Description 

The smooth notes of natural chocolate in King Porter Stomp are in perfect syncopation with the five different malts that provide the bass line of this robust beast. Medium-bodied with a chocolate aroma, King Porter Stomp is smooth jazz in a can.

King Porter Stomp was poured from a 12 ounce can into a pint glass and subsequently reviewed under the guidelines of the Beer Judge Certification Program as a 9C Baltic Porter.

A big tan head filled the glass and held even with a delicate pour. Mahogany in color and very clear when held up to light.

The aroma carried a deep chocolate malt bouquet with notes of dark fruit and a pleasant well defined vanilla bean character.

A flavor of rich chocolate malts accompanied by black current, molasses and vanilla created an enjoyable and complex taste profile which started sweet and then hurried to a dry finish. Roast was restrained and alcohol well-hidden which avoided harshness. Medium bodied and very smooth with proper conditioning.

A malty rich Baltic Porter without the sharpness from over roasted grains and higher levels of alcohol often found in other examples of this style.
