Terminal Gravity’s Breakfast Porter is a dark plum colored beer. It begins with coffee and chocolate flavors, then quickly moves on to hints of berries, and finishes with continental hop notes. The broad array of malts includes Belgian caramel and English Brown. The hops include Northwest Crystal and Styrian Goldings.
It’s not just for breakfast anymore.

A very light porter, a muddy brown. Tinny wheat aroma with some deeper roast and a tingle of dusty hop. Good body, slick mouthfeel. Robust and creamy with hints of chocolate and vanilla mixed with a robust malt and bitterness.

Pours really light for a porter, finger of off white head. Smell gushing with coffee, roast, caramel. Taste is sweet, tea? Interesting. More of a brown or amber ale though.

Fuck Slayer "Antichrist" is a fucking god damn amazing song. Show No Mercy is such a fucking great fucking album. Great riffs, awesome solos. Best Slayer album? Shit it might be my favorite. Anyways, back to the beer. Nose of coffee, brown bread, a little roast, a little chocolate, and a dose of earthy hops. Pours murky brown with a nice bubbly creamy off white tan head. The flavor is nice and roasty, surprisingly hoppy with a good amount of coffee. Lightly acidic from the coffe. Nice dry drinker. A hint of brown bread in there as well as very light sweetness. Almost like a hoppy brown ale/black ipa hybrid with coffee. Interesting. I like it.

Comes out of the tap a barely translucent reddish chocolate brown with a nice yellow-beige head that leaves some good lacing. Aroma is smoky and chocolaty and has an undertone of coffee as well as a nutty hint. Smoky flavor has firm chocolate and coffee tones with nutty and toffee hints. Smooth, pleasing texture is fairly fizzy. Look for this one!

Dark brown beer with ruddy highlights. Dark roast coffee and pure chocolate, lingering toffee, toasted walnuts. Moderate bitterness and some leafy hop flavor. Tasty.

Draught at Horse Brass. Chocolate. Creamy. Roast. Good to style and mostly what I expect. Tasty.

Brown,small lasting beige head.Earthy carmel malt nose.Sweet and toasty, somewhat thin. Decent but this is NOT a porter, more of a brown ale

On tap at Collins last night. Coffee and chocolate. I thought it was dry. I didn’t start drinking water until I ordered this one. Finished thin. I liked it enough but didn’t immediately think to get another.

On tap at Collins Pub. Pours a reddish color with no head and some lace. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and coffee. Tastes of toasted malt, bread, red fruits and bitter coffee.
