COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dark brown tan head. Chocolate and roast in the aroma along with some earthy hops. Nice roast with a mild caramel malt sweetness that combines very well with the roast. Lightly hopped; they give off a light earthy bitterness. Solid.

22oz bottle, courtesy of Ughsmash. Thanks, Jason! Pours a dark cola-brown color; huge, textured khaki head with solid retention and lacing. Pleasant amounts of roasted malts, cocoa, and creamy vanilla-tinged malts in the aroma; nothing harsh or burnt here. Medium mouthfeel: roasted / lightly charred malts, bitter chocolate and citrus, with a creamy, biscuity core; very pleasant texture, reasonably hopped, with a solid, layered maltiness. Very drinkable and well-composed. Medium finish: lots of breadiness, bitter chocolate and some lingering mineral hops.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2008
Thanks to beastiefan2k for this one. Dark brown black beer with a thin head. Aroma is quite sweet and plummy. Dark malts, chewy and lightly fruity. Quite coffeeish and roasty, with strong herbal notes and some light molasses sweetness. Earthy and herbal on the back, but with a good balance of sweet and roast. Even a bit of tartness on the back.
