COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In 1975 Don Juan began working as a porter – carrying tremendous loads throughout the Andes Mountains on countless climbing expeditions. His legacy lives on in this delicious and hearty porter. Let the rich flavor of the Don Juan Porter carry away your load of worries on a cloud of toasted malt and earthy hop flavor. Take a sip and let it go.

Theydon_Bois (12567) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle split at the Cotteridge Bash, 24/01/15 thanks to Rilester for bringing me this one back from his travels. Light black with a moderate light beige covering. Nose carries a touch of plastic, light charr, chocolate. Taste comprises toffee, charr, light cocoa rub. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Rather whelming, possibly under.

24th Jan 2015: shared bottle at the Cotteridge Wine meet. Poured a very dark brown with a tanned top of foam. Coffee and chocolate aroma, taste the same, this is all about the malts with very little hop influences. Not bad at all.

mcberko (9200) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
12 oz. bottle, pours a dark brown with a medium tan head. Nose brings out espresso, roasted malt, and some dry cocoa. Flavour is quite robust, with espresso and roasted malt. Medium body, with a rather robust profile. On the higher end of carbonation. Decent stuff, just nothing special.
