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!

Black color with tan head. Dark roast, chocolate, pale malt aromas. Smooth medium body. Medium roast malt flavors with dry chocolate, and a mild ashy, tobacco astringencey--almost good

WheatKing (1279) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2012
Contains what I’m looking for in this style. Moderate roastiness, lots of caramel, coffee, some chocolate. Not too viscous. Not one to blow the drinker away, but gosh darn I love a well made porter.

Beerenberger (1386) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Malt forward aroma, caramel, and dark fruit . Pours black with a aggressive, mostly diminishing tan head and minor lacing. Taste is malt, coffee, caramel, hints of chocolate and a nice hoppy bitterness at the end. Medium-full bodied with mild carbonation. Smooth. Overall, I found this to be a very smooth and enjoyable porter.

Bottle: Dark brown with a finger of tan head. Mild roast in the nose, followed by bittersweet cocoa and a little earthy. Tastes of roasted malt, earthy, and faint coffee. Medium to bordering on mild in the intensity dept. Ok.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle:   Certainly a dark porter, moderate to large finely bubbled head, tannish, with nice lacing.   Soft roast, faint lactose, not much hop presense.   First thing is this is somewhat watery, not very big.   Not roasty, not malty, not hoppy, not bitter.   Very average, light, and pedestrian.   Smells a little better, but doesn’t deliver.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but on the thin side.   Lackluster finish.   Clean, but the roast is now minor, hops are nearly non-existant, and just overall a lighter example.   I really thought this was going to be a nice example given its color, but obviously color isn’t everything.

Aroma is roasted with coffee and chocolate. Flavour is slightly sour with licorice and some coffee. A bit straightforward but nice.

CapFlu (4484) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2012
(650ml bottle) Purchased at The Strath in Victoria. Pours a big brown frothy head atop a black body. Vanilla, soya sauce, creamy chocolate. Good bitterness on the tongue and gritty texture, rotten apples, coffee dusting and dried fruit. A good beer; thx for the recommendation Lon. --- reviewed on RateBeer.com
