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.

Had this at mcNellies, Tulsa

Poured ebony/black with a pinky of tan head, dropped away quickly. Some lacing & head retention

S: Charred grain & cocoa, faded a bit as it warmed

T: Chocolate with hints of chicory up front, plus some herbal hops. A nice mixture of baker's choclate, roasted malt & dryness as this warmed. Finished dry & semi-sweet

MF: Very smooth with medium body

Drank very easy indeed, will happily drink this again, given the chance

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.

On tap at Republic okc. Pours a deep brown with thick head into nonic pint glass. It leaves lots of sticky lacing. Smells like malty chocolate. Taste is very similar; roasted malts, chocolate and some bitter hops. Its surprisingly hoppy for a porter but very good and full of flavor. Overall, a really good porter. Very drinkable and enjoyable. OKC is really surprising me with their brews...

I'm a very poor reviewer of beers... I get a kick out of reading these reviews though sometimes and trying to see if I can catch any of what others are tasting.

All I can say is that basically, this is an incredibly solid porter. Maybe one of the best that I've had from a local brewery anywhere I've been.

Sorry, that's about as much as I can say. LOL It's defiantly full flavored and not to be missed.

A really fantastic Oklahoma beer, without a doubt this is my favorite year round porter available in the state. Poured with a fantastic looking two finger mocha colored head, the beer is a deep brown, almost black in color.

Roasted malt aroma, mild coffee, cocoa, all of the usual suspects. The flavors all work together perfectly, coffee in the beginning, touch of sweetness, and then bitter chocolate finish.

The mouth feel is medium, smooth and creamy, with just a light-medium amount of carbonation.

Overall, a really fantastic beer! Doesn't get enough recognition in this state, it's overlooked by some of the other heavy hitters in COOP's lineup. But drink this beer one time and you will see that is has the goods to stand on it's own.

Great dark color with good head and slight lacing. Good sweet toasty smell and taste with slight coffee accent. Smooth full body beer with light carbonation that works for this beer. Pretty good porter.

Mighty fine. Excellent porter, maybe leaning into Stout territory.

Inky black with a generous tan head. Toasty malt aroma.

Flavor is rich and earthy. Dry. Definitely some coffee and cocoa. Toasted bread. A tinge of mollases maybe (reminds me of Bridgeport's Stout) Lingering aftertaste.

Nice mouthfeel, medium bodied. Very drinkable.

A great porter. With just a little more something (not sure what) it could be extraordinary.

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.
