P-51 is a robust and clean-finishing porter. Rich malty flavors highlight hints of chocolate, coffee, nuts and smoke. At 8% ABV, this dark beer will warm even the coldest South Sound nights.

16 oz can. Pours a very dark brown with a minimal tan head with no lacing. Smells sour with light roasted and coffee notes. Tastes the same as it smells. Mouthfeel is pretty boring for a imperial porter. This was pretty dissapointing. I remember liking wingman at the beer festivals but with a little tweaking to the recipe and the beer will be better.

"Been sittin on this pint can for a while. Robust and smooth feel. Nutty, smoky, chocolate malt balls, light coffee. Can still smell too much alchohol for an 8% beer though. a little harsh at first but mellows. Solid, although nowhere near the best in style..."

Can. Roasty, bit sweet, dark and alright. Not so excited as everyone else about this, but nice enough.

Very good ballsy, big chocolate and vanilla fronted. Rich without being cloying. Perhaps a little one trick, but still a great brew.

Black pour under a thin sticky light khaki head. The aroma is initially roasty and smokey, but with a little bit of mocha java underneath. Big robust flavor and mouthfeel with a dark roast character, some sweet cocoa tones, bitterness from a smokey flavor, and a dark and bitter dry nutty finish. A bit harsh on the finish but otherwise tasty.

wow, totally surprised to look up this beer and to find it rated so poorly. one guy rated it a 1.3 but then noted that it "poured flat and had no head." uh, thatís probably a dead beer, every brewery has one from time to time. you should review one thatís not clearly flat. anyway, I normally donít drink dark beers like this but this one was really good.

Love this beer! A nice citrusy aroma, a good level of bitterness, and an excellent smokiness makes this one of the best porters Iíve had.

Aromas of bread and chocolate, pours a thick deep black with a mocha colored foam, no head with decent lacing. Coffee, chocolate, burnt sugar, malty smooth earthy bitterness. This is a really very tasty imperial porter.

Superb Imperial porter -- amazed it rates so low on ratebeer! Chocolate aroma in a spirited, bordering on gushy, pour. Solid roastiness flavor, with coffee and chocolate notes in that order. Just Solid, with a capital S. would call this one a stout in fact. Recommended -- buy it and drink it if you have the opportunity!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Black color with fleeting tan sheen. Earthy kelp, sour dough, chocolate, vinous aromas. Light frothy mouthfeel. Sour vinous chocolate, medium roast malt, sour fruit infected flavors

Super foamy with rocky head on a Baltic black body. Very clean, almost antiseptic, quality to the aroma. Deep clean roast, and some salty sea breeze. Body is oil thick and some gritty deep roast, with touches of charcoal, and unsweetened chocolate. Lacks the complex caramel and Special B notes of a well-aged Baltic Porter. Not bad, but more of a Imperial/Foreign Import Stout.
