Seven different malts and three different hops go into our Porter for a smooth yet complex flavor. Ost offers light roast malt with a rich smoothness and a dry finish. Ideally served at 50-55F to best reveal its chocolate, caramel, coffee, and roasted malt notes.

This is one roasted black monster of a porter, at least in appearance, boasting a rich, medium-brown head. It looks especially bad in an English Pint glass. It smells of rich, roasted malts, with more roasted coffee grounds than chocolate and a touch of caramel candy. It smells about as expected for the style, but a little deeper and slightly more complex than your average porter. In the mouth itís a little too thin on the palate, though, offering a warm, bitter overall experience rather than a full, enjoyably rich, thick and roasted flavor. It seems like itís too thin for the heavy amount of roast. Had this been a little thicker, the heavy roasted bitterness would be easier to handle. And if this didnít have such a bitter roasted malt flavor it would be a very easy to drink and enjoyable, light porter. It seems to be on the fence between two worlds and is a little awkward because of it. Although it has somewhat of an enjoyably dry, roasted finish, itís the excessive bitterness in the finish that kills the overall experience. Iíd like to blame it on the hops, but I canít at only 46 IBU. I drank this at the 50 degrees as suggested by Rogness, but Iím thinking this might be better colder. The bitterness just isnít that good at warmer temperatures with this low of an ABV.

Black with a decent tan head. Aroma is like being packed away in a cardboard box full of packing peanuts in the attic for a few days...and roasted malts. Taste is of roasted malts, toast, like chewing on a chalkboard, coffee.

Bottle. The look is black in color, ok an head, and dark. The smell is really roasty, malts, styrofoam, dry, and dusty. The taste is dry, dusty, malts, really roasty, and good.

deyholla (10214) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Bottle thanks to secret Santa! Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a strong roasted malt note with a bit of coffee and underlying bitter dark chocolate. Flavor starts with strong roasted malts and dark chocolate but finishes with dark coffee and a good amount of dryness.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle from RS Food Mart. Dark pour with a tan head. Aroma is roasted, chocolate, and lots of coffee. Taste is ash, chocolate, and maybe a little more coffee.

A big rich tan head slowly fades but never completely so. A roasty coffee aroma. Coffee and roasted notes dominate but dry powdeted chocolate can be tasted. Hops enhance nicely with fairly big bitterness and citrus. This is right down the middle for an American porter. Nicely done.

degbert (1705) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours an opaque brown-black with a brown, high, creamy head. Nose is spiced coffee, baking chocolate, and a faint savory edge -- almost like garam masala. Very dark on the tongue, but not at all heavy; thereís richness, but no real oiliness on the palate. Itís a good, basic porter. Sometimes thatís all I want.
