COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One taste of this deep chocolate brown porter will explain why it won a silver medal at the 1998 Great American Beer Festival in Denver and continues to win the hearts of dark ale lovers everywhere. With a slightly hoppy aroma and a smooth, toasty malt character, Portage pairs well with food or stands alone as an exemplary sample of the robust porter style

On tap at the brewpub July 10. I’ve recently gotten back into drinking porters and stouts, so this one was a treat. Poured jet black. Super rich toasty malt and coffee taste. Nice bitter on the back. Very indicative of the style, reminded me of Guinness in a way.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2010 Draft at the brewpub, 7/6/05: Dark brown with a decent smoke aroma, but the flavor is sweet malt with little constructive character. So-so. <<Tried again on cask, supposedly aged in Jeremiah Weed barrels? A watery offering, this did at least have a woody alcohol kick -- not enough to change my impression of this place. >>

Very dark, almost black. Big roasty aroma, coffee and chocolate. Slightly rich on the tongue, but not really sweet. Slightly thin body. Makes for a great dessert beer.

Had on tap at the brewpub in downtown Anchorage. Dark brown pour. mocha colored head with good lacing. Bittersweet chocolate and coffee aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Flavor has hints of chocolate, and coffee with a fruity hoppy undertone. Overall, done up nice.

DarkElf (3066) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 1, 2004
(Draft: Sleeping Lady Brewing Company in Anchorage, AK) The flavor is full-on toasty maltiness, moderately bitter, especially in the finish, and moderately sweet; Exceptional nose is very toasty with some dark roasted aromas; The palate is full bodied, but not heavy; Dark, dark brown, opaque, except at the edges; Tan head settles to a thin layer but leaves dense, thick lacing; Having tasted 10 beers at Sleeping Lady, this is probably their best beer
