COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hoppy twist on the classic English Porter. Our Black Marlin Porter stands out in a town known primarily for its IPA’s. We craft it from a unique blend of roasted and crystallized malts that give it a smooth, chocolaty, caramel profile. Then toss in a healthy dose of American hops to serve up full-bodied flavor worthy of its San Diego roots.

Editor’s Note: Old versions were 5.9% abv

oobawa (1867) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Kinda disappointing for a Bally Point dark beer, thin and a bit watery, with a modest mocha roastiness but otherwise fairly indistinguishable from a billion other mediocre porters. Aim for the Founders instead.
