COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is yet another original flagship brew and of the English persuasion. Our brewer does love his dark beers and decided to brew this slightly unheralded style. Porters, related to stouts, come in two basic styles: Brown and Robust. Robust styles tend to be heavier, stronger and even slightly darker. Brown Porters tend to be more drinkable as a session brew. Our Puget Sound Porter is a lovely dark Brown with strong hints of ruby. A wonderful coffee roasted and chocolate nose makes this Porter unique and enhances the medium bodied brew. The flavors of coffee and chocolate follow through each sip of this porter. 8 different malted barleys, including Pale Chocolate and dark German barley make up the grist. Two hop additions balance the beers flavor. Our brewers 2nd favorite child! GABF Gold in 1999 5.4% ABV and 40 IBUs.

Bomber from Central City Liquor Store in Surrey. Almost black in color with a tan head and sweet chocolate on the nose. The malts are way up front and a distinctive chocolate note there as well.. The hops are well hidden. Not complex, but a nice porter all the same.

Sample at Pop Kitchen at the EMP. Dark brown with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Light-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of biscuit malt, chocolate and coffee. The finish is sweet with a mocha aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Tap at Brouwers Cafe, Seattle - 08/11/12. Mid black with a thin tan head that clears to the edge and forms a pond. Nose is big on roast malts, milk chocolate, liqourice, molasses. Tastes of milk choclate, molasses, touch of wood, roast malts, a little smoke. Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a slightly bitter roasty finish. A good porter!

JoeMcPhee (9408) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2012
Deep brown-black pour with a tight tan head. Roasty dry cocoa aroma with a lot of soft chocolate and some herbal hoppiness. Pretty straightforward, although thats not necessarily a bad thing. Easy drinking. Dry finish.

Dark pour with some ruby highlights. Fairly thin body with light chocolate notes, some cocoa, lightly roasted coffee and grass. A layup of a porter.
