A delightfully deceiving signature brew! Moose Point Porter has a dark and heavy appearance with a surprisingly light and clean finish.

Pretty straight forward porter, nothing too special. There are hints of coffee and chocolate which become more pronounced as the beer warms up. Pours nearly black, somewhat smooth mouthfeel with slight acidity. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a relatively straight-shooting porter.

Wow this is a really dark porter! Very black with a hint of dark ruby red sneaking through in a bright enough light. I'm getting a lot of roasted smells with a hint of sweetness. Starts off with a coffee taste which leads to a slight chocolate bitterness then quickly moves on to a mapley sweet finish. I'd say medium body, nicely carbonated. Worth a try for porter fans.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing this interesting looking beer.

Big fluffy darker colored creamy 1 finger head, fades at a med pace with lots of lacing, pitch black color.

Nose is nice, lots of dark malts, some roast, hint of black patent I think, heavy crystal malt, light caramel and vanilla, light campfire smoke, dark chocolate, a light cereal grain malt gives it a cocoa crisp cereal like, slight hint of coffee, plenty of caramel.

Taste is very complex and fairly sweet. Light roast, cocoa, some creamy milk chocolate, light campfire smoke, oats, the big chocolate and dark malts tickles my gums a bit. Again light cereal malt, some caramel and chewy malt, again oatmeal but a little thinner. Plenty of dark roasty malts. Finish is still fairly sweet and a bit syrupy, not too dry, more roast, cocoa, caramel, light smoke and some bitterness from the malts lingering.

Mouth is med to fuller bodied, little creamy decent carb.

Overall ok. Started nice but got a little too sweet and syrupy. If it was attenuated a bit more it would be a lot better.

Received from lakersfan. Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a deep dark dark brown almost black pour with a two finger khaki head that fades to leave light side lacing and thin wisps.

S - Aromas are quite robust light smoke and subtle chocolate. Nice roasted malts.

T - Taste is alot sweeter than I thought it would be. No smoke, but nice roasted malts some light vanilla. Light caramel like flavours. Really sweet.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated to keep things crisp and light in the tongue. Drinkable albeit sweet.

O - Overall not a bad porter by any means just alot sweeter than I was accustomed and was hoping for.

S) Chocolate. Coffee. Roasted grains. Bready.
T) Coffee. Roasted malts. Chocolate. Nice hop bite in the finish.
M) Full body. Chalky. Gritty. Dry with some tannic notes in the finish.
O) A well crafted porter. I will definitely drink more of this!

22oz bomber into a pint glass. Bottle has a date of 05072011. Probably a bottled date. Pours a thick dark chocolate/cola brown with a voluminous off-white creamy head of about three fingers. Very nice head retention and glass stickage.

Aroma is dark chocolate, cocoa powder, roasted malts/grains. Fairly muted, however.

Taste is lots of roasted malts with some bitter chocolate notes. Toasted grains and a bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is full and substantial. Smooth and easy drinking, finishes clean.

Overall, this beer really seems to epitomize the porter style. Fresh, well-made and easy drinking dark brew. Recommended for Alaskan porter fans.

served on-tap at the Resurrection Road House in Seward, AK.

appears black with ruby highlights. nice thick khaki-colored head.

aroma is very roasty, a little cocoa. taste features your typical porter flavors of roasted coffee and chocolate. nice balance, not too sweet or dry either way. thicker body, smooth carbonation.

overall, the best porter I had while in Alaska.
