Michelob Porter is brewed using the finest classic aroma hop varieties grown in the Pacific Northwest United States and two-row, caramel and chocolate barley malts, giving it an aroma of coffee and a hint of chocolate. It is dark brown in color and, when held to light, ruby-red highlights can be seen. The porter complements a variety of cheeses, shellfish dishes as well as chocolate desserts, and is best enjoyed when served in a traditional pub style glass.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Part of a 20 pack of Holiday brews that I picked up in Wal Mart that will come in handy for guests that need a beer! Dark mahagony pour with an off-white head that resembles the bubbles that are produced when making a mudhole with a hose - kinda thin. Decent nose - roasted nuts, some bakers chocolate. Flavor has a decent earthy chalkiness to it with some chocolate after tones and a bit of an oily finish. Mouthfeel - could be thicker - but not a distractor. Overall, a decent porter.

Soft, chalk-nutty cocoa roast aroma. Extremely dark, fair label. Born on Aug 18, 2006. Tangy roast, coffee acidity. Lots of carbonation. Dry, with a building roast bitterness. Body is thinnish and the finish becomes lightly sweet with an aspirin bitterness. I wish that I could get this everywhere that they offer Amber Bock as the best beer on tap.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2008 Looks nice enough, nice color and full creamy head. Drinks Ok-coffee, chocolate and some spruce hops. The bodys thin and watery. Yeah, yeah I know its Anheuser-Busch, but its not bad. Not something Id seek out, there are far better porters out there, but its not a drain pour either.

This would be much better if it wasnt so watery. Nice pour, a deep mahogany with some reddish highlights and a creamy tan head. The aroma is faint, some lightly roasted malts and brown sugar sweetness. Also water. The flavor is more burnt than roasted, but thats not too overbearing because its so thinned out. A little more sugar, a touch of chocolate. Drinkable, but easily forgettable.

Nice brown color,small off white head that had a short hang time then faded quickly leaving nothing behind.The aroma was lightly malty with some mild roastiness and a mild chocolate thing going on.The flavor was not that great but not to bad eather for an AB brew.Light malty side with a bit of a roastiness coming through and a slight hint of chocolate,Some mild hops showing in the end and a decent but fleeting bitterness.Again nothing special but its worth a try.

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2006
Pours very dark brown with a little fizzy tan head. Aroma has light notes of coffee, and toffee, but its very light much. Flavor is pretty much like a nice lager with a little extra flavor. Theres some nice hints of coffee, and little roasted malt, but like the aroma, its very light. Palate is light and thin, a little too fizzy, but theres a nice nice light note of bitterness on the finish. Overalll, its a michelob, never real good, but never real bad.

Pour is a almost black with a small tan head. Aroma is pretty nice mix of chocolate and roasted nuts. Flavor is a bit weaker then the aroma but still pretty nice with some chocolate and coffee showing up. Finish is sweet but bitter. It would be easy to dump on this brew b/c of who made it but i would say this is a average to slightly above average porter.

Bottle from the 2006 sampler pack. Pours a dark brown with a little head. Aroma is a little bit of chocolate and walnuts? Taste is a little weak on the porter side, but for A-B is beer is a MAJOR accomplishment. Me like it.
