Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

From 03/23/13 notes. Had this on tap at Proletariat on St. Mark's Place in NYC. Served in an oversized wine glass.

a - Pours a dark mahogany brown color with one inch of light tan head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of raisins, peanuts, roasted malts, plums, dark fruits, chocolate, toasted malts, and burnt malts. Lots of raisins and peanuts; interesting but I like it quite a bit.

t - Tastes of peanuts, bitter chocolate, roasted malts, raisins, figs, plums, dark fruits, toasted malts, coffee. More peanuts and normal porter characteristics than the nose and less raisin, but quite good.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. No alcohol presence, pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall an interesting, and good, porter. Lots of raisins and peanuts to it as promised, and alot of roasted malts and chocolate in the taste. Would like to have it again.

The beer has an aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, lots of nuttiness, maybe some prune or grape.

The flavor follows of porter like roasted malt, sweet cocoa, chocolate, a hint of vanilla, and lots of nutty lots.

A good porter with maybe hints of raisin, but definitely not peanut flavors.
