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.

Brewed in the USA !!! (KSBF) Pours a sweet dark brown color with a med tan head. The aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. The taste is much of the same with the addition of dark coffee. the finish is dry and pretty good.

Black in color too dark to see through with a beige colored head. Smell is roasty, chocolate, malty, coffee, very roasty. Taste is the same dark roasted character as the smell.

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2008
On tap at KSBF ’08. Dark brown, nearly black with a tan head. Light smell of dark chocolate. Bitter chocolate dominates the flavor, a little dusty. Not bad.

3.2
unclemike (3197) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Poured a dark brown with a small tan head. Nose was pretty choco-roasty, a little fruity. Taste is classic roasted malt with appropriate hop bitterness as backup. Initially I didn’t notice, but this one has quite a carbonation issue---a bit too much. The hops never quite make a statement in this...a bit too sweet in the end. .

bp (924) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Draft: pours a dark black with a tan head, aroma of roasted malt, taste is malty and bitter, medium body. Not bad.

jimhilt (2636) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Pours a three finger beige head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Black as midnight, no highlights. Light-medium carbonation and heavy bodied. Coffee nose. Flavor is sweet roasted coffee/chocolate with almost burnt coffee finish, nice porter. $5.25 for a 22oz bottle from Yankee Spirits South Attleboro, Ma.
