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!

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.

JDBaker11058 (1334) - Maryland, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Appearance: very dark brown with a thick, creamy medium tan head, and nice concentric rings of lace. Aroma: roasty nose, with nice dark chocolate and slightly burnt barley notes, with a hint of coffee and pine. Taste: as the aroma indicates, with a bit of underlying chocolate and vanilla sweetness. Finish: lingering roast, bittersweet dark chocolate and pine. Notes: Great porter. Smooth, slightly dry, roasty, bittersweet, and well-balanced. Very drinkable.

marcus (6692) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 17, 2014

onceblind (4472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Black pour under a lasting light tan head. The nose smells of biscuity cocoa, light tobacco notes and a hint of coffee. The flavor is a bit light but subtly roasty and a little sweet with some dark earthy chocolaty tones. Pretty nice but just a little too light. And I love how it smells almost exactly like the mustache wax from Men’s Face Stuff.

BREWMUSKCLES (2288) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2014
velvety and smooth with a chocolaty character in a bit of fruit with a light pine like hop character balanced bitter in the finish with like intense dark chocolate, perhaps a bit burnt. nice malt throughout.

Davhgbrew (945) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate. Mouthfeel is creamy and body is full. Roasted malt, assertive hop bitterness lingers throughout to the finish. Mostly dry middle and finish. Overall mostly bitter, but also highly malty full bodied porter. Very flavorful and we’ll done.

DiarmaidBHK (3521) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine McLean. Pours Black with a thin khaki head. leaves a lot of lacing. Not a lot going on on the nose. Has some roastiness and dryness on the tongue which makes it fairly balanced. finishes clean. Not blowing my socks off but quaffable nonetheless.

jrodooo5 (1049) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 12, 2014
Thin porter that lacks depth in every area! Pours dark w/ some reddish hues & has a decent tan head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is a light chocolate roast. The taste is also light. Very faint chocolate upfront & finishes somewhat roasty. Nothing memorable here!

glennmastrange (2311) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle. Moderate cookie and toasted for the malt, light resin for the hops, light to moderate dough and earth for the yeast, with hints of raisin and faint tar, alcohol and spice. Head is small, frothy, light brown with good lacing and good legs, and is mostly diminishing. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily with a lively carbonation. Nice and deep Porter with lots of dark flavors.
