All of us here at Epic are happy to introduce the newest exponential libationBlue Law Porter. This is a medium-bodied porter to which we added blackberry puree at the end of primary fermentation and finished it with spruce tip extract harvested from Blue Spruce trees found on the grounds of Utahs State Capitol building. It has a roasting profile with a fruity tartness and an aftertaste of resinous spruce.

Bod mahogany with a nice tan head. The blueberry addition adds subtle complexity but nothing remarkable. Some dark fruit. Tartness. Minimal sweetness.

onceblind (8933) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 19, 2013
At Big Beers, Belgians, & Barleywines Fest 2013. Clear dark brownish amber with a nose like burnt toast, funky cheese (in a good way), and roasted dark malt. Flavor is smooth and dark with a certain funkiness like fish or cheese (I didnt know what ingredients were in this beer when I wrote these notes...reading the description this makes more sense now...), burnt toffee, and earthy toast. Not really diggin it.

Pours a brown to cola red color. Minimal head. Aroma is your typical porter. The taste hits first as spruce followed by the porter medium roast notes with the blackberry appearing in the background as a minor note. Very good to me has a nice minor fizz on the palate too.

Butters (4058) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pours a dark clear brown with ring of offwhite head. Nose is weird sweetness and a tootsie roll character. Flavor is also unusual, but kinda enjoyable. The blackberry juice is evident, as well as the sprucy finish, but I cant say that I really care for it all that much. Roasty with cocoa. Its definitely different from your everyday porter. kudos for trying something new though.

Welcome beer, I acquired from a recent US trip. Sour at the beginning, this porter yields tasty tart fruit. Black with a big head. Some spruce taste. Decent drinkability.

TheBeerGod (6171) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle. Release #2 at 7% ABV. Opaque dark brown with a short, foamy tan head. Aroma is dark fruit, soft chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is tart berries, soft roasted malt, and faint chocolate. Body is light and has a strong, spritzy carbonation. Lingering berry tartness throughout. Ends with more soft chocolate, tart berries, and roasted malt. Too much blackberry and not much else. Disappointing...

Dogbrick (12633) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Sample at World Of Beer. Dark brown pour with a minimal beige head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Roast malt and coffee in the nose. Light to medium body with a roasty character and flavors of chocolate malt and subtle berry. The finish is mildly bitter with a coffee aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Smells like a porter with light chocolate aromas. Faint blackberry and chocolate flavors. Overall a tasty porter.
