COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A multiple medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival, Coal Creek Porter has a solid and loyal following among Big Time’s customers. Impenetrably dark at first glance, Coal Creek shows rich red highlights when held to the light. Its blend of dark roasted malts combines with three other specialty malts and unmalted flaked barley to give Coal Creek a satisfying roasted flavor and smooth texture. It is heavily hopped in the finish with Yakima Centennial. Original gravity is approximately 15 degrees Plato (1.060 Specific Gravity), and alcohol content is 4.5% by weight.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours a deep dirt brown. Very richly toasted malts, barley, tar, a little bit of hop tones too. Mouth is chewy and rich. Decent rich porter.

pivo (2685) - GERMANY - JAN 19, 2009
Smells like starbucks in a glass - coffee a-go-go in the nose and in flavor. Deep dark opaque brown. Deep roasted malts, espresso bitter end. Could be thicker in body. Maybe too roasted but good overall.

Very solid porter. Rich, roasty dark chocolate and mild sweet caramel malt backbone with bits of woodiness and coffee bean hints. Nice light floral hop component. A tad yeasty on the finish. Nice drink overall.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 18, 2008
Roasted ash aroma, some choco, slight smokiness. Opaque with crimson edges yet maintains a light swirl. Black malts are nicely balanced with slight creamy caramel and decent hoppiness. Just a great beer. Thanks André!

3.4
Sammy (12088) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2008
Sessionable porter that’s well malted, with chocolate malts,and so quite drinkable. Hops are secondary but there. Black with moderate white head. Aroma of mild roast. Well balanced and satisfying. Medium mouthfeel.
