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.

MrHangover (4502) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2017
Bottle @ THT. Pours a reddish black beer with a small tanned head on top. Aroma of roast, caramel, sugars and chocolate. Flavor is roasty sweet, lots of bitter chocolate in there and hint of red fruits. Mild in carbonation, nutty and earthy aftertaste. A bit bland to be fair.
