COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our award winning dark ale which is an original London style, lighter in body than a stout but with the same alcohol content. Brewed with pale, crystal, chocolate and black malts to create a creamy, smooth, roasted, slightly chocolate tasting ale with a bit of hoppiness in the finish. The name comes from the fact that after brewing, the mash is given to a local farmer and there can't be anything better than spent grain from brewing for fattening up a pig.

tatinek (60) - South Dakota, USA - JAN 7, 2011
6 pack bottles - Convenience store in Montana. Dark brown, Aroma of caramel and nicely balanced malt. I taste caramel, chocolate, malt, coffee. Moderately sweet. The body is a bit thin for a porter. Overall a descent porter that I would buy again.

Bottle thanks to Toby. Pours a dark brown color with a medium light beige head. A nice toasted malt and caramel nose, some chocolates. The flavor is similar; a smooth roast, chocolate, some milk, light hops in the finish as the description says. Some nutty and metallic flavors. Interesting. Nice.

Skyview (6021) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Brennans Country Farm Market in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Pours an opaque dark brown colored porter with an average sized beige head that slowly dissipates to a creamy top. Aroma of toasted dark malt, chocolate, mocha and a hint of caramel. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of toasted dark malt, some chocolate malt, floral hops and hint of roasted coffee. Finish has a short lived mild bitterness then a toasted dark malt aftertaste. A solid porter throughout.

jarow (237) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Nose is roasty, some chocolate and coffee. Medium body, a bit thinner than I’d expected. Some roasty malts, light chocolate and caramel. Finish is bitter chocolate. Not terribly exciting.

omhper (25095) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2010
Bottled. Dark brown, small head. Fruity with lots of cocoa. Mid sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel and light body. Faint salty finish with some bitterness. A drinkable albeit plain porter.

3.6
IndianaRed (4610) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 26, 2010
Bottle at Brewforia. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head. Sweet light roast map aroma and flavor. Lacking the sour tart stig of many porters. On the lighter side and pleasent. Lingering small bitterness at the end. Easy drinkable porter.

dwyerpg (6180) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 30, 2010
A rich roasty aroma, some coffee. This is pretty good. A hint of coffee, some richness but not thick really. Best beer I’ve had with ass in the title for sure.
