Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: mcallister on 08-11-2010

This is a heavily hopped high gravity porter featuring the hopping levels of an India Pale Ale with the rich and roasty malt profile of a robust porter. Heavy hop rates, while uncommon in today's porters were not unknown historically and recipes from the British porter producers of the 1800's evidence hopping rates far in excess of what is common for the style today.

A: Pours a nice deep mahogany, a bit of reddish at the lit edge; rich tan head leaves moderate lace.
S: Coffee and rich roasted malt with slight leather and tobacco.
T: Dark bread well toasted with smooth medium roast coffee, like a coarse breakfast. Hops punch through the middle and finish with a noticeable yet subtle hint of tobacco. The finish leads into an aftertaste return of the coffee and hop bitterness.
M: Mouth feel is right on for the style and matches the other attributes at medium to medium full with fine carbonation.
O: This beer was a real treat for me, being a gift from my TB area sis whiIe on vacation at the beach. In my estimation it's a fairly special beer that demands some quiet contemplation, for when you want something better than good. Jose Marti American Porter gets high marks for depth, subtlety, complexity and balance.

Dark brown with a reddish surface hue. Minimal carbonation.

Dark roast coffee, chocolate, and piney and earth hop aromas.

True to word, it's a hoppy porter. The chocolate and roast are the dominating flavors with a hefty dose of pine. The finish is a brown leafy taste.

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium with good carbonation. It's just a little chalky.

It's a very nice hoppy porter. The hops didn't overtake the roast characteristics and it is still recognizable as a porter.
