Dacrza (1086) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2017
DATE: April 27, 2017... OCCASION: uncapping an Ohio classic--how haven’t I had this already?!--as I expect the Browns to finally find a classic of their own (Myles Garrett?)... GLASSWARE: Stoudt’s autographed pint...pours a nice, dark body that floats a thick brown head, fluffy and effervescent enough... brilliant, thick chocolate, coffee bean, roasted toffee, slight caramel, suppressed hoppiness--slight citrus, yes... boldly announces itself at just 5.8% ABV... instantaneous warmth, with a thick creaminess that acts as a dessert unto itself... peat and chocolate linger at the finish, while teeth buzz with hoppy presence.... medium-bodied, tremendously drinkable... avoids the cola cliche of lesser porters, with the sweet, peaty finish that evokes a scotch ale...caramel, coffee, oak, and soft vanilla--a lot packed into this one... versatile, powerful, rewarding--like Myles Garrett?--and another victory for one of the best things going for Cleveland... what a great everyday porter, as the style was no doubt intended to be...

Clear dark cola colored with ruby highlights and a large beige head with great retention. Great lacing. Classic porter profile. Lightly bitter dark chocolate flavor with just a hint of roasted coffee. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

Sarlacc83 (2468) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2017
Bottle. A: Semi-glossy black with a creme color head and light lacing. M: Cocoa, earth, coffee, ash, charred biscuit and malts, touch of molasses, more of the baker' s chocolate coming up throughout. Bark and some leafiness. Tastes like it was filtered through charcoal. T: Very roasty and bitter with an underlying sweetness that takes the back seat to the campfire and coffee. M: Medium body, creamy carbonation, no alcohol presence. O: Pleasant porter. A big roasty boat of a beer. A standard and for good reason.

Bullit (4845) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2017
Bottle from Consumer Beverages. Dark brown, beige head. Roasty and fruity, no coffee nor chocolate. Slight bitterness. A bit light bodied.

Subliminal64 (261) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2017
Where Purchased: 347ml bottle part of a Great Lakes mixer pack at Meijer Consumed: from a pilsner glass Aroma: Smells malty with a fairly heavy sour note. Not much else there. Appearance : filtered dark brown with lots of head that last to the last drop. Excellent lacing. Taste: very smooth, malty, slightly sweet and a hint of bitterness. Palate : medium to heavy body. Slight bitter aftertaste. Good carbonation. Overall: very well balanced and easy drinking. Other then the smell this is a near perfect example of the style. I was glad to try and will buy again. MB.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 Pours an amber brown with a thick white head. A little more hoppy tasting than a typical porter. Crisp but with a coffee taste. A really nice example of a classic porter.

From Nov 2007 I got this in a trade with autumnaldave. Thanks Dave! This pours from 12oz bottle(best by 2/11/08) a clear dark brown with reddish hues and a small 1 finger head of foam that recedes to a fine broken layer after some time but the good lacing lasts even longer. Very appealing to look at in my glass. The smell is of chocolate, roasted malt, and a touch of hops. The taste is big roasted and caramel malt and chocolate notes with a nice thick mouthfeel and light carbonation. More sips in and there's a mild infusion of hop bitterness that takes the edge off the sweetness a bit and it does a nice job of it. Wonderful bitterish aftertaste going on here. Wow. Tasty as heck but so damn smooth drinking and for me, something I'd consider quite sessionable. I can't get over how nice the chocolate is in this Porter and how well all the flavours work together. I just found my new favourite example of the style, me thinks. This is one that certainly deserves to be sought out! Thanks again, Dave!!
