COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

deyholla (6613) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, 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 (2616) - 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.

Strykzone (4913) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2013
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.

mar (4826) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Black pour with a khaki head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, cocoa powder, and dry. Very nice on the palate, coffee, grainy chocolate, smooth finish.

degbert (1105) - 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; there’s richness, but no real oiliness on the palate. It’s a good, basic porter. Sometimes that’s all I want.

Mora2000 (5666) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Dark brown with a large tan head. The aroma is full of milk chocolate with some roasted malt thrown in. I also get a slight him of coffee in the aroma. The flavor is similar. There is a bitter roasted malt and chocolate quality that really comes through strongly. Medium mouthfeel and medium to high (prickly) carbonation. A very nice porter. My only minor complaint is that I wish there was a little less carbonation.

Beerenberger (1425) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Aroma of roasted malt, meat, coffee, and chocolate. Pours a deep black with a none lasting tan head and minor lacing. The taste is roasty, meaty, slightly bitter coffee, a hint of sweetness and a nice bitterness in the finish. Medium- full body with medium carbonation. Overall, a very robust and enjoyable porter.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma has a hint of smoke with a strong dark roasted grain presence. Flavor is much the same with a hint of bitter sweet chocolate and signs if earthy hop in the finish. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Well made brew!
