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.

fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 23, 2014
An easy-drinking porter with some American as well as British characteristics. Very smooth, medium bodied. Creamy head. A bit hoppy and fairly sweet. Milk chocolate, mocha, hazelnut. Pretty light on the roasted malts.

Backlog, bottle. Pours a brown color with a one to two finger creamy top. Aroma and flavor of nuts, roasted malt, chocolate powder, hops, and sweet malt. Roast at first then sweet at the end. Not a fan of this porter.

bpreo (2943) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2017
Great Porter in most ways. It could use an alcohol content at 7% or more, if you ask me.

Schöner fluffiger Cremeschaum. In der Nase Röstmalz, etwas Kaffee. Im Trunk komplex, erst süffig süß, mittig bitter, leicht rauchig. Hinten schokoladig, zartbitter, Kaffee, Holzfass. Dabei mit hoher Drinkability. Schön, dass es eine große Flasche ist ;-)

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.
