peppery spice in the finish, enjoyable.

Fairly non-descript. A lot of milk chocolate, some softly roasted coffee, and oak notes in the body. Toffee aroma.

Dark brown body with almost no head. Lightly roasted aroma with some nice chocolate and toasted, buttered bread. A nice tasting, straight forward porter. Well done.

Leftover from the Chicago Real Ale Dinner at Rock Bottom Chicago. Yes, I broke my Lenten abstenence from beer just for the Real Ale Fest. A dark brown, almost murky body beneath a bubbly, clingy brown head. Smell is enchanting. Has an appropriately "cask" mouthfeel, low carbonation. Slight roast coffee notes among the roasted malts, and a bit peppery and smoky. Would have thought this was low in alcohol, but the second one the bartender gave me knocked me over. Not extreme in the Edmund Fitzgerald sense, but pleasant.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 5, 2004
At Rock Bottom Chicago Real Ale Dinner: Deep brown with reddish highlights producing a small tan head and good lace. The aroma hints of caramel malts, toffee, cherries, apple, floral hops, and a dusty yeast ester. The taste starts with sweet mocha tones with underlying bitterness. A light fruity sourness is detected. The finish is woody, smoky, and some coffee grinds notes. Medium-bodied with a chalky and sticky mouthfeel. The cask ageing adds some nice complexity to this porter, recommended if you can find some.

Very dark brown, with a tan bubbly head. Roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. An average mouthfeel led way to a roasted taste.
