The only thing that I dislike about Sam Adams Porter is that it is only offered once a year, and in a variety pack. This product is so outstanding that I think it should be offered all year around by itself!

A: Execllent dark appearance, no flaws.

S: Multi layered smells include Mild chocolate, coffee, mocha, regular chocolate, and spices (from the hops).

T: Serious flavors, and multi-layered. Chocolates, coffee, cream, mocha, spices, etc.

M: Heavy to full body, and layers of cream.

D: Best porter I have ever tried. Has the perfect balance of sweet, tart, and bitter.

Overall, it is a shame this porter is not available all-year around as a stand-alone product. Sam Adams hit a grand slam on this one, and yet only sells it in limited ways.

Picked this one up in a Sam Adams Holiday 12 pack.

Pours a chocolate brown with a tint of red showing through, with a tan foamy, creamy head.

Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, and caramel.

Taste of roasted matls and chocolate and a very surprising hop flavor, not usually as powerfull on most porter brews.

I must say this truly a delicious porter. When you get this hop flavor mixed with the porter malt flavor, this becomes an excellant combo.
