Named after a now extinct surf break just south of Mussel Shoals, Oil Piers ™, our Robust Porter offering, has delicate hopping with a rich malt profile with undertones of dark toast and chocolate. Enjoy Oil Piers ™ by itself to fuel your next surf session like the laborers of the late 19th century or pair with rare prime rib or decadent chocolate desserts.

Sample at the taproom. Brown-black color with a medium creamy beige head that diminishes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, chocolate and coffee. Light-bodied with a roasty malt and coffee character, with mild chocolate and hops in the background. The finish is sweet with a chocolate malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

This is what a porter should taste like. There is an 85 character minimum? So the rest of this is just filler.
