COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Theydon_Bois (8276) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle at RBESG ’14, day 4 not so grand tasting at Craft Clerko, 10/08/14 cheers Kenny. Murky dark mahogany brown with a moderatley appointed tan covering. Nose is light roast, cocoa powder, earthy vibes. Taste comprises dark toffee fudge, roasted malt, chocolate. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light dryness in a roasted finale. Ok simple porter.

RBESG pt 19. Craft Clerkenwell. Grandish Tasting. Opaque dark brown beer, good size pale tan head. Light dry palate. Airy dark malts, little roast bitterness. Very light touch of lactose. Dry bitter finish. Very straight laced and a little on the dull side, but inoffensive.

Scopey (6711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle thanks to Kenny at RBESG 2914. It pours near black with small beige head. The nose is toasty, tortilla, nachos, corn bread and roasted malt. The taste is bitter, roasty, some acidity, coffee, coffee, woody, earth, nachos and earth with a very dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Odd nacho action.

Tap @ brewery on nitro. Black pour with a frothy tan head. Light roast, nuts , and noticeable sweet malt in the aroma. Taste is light roast, chocolate, and sweet malt with bitterness. Watery mouthfeel. Okay.

RedSox2004 (1232) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Cask at The Daily Pint. Medium brown with a two-finger beige head and nice lace. Aromas of cocoa powder, roasted malt, coffee grinds and a hint of cocnut (added to the cask). Bittersweet chocolate flavor up front with roasted malt, grassy hop bitterness and more of the coconut. Medium body, minimal carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, and a lingering cocoa in the finish.

douglas88 (5925) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 29, 2012
On tap at GABF 2012. Pours a ruddy black color with a medium white head. A sweet nose of chocolate with some nutty elements. A very light and easy porter: chocolate, caramel, light toast. Good.

illidurit (2132) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 28, 2012
On tap at Blue Palms during RBSG 2012. Big ashy coffee aroma, pretty strong and roasty. Flavor is a letdown with watery old coffee, cheap dark chocolate, low carbonation and thin body.
