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.

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.

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.

On tap at Mcnellie's in T-town before the Sonic Youth show. From notes.

Pure black with a quickly fading pure black head that leaves some broken stripes behind. Smells of subtle roasted nuts and malts. Tastes sweet and malty with a nice hop hit in the end. Faint chocolates and notes of black licorice also exist. Medium bodied and well balanced brew from some local favorites.

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

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.
