Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Morningside on 03-08-2013

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.

3.49/5  rDev -11%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: very dark brown, if not black. completely opaque. small tannish head that leaves a lacing along the sides.

Smell: definitely some peanuts, raisins and chocolate. strong peanut butter. mix of dark malts between chocolate, dark crystal and some roastiness.

Taste: opens up with huge bites of peanut. the middle is full of raisins and dark crystal malts. other small notes of roasted malts, some earthy and woody qualities to it.

Mouthfeel: fairly heavy and sticky. ends a little bitter.

Overall: a well executed beer, it certainly has the aspects of trail mix. that being said I think ill stick to the original form. also think it could be a little lighter, as the heaviness along with the unique flavor makes it tougher to drink. but overall a fairly tasty beer

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!
