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.

hershiser2 (3250) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2016
Bomber from Whole Foods. Pours black with a nice soft tan head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of coffee beans, ash, metal. Taste is coffee, light bitter chocolate, coffee grounds. Just fine, but does not stand out.

2.3
Quick3Beers (1234) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Pours a near black from a bottle. Burnt molasses odor with coffee beans, flavor somewhat similar with an oddly thick oily mouthfeel. Meh.

valpoaj (744) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Black/brown pour - thin tan head. Aroma is heavily roasted malt, hint of charred nuts, coffee, chocolate, and a slight grassy hop note. Flavor is a lot more of the heavily roasted malt, dose of dark roast coffee, caramel, and then has a nice hop bitterness to offset things. Palate appropriate for the style. Nice beer overall!

Dark thick brown pour with good sized brown head. Nose of toasted malt and coffee. Flavor is roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Nice complex finish.

3.8
IslandHaole (1268) - Misawa, JAPAN - FEB 12, 2016
Motor oil brown, opaque, huge tan head with a scent of cocoa, burnt toast and day old milk. A tasty blend of roasted malts, mineral salt, cocoa, has a bitter hop follow mixed with the mineral tanginess of licking a penny. I know that doesn’t sound appetizing but it works.

4.3

Damn this is a nice porter. Chocolate, coffee, dark malts aroma. High carbonated, medium bodied. Complex coffee, coffee sourness, chocolate, bitter, balanced. Excellent porter.
