COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Staying true to original porter brewing techniques,we blend fresh brewed beer with an oak-barrel aged ale to create our Stock Porter.Dark and complex,yet eminently drinkable,this beer is a tantalizing combination of coffee and chocolate aromas married to delicate fruit notes,revealing hints of the California zinfandel that once filled our barrels.

"a nice porter id be tempted to buy more of if it were 4 or 6-packs and not 750s only. bottle conditioned, for a smooth velvety texture. a little thin, but smooth and flavorful. chocolate, roasted coffee and malt, and a touch of dark fruit. nice aroma (more roast) and flavor (more chocolate) with an ever so slightly tart/bittersweet finish...this one is nice, if a little overpriced for a porter."

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate off white head on there. Nose is roasty with a bit of sourness to it that seems a bit baltic. Taste is light and roasty and a bit sour as well. Not a lot to this for me.

Mahogany and clear with a creamy head. Fruit nose is nothing like a porter. Not a good combination.

750ml c&c bottle shared by Bob F. after work. Thanks man! Pours a clear light brown/dark amber color with a finger of creamy tan head. Aroma of caramel and roasted malt, some fruity characteristics, and a hint of chocolate. Taste is roasty, toasted malt, hints of chocolate and coffee, and some earthy hop bitterness.

Barreras (1000) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Pours a deep brown color almost black. Aroma is of light coffee, with a mild fruit medley smell. Taste has a chocolate film on the palate, with a slight bitter aftertaste. A cola type look and flavor to this beer that makes it very drinkable and light for a porter. A good complex beer that Id have again.

Pours dark brown, little head, thin mouth. Tastes like a porter, a little sweet. Dark fruit, malt, chocolate, coffee. But not full enough to be a stout.
