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!

Bomber from Total Wine South Richmond. Pours a very dark brown color with a large brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of chocolate, nuts, mild roast. The taste is roasted malts, chocolate, nutty notes, mild hops. Thin-medium bodied. A bit too sweet, but overall solid.

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.

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

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 (1576) - 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.
