COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Check out Pike’s new seasonal Post Alley Porter named for the 104 year old “thoroughfare,” a brick paved alley from the waterfront with a steepness that would allow a dray carrying a wagon-load of fish up to the Pike Place Public Market. The main entrance to the Pike Brewery is on Post Alley. The beer is a robust porter, smooth with a slight sweetness and a velvety head. Look for Pike Post Alley Porter on draft and in 22 oz bottles. Cheers!

Damn! This is one tasty porter. Large malty roasty chocolately flavor. Hints of tobacco and licorice. Body is above average fullness with a nice velvety finish. Very solid classic example! Price is good to boot!

kramer (4939) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown, almost black body with a small fizzy light brown head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is rich and chocolaty with a strong burnt caramel and molasses quality. Fairly light on the hops. The flavor is pretty nice, certainly a robust Porter. Heavy chocolate and molasses sweetness with a nice dry roastiness on the finish. Medium to full bodied with soft gentle carbonation and a little lingering burnt caramel. Really nice robust porter.

Draft at the brewery. Pours black with a dense and creamy dark tan head. Mild chocolatey roasty nose. Creamy thick body. Soft carb. Roasty, chocolatey mid palate. Long dry finish. Very approachable and enjoyable, but pretty dialed back.
