COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Based on a 200-year-old recipe for Porter, a brew whose popularity changed English beer-making methods in the mid-1750s. A dark full-flavoured beer but smoother and less bitter than stout. Made with softened water, Propeller London Porter is a blend of pale, roasted and chocolate malts, hopped with English and North American varieties.

Noir avec une mousse moyenne marron. L’arôme du chocolat et malt torréfié. Le goût est pareille et équilibré avec un peu d’amertume.

Deep brown with a big pill owing head. Smoky malt, chocolate and molasses in the nose. Lots of smooth chocolate, creamy smoky roasty malt. Very nice classic porter

650 ml bottle. Pours black with full whitish head. Aromas of burnt malts, hay, and light coffee. Flavors of heavily roasted malts, bitter unsweetened chocolate, and ash. Very dry. Just the way I expect a Porter is supposed to be - no confusion with a stout on this one.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Dark brown with a gigantic, rocky tan head. The aroma has a lot of chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt with some nice chocolate. Super high carbonation and medium mouthfeel.

Large bottle from Liquor Barn in Burnaby Heights. A very dark beer with a hint of ruby translucence near the bottom of stemmed glass. Not as black as coal, but getting there. A generous tan head and sweet malts on the nose.

Wow, they really got the flavors balanced right on this one! First impression is of chocolate and roasted malts with a hint of coffee. Sweet, but not too sweet. Just right. Very smooth, mellow and satisfying!

Oakes, if you read this, I thoroughly enjoyed your reminiscences of Halifax, though I’ve never been there. Cheers!

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 From a 341 ml bottle into a pint glass (alas the by-and-large disappearance of the bomber....) Roasty aroma with a definitely noticeable coffee tinge. Pours a deep brown with a lasting light tan peripheral head. Rich and malty flavour with chocolate and coffee overtones. Delightful. One of my favourites.

AlainG (1127) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2012
Bière brune foncée qui apparaît pratiquement noire, ayant une mousse pas des plus dense mais persistante. Des arômes de grain grillés, de mélasse et de chocolat atteignent le nez. C’est dans la même famille pour les saveurs, avec des touches fruitées. Elle est bien ronde en bouche, nous imprégnant d’une amertume agréable. (305-200712)

A wonderfully soft porter. I love the very mildly burnt chocolate notes you get in the aroma, with even a bit of plain yoghurt scent. Higher carbonation than Fuller’s. Leaves spiderwebs though! No diacetyl. Mouthfeel is slippery. This deserves more ratings than its average of one a month.

Beautiful roasted coffee and choclate notes. Dark brown in the glass with a nice foam head. Excellent mouthfeel and very smooth. Toasty notes with chocolate and coffee on the palate. This is a delicious porter. Well done. Tasted from a 650ml bottle.
