Fairly dark pour. Malty roasted aroma. Delicious porter, with milky/ roasted charry oats, hints of cocoa. Feels medium- thin, nice and slick with a pleasant aftertaste. Such a robust beer. Of the few porters I've tried, none were memorable, except for this one.

Dark chocolate brown with no head or retention, but leaves lace as it's consumed; 100% opaque.

Smells of cocoa, milk, lactose, some blanched nuts, roast malt, a faint bit of coffee in there too.

It's got this nutty chocolate roastiness to it that's undeniably delectable. A surprising pacific style hop punch with orangey citrus surfaces to dirty things up, but it's not overwhelming. A carbonated buzz and semi dry parch wrap up this profile nicely.

Overall Gran Sport is a fine porter that I'd have again. Generally most places sell a four pack for around $9 and that's par for this beer. I'd love to try a nitro version if they ever get around to it.

An incredibly good porter, while not overly complex on the palate, it is smooth, tasty, and easy to drink. Personally, this was my favorite of the Coop Ale Works' lineup that I tried during my time in Oklahoma.

Pours a deep ebony color with a tight, off-white head that leaves bits of lacing.

Smells of coffee and cocoa along with some char.

Tastes of deep roasted notes. Notes of cocoa and coffee lead off along with a bit of brown sugar sweetness. Some nuttiness and dark fruits come through in the middle. Some roasted bitterness comes next along with some herbal notes. Finishes fairly dry with a slight lingering sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a good, smooth porter.

Poured into a pint glass. Dark as can be brown with reddish head that dissolves slowy and leaves lacing. Smells of roasted malt and bitter cocoa. The roasted malt hits immediately with a balanced amount of chocolate on the finish. No bitter after taste or noticeable alcohol taste. Medium body with light carbonation. Good porter that is great in coldish weather and still good even when it isn't cold.
