Our creamy porter is ideal for the dark beer connoisseur. It has a lightly roasted flavor with hints of chocolate and peat. A smooth finish and superb balance make it enjoyable going down. The secret to this beer is the extra aging. Even those just getting started with darker beers enjoy this one

Fatehunter (1816) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Poured a thin head on a black body. The aroma is roasted and burnt malt, strong on the burnt part. It’s bold and I like it. The taste has a good burnt malt to it with a touch of cream to balance it out. One sided but pretty good. The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation. Enjoyable if you like a bold porter.

TimE (4340) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 31, 2015
Cloudy brown color. Nice cacao and brownies in the nose. Rich mouth full of brownies, with a fair amount of nuttiness. Slightly bitter but the Mouth is a bit thin. Still nice depth.

mjg74 (2910) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 22, 2015
Bottle (5.5%) from Grocery Outlet. Black in color upon pouring. Sweet and roasty nose with a bit of a sour twang to it. Some roast with a bit of a sour cider like flavor. Not really the sort of thing I like in a porter. Has some good roast in the finish. A little more carbonated than I like for the style as well. Very average at best.

jksipa (613) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2015
On tap at Seattle Tap house SEA. Dark reddish brown with a small khaki head that leaves some lace. Nose is muted chocolate with light vanilla, molasses, and some earth. Flavour is a little more pronounced with light sweet chocolate fronting a medium bitterness. Mouth is medium light and creamy but finishing dry.

A relatively standard American Porter. Sweet with chocolate and light roasted malt profile. Well brewed and quite enjoyable.

Terrific porter! Strikes that elusive balance between smooth and strong, coffee and chocolate, malty and hoppy (more malt).

(Bottle) Good porter! Very chocolately and smooth without any astringency or bitterness. It’s a bit thin, and maybe too "simple", but otherwise good!

kidobutai (560) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Full marks on head (thick, long lasting), and color. Lacing was just average. Flavorful aroma, better than the taste. Coffee bean, chocolate, creamy, a bit chalky on the tongue.

SHIG (4045) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Draft at GABBF: Poured a black with tan head. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate. Taste was milk chocolate, coffee bean, and roast malts. Very nice blend of sweet and roast.

shadey (2020) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 11, 2015
22oz bottle. Pours black with a big chunky head that diminishes slowly. Pretty beer. Roasty and a bit bitter. Not as smooth or polished as the Blackstone Oatmeal that preceded it. Certainly drinkable, but a little rough around the edges.

mcberko (10559) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
On tap at Empire Ale House, pours a deep dark brown / black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out nice notes of cocoa, light roast and a touch of coffee. Flavour is quite roasted for a porter, with secondary notes of dry cocoa. Quite robust and full-flavoured despite being rather light on the palate. Very nice stuff.
