COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A multiple medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival, Coal Creek Porter has a solid and loyal following among Big Times 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.

fiulijn (19872) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
Draught at the brewpub, 5.4% ABV
Black color, with creamy head. Not very Porter, but it has a nice aroma of roasted malts. There is some flavor of very dark chocolate, but covered by the high roastiness character; in the final, with the roasted malts and ashes, there is still some underlying chocolate.
More Stout than Porter, but good.

On tap at Big Time, Seattle. Very deep ruby colour, tan head. Coffee porter, nice malts up front, then lots of sherberty hop on end. Nice charcoal aroma and in mouth but not sure the hoppy finish works.

mcberko (16021) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
On tap at Big Time, pours a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma brings out notes of charcoal in typical coal porter fashion. Flavour is well-balanced, with dry cocoa powder and light roast. Decent porter, just nothing special.
