COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No other beer shows off what malts can do in a beer better than porter. Certified Organic Porter uses a complex blend of five malts that compliment and highlight one another in a harmonious mixture. Only one addition of imported Pacific Gem hops is used to provide a balancing bitterness without introducing any other hop character. While decidedly in the robust porter category, Certified Organic Porter has none of the harsh character people often associate with dark ales. Instead, what one finds is a rich, smooth beer with suggestions of chocolate and just a hint of coffee. So smooth and malty, this porter will convert even the non-dark beer drinker.

Paid $1.49 for a 12-oz single. Very dark brown, with an inch-and-a-half tan head. Aroma is sweetly malty. Flavor is outstanding... deep roasted chocolates & nuts, slightly sweet, slightly bitter... very refreshing. Well above average!!

12oz Bottle: Pours a dark brown with a tan head. It didnt have a lot of aroma may be cause it was so cold. But had a great flavor, I can think of 4 words to describe it: smokey, chocolate, coffee, and malty. A much better beer than I anticipated.

Foxbush (1922) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2004
Poured with a full 1 inch head with some lacing. This Porter is true to style. The color is dark brown not black. The taste is laced with nuttiness. I dont know what impact organic ingredients play. This is a good Porter but not outstanding.

TheBeerGod (6122) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Dark brown with a definite ruby hue to it. Small dense foamy brown head. Nose is coffee and laden with roasted malts. Theres a nice caramel sweetness to it as well. The flavors are easily summed up with roasted malt, light coffee and anise, with burnt or smoky wood and caramel. Body is light body and a bit bitter and oily. Finishes smokier and more bitter than the taste. More coffee too. Good beer!

I really enjoyed this porter. I found it to be full, flavorful and true to style. A slightly lighter version than many of those one finds these days and I think that is what I enjoyed so much. Why brew a porter to stout strength? Malty, roasted notes. Touch smoky. Mildy, mildly sweet. Nicely hopped and easily drinkable. This could become a staple around here.

New in Town!
Pours a dark amber brown body with a small off white head. The aroma has hints of French vanilla coffee, and chocolate. The flavor also has some bitter and toasted chocolate malt notes along with some raisin and fig. The palate is fairly luscious this is a nicely brewed porter!

IndianaRed (4091) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Bottle Poursdark reddish brown. Not black like some of the style. Virturally no head but fine lacing. Dark roasted nut and coffee aromas. Yes, coffee flavor is most prominant. Taste is a bit thin but quite good. Slightly sweet. Smokey and coffee. Feel is agan, somewhat thin and plain. Carbonation is low, almost flat. A nice soft finish. Not my favorite porter but pretty good.

A very nice Porter with the usual and standard flavors. Nice malt tones with not a lot of hop as so many west coast brews feature.

Man can somebody say chocolate milk? That is what the nose and palate smell and taste like, nice dark brown to black body with a tan frothy head that last. Medium carbonation and not too chewy.
