COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Porter dates from the 1720s and is the predecessor to Stout. It was called the workmans beer as it was strong, but nutritious. Ours is a robust porter with abundant body and a deep garnet, almost ebony color. It is slightly sweet with chocolate & coffee aromas. Hop and roasted grain flavors are present, balanced with imported English hops.

The cocoa nibs almost come through as coffee. Lin Gering bitterness of unclear origin. Other than that, not bad.

GTAEgeek (2009) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2015
On tap at the Prado 5 Seasons. Pours black, with a small, creamy, tan head. Nose is roasted coffee, syrup, bitter chocolate, and a little licorice. Sweet, with a significant bitterness, and a long, acrid, bitter aftertaste. Medium to heavy body, chalky, and thick. Overall, this is a weak, unpleasant porter. Could be much better.

jbruner (4211) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 1, 2013
5.5% on tap at the brewpub. Pours a translucent brownish black with lady off-white head that sticks lightly. Aroma of light soy and dark cocoa. Taste follows, but bigger than the nose. Smooth and easy, nicely done.

A fine English porter, served a bit too cold in a standard pint glass at the Prado location. Lingering dark malt flavor with a light touch of smoke and spicy English hops.

deyholla (10442) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear brown with a tan head that starts and remains at the edges. Aroma has notes of roasted malts with a hint of chocolate, but a bit one note. Flavor has roasted malts up front that mellow to allow a dark bread note to come out but a bit thin.

Shag (2846) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - NOV 20, 2010
A nice black appearance with a moderate white head. The aroma is smokey with chocolate and coffee. The flavor is rather bitter with some coffee and a bit of smoked malts. A nice one!

Draft at 5 Seasons Westside 08/07/2010. I hope I am rating the correct beer as I was told at the brewpub this is an "Aged Porter" and my ticket called it "Imperial Porter". Served in a Tulip. Poured a burnt brown (almost black) with a brown head. Aroma: faint smoke, chocolate & stale espresso (in a good way), mild roasted grain, faint alcohol, wood, earth... maybe some notes of plum. The taste carries this out but with a mellowed sourness and notes of molasses. Medium to full body. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Left a sticky film in my glass when finished. Nice complexity for a Porter and very well balanced. Overall: Excellent - comes across like an Aged Imperial Porter.

Draft pint at the brewpub. Decent enough aroma, but this delivers a powerhouse milky chocolate delight. Wow. (#3855, 2/23/2010)

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 22, 2010
On tap at brewpub. Poured a dark brown with a creamy tan head. It took a while for this to come from the tap, really creamy. Aroma is mix of roasted malt, light chocolate, earthy sweet malt. Taste is similarly roastey, with chocolate and some sweetness. Body is creamy and full. Finish is smooth and sweet.
