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.

Sammy (8725) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
A good very drinkable though dry porter. Solid stuff, chocolate, anise, molasses. Black and rich looking. I did the bomber, but that was still a lot of porter. Slight smoke, a very good roastiness. Smooth mouthfeel. Bottle from Steve beerenberger.

Dogbrick (8239) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Sample at Hay Merchant. Pours a dark brownish-black color with a medium foamy tan head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Light to medium body with a roasty coffee and malt character, with some chocolate in the background. The finish is semi-sweet with a mocha aftertaste. Above average overall.

deyholla (6713) - 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.

Bottle:   Thinking this may be infected, huge frothy dark beige head, will not stop foaming.   Luckily the bottle didn’t explode.   Roasty nose, slight lactose, a little ash and campfire.   Nice roasty start, slight apple skin, semi-sweet, a little acrid.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Seems a hefty Porter, almost Stout like.   Somewhat airy, otherwise moderate body and mouthfeel.   Roasted, ashy, and campfire finish.   Lingering apple skin.   I could get over the airiness, if it had more body.   However, if it had more body it probably wouldn’t be as airy as it is.   Average Porter, decent roast, moderate hop, but perhaps over the hill?   I sat on this for only 5 months...   Not bad, but when it comes out of an ice bath and it still foams pretty hard, it tells me a lot.   Thanks Bill!

On draft at Nobi Public .. . Pours a very deep brown black .. . Medium foam .. . Deep roasted malts and black earth .. . Very well balanced porter .. . . Yeah? Rock and roll is fast, you know? If all goes according to plan, I could be in rehab next Thursday. Tuesday week, I’ll be living on an island with a small Indian boy.
