Gran Sport is a robust porter marked by its finesse and distinct malt backbone. Aromatic notes of chocolate and roasted coffee compliment the full-bodied mouthfeel derived from a healthy addition of oat flakes. Dark. Roasty. Malty. Splendid.

Poured into a pint glass. Dark as can be brown with reddish head that dissolves slowy and leaves lacing. Smells of roasted malt and bitter cocoa. The roasted malt hits immediately with a balanced amount of chocolate on the finish. No bitter after taste or noticeable alcohol taste. Medium body with light carbonation. Good porter that is great in coldish weather and still good even when it isn't cold.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: The darkest brown without being black. Cream colored head. Really nice lacing.

Aroma: Roasted malts, charred grains, faint chocolate.

Taste: An immediate chalky cocoa note, but otherwise good roasted malt character. There's definitely a flaked oats component that probably adds to that chalky cocoa note.

Mouthfeel: Slightly thin.

Overall: This is pretty spot-on for the style. Very easy to drink.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours to a generous tawny head and nearly opaque black color. Moderate lacing. Aroma is nondescript dark specialty malts and roasted coffee beans. Flavor is an assertive but enjoyable blend of black malt, espresso and chocolate with a significant backdrop of domestic hops. Mouthfeel is medium but a tad bit prickly. Overall, this is a very good American Porter that could arguably pass for a stout.

Look - Great dark color with good head and great lacing.
Smell and taste - Good sweet toasty smell and taste with slight coffee accent and a good sweetness too.
Feel - Smooth creamy full body beer with light carbonation that works for this beer.
Overall - Pretty good porter. If I lived in OK I'd get this beer often.

Pours a deep brown with a thin cream colored head. Small sticky lacing. The little aroma is pleasant with hints of coffee. The taste is predominately roasted malt with a little earthy hops to balance. The body is a nice weight for the style with a little carbonation on he finish.
