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!

CapFlu (4550) - 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

bhensonb (11272) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Bomber from Malt and Vine. 6.0% ABV; 32 IBU. Pours very dark brown with a foamy 3 finger dark beige head. Aroma is a watery sort of chocolate - hints of sour over dark roast malt. Med body. A very decent non-imperialized porter. Imperialization is starting to slant my ratings towards high ABV. Inappropriate in this instance. It’s a damn good plain porter. Chocolate and dark roast malt thru into the finish.

On draft at the brewery. Nice classic roasty porter. Very fresh and drinkable. Finishes well.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2012 Roasted malt flavors permeate this surprisingly thin porter. Weak texture but robust flavors. Coffee caramel taste. Toasted grains weak bitter end.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAY 2, 2012
22 oz bottle. Brown/black with a small, spotty, light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, toast and roasted coffee. Flavor is rich, dark chocolate malt, sweet caramel and some bitter roasted malt. Medium to full body with mild carbonation and a thick, creamy mouth feel. Nice rich, robust Porter.

Pint @ Hop Vine. A decent enough porter but had it right next to a delicious stout (the name escapes me) and so it ended up paling in comparison. Standard roasty notes with a spicy mouthfeel. Pleasantly pleasant.

Bottle pours solid black with a large brown head. Aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Taste is great, toasted grains, light bitter finish, not too sweet. Very nice example of a Porter. Medium thin body, medium high carbonation.

michaelinwa (601) - Bothell, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2012
Pours with a substantial brown head and medium carbonation. Aroma is light, roasted malt, nice. Flavor is primarily light roasted malt and slight hop bitterness. This is a fairly dry porter, that is very balanced. It’s nothing special, but it is a solid beer that is just interesting enough that I would opt for it again.

Dogbrick (8310) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2012
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Brownish-black pour with a medium light tan head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and mild coffee. Light to medium body with a sweet roasty malt character and notes of coffee and chocolate. The finish is sweet with a toasted malt aftertaste. Decent all around.
