Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 05-05-2002

A dark chocolate colored ale with a blend of toasty malt flavors and a dark caramel, this is a malt lovers paradise. Portage Porter's rich flavor can allow you a glimpse into the history of how beer used to taste back in the 1800s.

Recipe reformulated in 2007 by their new head brewer.

served on tap at McGinley's Irish Pub in downtown Anchorage.

appears very dark brown, almost black, with a thin off-white colored head. Aroma and taste are fairly typical for the style - toasted malt, with some hints of chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Flavors are mild though, easy to drink. Carbonation is at a fine medium level, but the body could be thicker.

Overall, a decent porter that I would recommend.

A super dark brown in color with a very thin tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate and hazelnuts. Taste begins with some oats, then brown sugar, then coffee, finishing with a tart, slight earthy bitterness. The aftertaste is a bit smokey. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Overall a decent porter.

Lighter brown color and medium body, this ale didn't leave much of an impression. Could have used a more bold malt profile and a littel more body.
