Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Chris and Augie grew up as neighbors next to the hiking trails of Hartshorne Woods Park. Back then, trail mix was called GORP, standing for Good Old Raisins and Peanuts, which described it perfectly. Familiar and dependable, GORP trail mix was a combination of clean and complimentary flavors appropriate for being out on the trails. With GORP beer, we evoke recollections of fun and flavors of the trails by adding peanuts and chocolate to a robust porter base.

Gotta rate this one highly for originality and execution. This is the direction Carton goes where no one else is going. In this case it really works.

A: Nearly perfect porter look, with rings of lace, body, and staying power.
S: The chocolate, raisins, and peanuts rise off the beer in subtle charred format.
T: The taste astounds for being completely original, true to trail mix, and yet a real solid charred, roasty porter without being cloying... finishes dry and long. A great flavor ride.
MF: Excels in body, tingle, finish.

You must try this beer, it's now my favorite porter, which says alot. Compares well with Chocolate Stout and RIS.

Had this on draft at GORP Day at Carton Brewing.

Appearance was a dark brown color, with normal head. was quite murky.

Smell - smelled really nice, nutty, sweet.

Taste - delicious. Chocolate, Peanuts, Raisins. Certainly reminiscent of trail mix.

Mouthfeel - smooth, not too heavy considering the abv.

Overall, this was delicious. Glad i purchased some growlers!
