Dry and bitter porter with a light body, basic flavors of roasted coffee and chocolate, almost no flavor in the finish. Certainly drinkable, especially when you consider that it’s only 2.50 for a glass.

Draught. One of the few offerings form the folks at Hops. Dark copper pour. Aroma of salt and coffee. Nice taste of caramel malts and slightly bitter aftertaste. Very thin head.

Draught. Pours a decent dark, dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is of burning chocolate, coffee, with some mild soy sauce. This has a very similar flavor profile to piece of solid dark chocolate. It starts out mildly sweet and finishes bittersweet and slightly drying. This is by a very large margin my favorite beer at Hops Grillhouse. My only problem with this is its thinness for the style.

On tap at Hops in Charlotte. Poured a thin brown with no head. Aroma was very roasty and sweet. Flavor surprisingly roasted but thin.

[GABF, Denver Co - 2006] A dark porter with a light brown head. This had some issues and needed some help in malts and brew temps. This is defiantly in need of help. Not the best in my book.

Ugh. Is it the worst porter I’ve had? Quite possibly. A sort of prune and cigarette combination flavor. Looks a little like a brown ale, not a porter, just bad, although it had a head.

Dark reddish-brown colored body with an ivory head. Roasted malts, caramel and hops in the taste. Smooth cool ending, sweet malty aroma.

Roasted chocolate taste, and dark color, typical light porter really. Roasted malt aroma with dark pour and light head. Served in a frosty mug, it was returned for another. Waitress probably thought badly of me.

fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Poured a dark brown with a thick tan head. The smell is sweet malty strong caramel, brown sugar, upfront with a slight chocolate backdrop. The taste is sweet and delicious chocolate, caramel, a slight nuttiness followed by a minimal hop balance but still dominated by the almost overpowering sweetness in the porter. Decent for the style and for Florida def recommended when in the Ft. Myers area.
