Very Good
Notes: Luscious and silky smooth with a body to match, OP Porter is uncompromisingly rich yet surprisingly drinkable. A complex blend of dark malts and real milk sugar creates the bold flavors of dark roast coffee mingling with farm fresh cream. For the stout and porter lover in each of us, OP is a knockout.

I tried this beer at the brewery with HomeBrew as part of a five sample flight. It poured an opaque dark with thin off white ring head that did not leave much lace. The scent was very subtle with hints of roast. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with sweet malt base with roast and nutmeg presence. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with subtle carbonation. Overall it is a decent beer.

Super dark brew; great head retention.

Nose is fairly subdued, but there's a lot of roast malt in there.

Robust and smooth on the palate; roasted malt and cream, with a touch of vanilla. Very easy to drink.

Really a fairly standard, but quite good, robust porter, with a touch of lactose giving it a fuller, creamier body.

Funky Buddha Brewery - OP Porter. 6.3% ABV. 16oz pint glass ordered at the brewery.

Look: Almost pitch black, with some ruby highlights. Arrived with a thin light tan head.

Smell: Toasty dark malts, loads of sweet vanilla, and caramel.

Feel: Full bodied, thick and velvety smooth with a little carbonation.

Taste: Sweet vanilla and caramel, surrounded by toasty dark malts and dark chocolate.

Overall: Unfortunately, the last beer I tried at the brewery before departing. Again, I was not disappointed at all. This is a good, solid toasty sweet porter. Good balance of toasty malt and sweet vanilla. I had hoped to try the Vanilla OP Porter, but it had run out. I can just imagine how it was, since this regular OP had a lot of vanilla in it.

On tap at the brewery. Complex layers of bitter chocolate, burnt barley, slight smokiness, earthy hops and a touch of coffee. Silky smooth and medium bodied goodness. This beer has a great balance and drinkability.

Had this on draft at the local Funky Buddha Brewery. Enjoyed with some tacos from Chacos a food truck parked out front. Went well with tacos. A classic porter with a great fresh taste
