Our robust Porter shows bittersweet flavors of coffee and dark chocolate. It has very complex malt character enhanced by yeast fruitiness.

"Bittersweet and pretty robust in flavor and feel. Doesn’t really follow the porter style to a tee, but it don’t matter. Rich chocolate, coffee (slight) and decent balance. Nice brew. Thanks Thomas."

Cask gravity at the 2014 GBBF. With ginger and orange peel. Nose is big candied ginger preserve, spicy and fresh bit not much else. Opaque dark brown coloured pour wiry a halo of cream head head. Flavour is big ginger, spicy orange tang and dark choc, ginger dominates the flavour. Palate is medium full with highish carbonation. Too much ginger.

Ferris (4339) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2014
Cask - Ginger - Ginger and a bit of spice. Jet black with no head. Ginger and roasted malts, light chocolate with a bit of ginger on the finish. Although I find the ginger harsh on the nose, it works ok in the flavor.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4943) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small foamy dark tan head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dark fruits, toasty malts and hints of wood and marshmallow. The flavor was dryish, roasty and bitter with notes of chocolate, vanilla, marshmallow, fruity hops and a hint of port wine. Medium length finish. Medium body. Solid.
