COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Another delicious Porter by Matthew Steinberg! Demo Tape Five has grown up and gotten it’s own name! We refined the process a bit to get this beer right where we want it. All the roasted malts for this beer come from Valley Malt in Hadley, MA.

fiulijn (21471) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2017
Tasting at Erik's, can
Black color. Dirt aroma, cardboard, wet malts. Dry mouthfeel, a bit of roasted malts, little chocolate, swampy water, light sourness.
Not even a real Porter. Not convincing.

mcberko (19192) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2017
16 oz. can, pours a deep dark brown / near-black with a small beige head. Aroma is quite dry, with toasted malt and some oats. Flavour is along the same lines, with toasted malt, dry oats and a hint of a metallic character. Dry and nicely structured. Solid.

Oakes (19027) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2017
Medium brown. Not much head. Has a mellow cocoa aroma, with a light chocolate note. Light body, with a chocolate note. OK, a relatively thin porter...has a light nuttiness. OK.

16oz can pours a dark brown color with a bit of head. Roasted malt. Smooth hop balance.

3.7
malrubius (3047) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 22, 2017
Can from CBC Belmont. Dark brown with tan head and some lace. Roasted earthy chocolate coffee aroma. Dark chocolate medium roasted coffee and light fruit in overall medium-heavy sweetness. Finishes earthy and sweet with mild roasted woody and fruity hops. Medium body (full for abv) and slightly slick. Rich for abv. Nice and sessionable but a little on the sweet side.
