Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is a heavily hopped high gravity porter featuring the hopping levels of an India Pale Ale with the rich and roasty malt profile of a robust porter. Heavy hop rates, while uncommon in today's porters were not unknown historically and recipes from the British porter producers of the 1800's evidence hopping rates far in excess of what is common for the style today.

Pours Virtually black. Pretty thick head. A nice looking porter. Very stout like in appearance.

Roasty smelling with a healthy dose of earthy, bitter hops.

A very distinct hop bitterness is the most noticeable followed by powdery coco, roasted malt and a little coffee.

Moderate on the carbonation.

Nice porter overall.

Jose Marti American Porter pours a dark brown with a thick tan head from a brown twelve ounce bottle. The aroma has some dark malt, but citrus like hops also come into the mix. The flavor is quite nice, notes of cocoa up front then a wallop of citrus hop flavor. Nice mouthfeel, definitely a little on the thicker side. Stronger than a typical porter. Excellent beer!

Purchased a four pack of this and am excited to try it. Pours from the 12oz bottle into an imperial pint glass. Emerges opaque and is topped with a frothy, thick, mocha colored head.

Aroma is really nice. Mostly, the aroma is filled with coffee and chocolate. There is also a clear hop presence in the nose. Kind of a piney, resiny hop note.

This one is nice. Almost like a blend of an american porter and a black IPA. super smooth and creamy on the tongue. The hops are present in flavor, but add a little bit of bitterness as well, not overpowering. Bitter bite way in the back in the finish. Coffee and dark chocolate flavors.

The mouthfeel on this is outstanding. Creamy, smooth, slight bit of bitterness, slightly oily, a little bit of everything.

I had this last week as a night cap and didn't enjoy it nearly as much as having this one alone. Really a great beer. Complex, different, delicious.
