Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Ordered at James E. McNellie's Public House in downtown Tulsa, OK, 01/25/14.

Deep dark brown/black topped by two fingers worth of very creamy light brown head. Monumental lacing on the glass. Looks great.

Smells great too - notes of milk chocolate, toffee, and darkly toasted bread.

Gran Sport may be the best tasting porter I've had to date! It's richly layered in milky chocolate, vanilla, sweet English toffee, dark roasted malts, and freshly-ground coffee beans. Amazing flavors.

Super smooth full body. Thick, creamy, sticky, and all that is good. This is perfection in feel. Easy 5.

Would take this over many of the highest ranked beers on BA. Must have more.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Taken in at room temperature at TapWorks in Bricktown.
A- Deep brown, not quite black with a thick, mocha colored head of about 1 finger. Average retention with some really sticky lacing.

S- Big coffee and chocolate notes here. Lots of roasted aroma as well.

T- Good job of following the nose. Lots of coco again. Some coffee. Sweet with some unexpected bitterness in the finish. I'm not agraid of a hop presesnce in my porters. Delicious flavor and terrific balance!

M- A very solid feel to this porter based on the abv. Mid to full body. Creamy...almost beefy. Just the way I like my porters. Dry finish is also nice. A true highlight of this beer is the mouthfeel.

O- This beer was magnificent. Chocolate carries the flavor torch, but not to be totally outdone by other intense characteristics. Would certainly have again and hope to see it on tap each time I visit OKC.

3.58/5  rDev -13.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce pour into a pint glass.
Appearance: As black as my soul. There was a nice, tan head, but it went away as soon as I started drinking it. All that remains is a thin ring around the border.
Smell: Faint chocolate and coffee aromas. A bit of roasted malt to back it up. Sweet and charcoal-y.
Taste: Very clean and smooth porter. There’s a deep roasted character, but it’s not overwhelming. It’s dry and fades slowly. A bittersweet chocolate flavor emerges as it warms.
Mouthfeel: Silky smooth.
Overall: I like it. Modest at 6% ABV, and drinkable all day. Perfect for the cold weather that seems to be blowing in.
