This is the best Porter I have ever tasted. It doesn't hurt that Grant's Brewpub is just across the railroad tracks from my office. I can get it fresh!!

Bottled. I wasn't expecting a good porter, because I think most of Grant's beers are just average. However this porter was a pleasant surprise. There was a massive amount of chocolate/coffee in the nose and taste. Nice carbonation with a hoppy finish. There was also a nice tan head that left ample lacing all the way down the glass. This has instantly become one of my favorite porters! I only wish the alcohol content was a little (okay a lot) higher.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2003 Very smooth beer with dramatic chocolate overtones, and a slightly less dramatic coffee flavor. Just to say it simple, it isn't bitter in the least bit. This is the best beer I have encountered thus far. Thank you goes out to the unknown man at JAX in Cumming, GA for his reccomendation.

I had this beer during the summer of 2001 while on vacation in St. George, Florida. I was drinking a lot of Rolling Rock and Guinness at the time. When I had this, it was the most perfect drink I had ever consumed - rich body with the definite aroma of chocolate and coffee. Where, oh where did my Perfect Porter go?

I don't know if I'd call it "perfect", but it's pretty damn close. Nice dark color and good flavor. The only better porter that I've had so far would be Sierra Nevada's.

Man do I like this. Reminds me of a more drinkable Nimbus Oatmeal Stout or a smoother Rogue Mocha Porter. Seriously very good. Beautiful almost-black color. Hints of coffee, smoky chocolate. Light but still creamy and very smooth-bodied. Sweet without being cloying and not without backbone. This oneís a new regular in my rotation to be sure.

This is the perfect porter! Very dark with nice head. Great roasted malt aroma. Great hints of chocolate. Silky awesome texture. Almost a perfect beer, in my opinion.
