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.

Poured dark brown with a smallish, dark tan head. Chocolate and dark fruit aroma. Nice bitter taste with some complex fruits flavors. Smooth, nice balanced flavors and a well-made porter.

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.

Bottle @ Incontri, Aguas Calientes, Peru. Pours black with a beige head. Flavours and aromas of chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Somewhat thin body, and I don’t Knowles white it is with the Peruvians and lively carbonation, but here it is again. Me not like.

Absolutely fabulous aroma of deep rich dried fruit, bubblegum, roasted malts and coffee. Taste is little less powerful, but still some nice coffee and cocoa flavours. A great Peruvian craft beer. Bottle at La Mar Cevicheria, Lima.

Some chocolate. Lots of roast. Some acidity or salty sharpness. Medium body, but lingers nicely. Good porter with some minor flaws.

Bottle (330 ml). From Minderbinder, thanks! Dark brown with a low beige head and little to no lacing. Aroma is of smoke, light roastiness and light fruits. Taste is slightly sweet with light smoke, light roasted malt and light fruits. Light body. Thin and watery. Pretty simple Porter with a very light body. Although, there’s no huge flaws, no off-flavors and that’s a fair Porter aroma/taste-wise. Decent beer from Peru!
