A hoppy twist on the classic English Porter. Our Black Marlin Porter stands out in a town known primarily for its IPAs. 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.

mmmbeer (1399) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2008
22 oz. bottle in trade from Snojerk321-thanks! Served in pint glass- poured non transparent when held to light black, low carbonation with tiny bubbles, tan ring around the glass for a head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, darkened caramel, and roasted malt. Hits the mouth with a wide body, malt has a smoke quality to it which makes it just that much more enjoyable, some cream in the middle, finish is bitter and slowly fades away. Nice, very nice.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Pours black with a good tan head. Aroma is pretty mild but I smell some roasted malt and a light sweetness. Flavor is a nice combination of roasted malt with some dark chocolate. I don’t detect much in terms of hops. The mouthfeel is outstanding. It’s just creamy and velvety and rolls around your tongue. Aftertaste is roasty and even a bit smokey. Very good.

Pours a pitch black color with a thin light brown head. Pleasant aroma of smoked, slightly roasted malt and chocolate. Good flavor of smokey, roasty malt with chocolate and dryness. The body is light with a creamy texture and gentle carbonation. This is a very well made porter.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUL 5, 2008
22oz. bottle. Sweet and roasty malt aroma, full of chocolate and toffee with notes of marshmallow, cola and some faint hop perfume. Mostly opaque black-brown color with a light tan head that subsides considerably. Dark chocolate malt flavor, again roasty and sweet, gently smoky and nutty with hints of sugary, creamy coffee, spicy, citric hop, and a very mild degree of bitterness. Smooth and thin on the palate with a low amount of effervescence, body is light-medium. Pretty well dominated by chocolate sweetness, fairly light and pleasant otherwise.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Pours a dark brown black body with little tan head. Aroma/flavor is sweet malty, grainy, some lightly bitter coffee. Very drinkable but the body feels a bit oily and thin. Not bad.

Mrthirstyneck (341) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2008
This is a dam good porter. Nothing sweet really which is a good thing. nice tan head that laces just a bit. Color is deep. almost black. Aroma is a touch sweet, but grainy and toasted as well. Flavor is really good. Texture is nice and creamy too. It has a really smooth, and almost hard to taste ashy, toasted taste that really lingers on the palate. And I like that.
