Dark, malty, chocolaty, great hop aroma; all can be said of Six Row’s Strong Porter. Strong because of the increased alcohol content, hop bitterness and aroma. The Strong Porter was brewed with authentic English malt along side Black and Chocolate malt to add complexity. The deepness of the malt is complimented by East Kent Goldings and Fuggle hops to balance the slight sweetness typical of traditional English Porters.

Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate. Body is weakish/watery. Flavor is slightly burnt malt with a little chocolate. It’s not sweet, but I’m not getting any obvious hop bitter either. There’s the bitter of burnt malt. Maybe a very light touch of citrus. The chocolate is not very strong. Mostly burnt malt. But it does taste ok. Puzzling to me.

Dogbrick (11465) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2009
On draught at the brewpub. The beer pours nearly black with a medium tan head that diminishes slowly. Sticky rings of lacing on the glass. Roasty aroma of malt and coffee. Medium, dry body with flavors of chocolate malt, roasted coffee, and hops. The finish is chocolatey with a lingering coffee aftertaste. Solid from start to finish.

Big bottle to a taster, at DLD 2013. Dark brown color. Good thin khaki head. Bits of lace. Toasty malty spicy hop. Light dark fruit. Light herbal hop. Medium body, but a bit on the bigger side... tastes a bit bigger than 5%. Lighter smooth carbonation. Lightly tart, lightly acidic, but not in a way that ruins it. Solid.

phaleslu (9376) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Draft at the brewery. Great-looking pour- dark, opaque brown with an inch-thick dark tan head. Perfect looking porter. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, and earthy hops. Flavor follows suit mostly, with a nice roasty, chocolaty flavor. The hops are also there, adding some bitterness. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a roasty mouthfeel. Very nice porter- it was just called ’Porter’ in the brewery, so I’m not sure why it’s listed as ’Strong Porter’ here.

This looks like a porter is supposed to. Aroma is not big and offers some nice roasted notes. Flavor was bolder than expected. Coffee and some nice hop balance makes for a very nice beer. Very enjoyable.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bomber bottle and served in Pipeworks snifter: Pours a deep brown with a small head and minimal lace. Quite traditional porter nose of roast, nuts, hint of char and chocolate with grassy hops vapours. The taste is a short display of roasted breads, milk chocolate, walnuts, burnt wood, herbal and aromatic hops and a touch of coffee. A tad weak and fading palate. The mouth feel seems a bit watery and lower carbonated. Well it is a session-able and quaff-able porter, nothing less or nothing more.

22 ounce from Wine and Cheese. Light body. Subtle chocolate. Bit of cola in there. I’d like more body in this one and a richer taste.
