Notes/Commercial Description:
Formerly Strong Porter

Dark, malty, chocolaty, great hop aroma; all can be said of Six Row's Strong Porter. Strong because of the increased alcohol content, hop bitterness and aroma. The Strong Porter was brewed with authentic English malt alongside Black and Chocolate malt to add complexity. The deepness of the malt is complimented by East Kent Goldings and Fuggle hops to balance the slight sweetness typical of traditional English Porters.

36.7 IBU

4.03/5  rDev +7.8%

Appearance: Arrives pitch black, with a foamy tan head capping the liquid and leaving plenty of lacing action behind

Smell: Chocalately and roasty, with a hint of earthy hop

Taste: Chocolate and black bread, up front, with a bit of earthy hop character arriving in the middle; the finish contains plenty of roast to offset the hop bill

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very nice robust porter that is a bit of a cross between the American and English styles

Also, on tap at 44 Stone, Columbia.

A - Poured an opaque, jet black color with a small, light brown head. It had okay retention but left very little lacing.

S - It smelled roasty with a touch of coffee and chocolate.

T - Nice roasted malt flavor with chocolate and toffee flavors. There is a nice bitter bite from the hops.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a pretty tasty porter. Nice to get to try more Six Row beers.

A: pours a deep brown color with a decent tan head and nice lacing.

S: Rich aroma of roasted malt, chocolate with some coffee and bit of dark fruit.

T: Taste is a nice mixture of roasted malt and chocolate. There is some traces of coffee with a mild bitterness and a dry finish.

F: Medium body, smooth with a nice creamy texture. Flavor seems enhanced as it warms.

O: Quite enjoyable, Nice Porter from a local brewer.

Pours out really dark with two fingers of tan suds. No lacing to speak of.
Aroma is light but there is a raisiney smell with slight chocolate/coffee hints. NO alcohol detected here.
Taste is mild but everything is here. You have the coffee bitterness with the chocolate/charred malts and the raisin finish.
Mouthfeel is very clean for a porter but this is a 4.9%er so that probably explains that.
Overall I would give this a 3.75 but my choice is the 4.
Looking forward to more from this brewery.

This local brewery just began releasing bottles. Picked this one up in a local STL bottle shop and it is labeled "Porter" as opposed to Strong Porter, but according to their website, it is the same beer.

Bomber poured into a Duvel tulip. Deep brown colored body with a small amount of light getting through. A little over a one-finger tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. A light amount of sticky lacing on the glass.

Rich and complex aroma that features nice roasted malt and chocolate notes. Some licorice and light hop notes in the background.

The roasted malt and chocolate shine in the flavor. Just enough light hop notes to balance the malt and a bit of sweetness (not too much) that pulls it all together.

Light to medium mouthfeel that is very drinkable. A very solid porter overall. Very glad to see this brewery bottling now.
