COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kulshan Porter is brewed in the Brown Porter style. Deep mahogany in color, the beer is topped with a rich mocha-colored head. The roasted barley aroma is accented with notes of coffee and chocolate. The flavor is smooth and silky with roasty-toasty grains blended with coffee, chocolate and a touch of toffee. The aftertaste is smooth and clean. Kulshan Porter is the perfect beer to pair with grilled meats, hearty stews and shellfish. Or try it with your favorite Bleu, Stilton or washed-rind cheese. For dessert, Kulshan Porter is just right with any kind of chocolate cake or a tart apple pie topped with a slice of cheddar and some ice cream.

Draft in Bellingham. Soft cream, dark cola brown. Battery acidic malt nose. Tart brown malt body, quite sweet with some odd unpleasant roast. Creamy, wet body. Average weight. Light chocolate on finish. Metallic sensation overall.

kathouse (1842) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - JAN 25, 2015
Deeper red than brown with a light tan head. Aroma is chocolate and toasted malts. Definitely more brown ale than porter with some roasted notes, but lots of toasted malt and residual sweetness. Finish is somewhat dry. Not what I expect from a porter.

maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Draught at WA Brewers Festival, 2014. Pours a dark brown color, though lighter than I expected. Nose is roasty and slightly bitter, but seems like a stock and unremarkable porter recipe at first. Taste is slightly bitter and roasty, and entirely forgettable.

Dark brown color, almost black, with creamy beige head. Roasted malt aroma. The flavor is also a bit chocolatey, and the muthfeel is smooth.
Nice Porter.
