Share This Review

C Porter is an American Porter brewed by LauderAle, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a nonic pint glass from a can.

Appearance

The Porter pours a clear mahogany hue that shows ruby highlights at the edges. The ale is topped by a thick cap of dense tan-colored foam that shows excellent retention. A thin ring rounds the glass and a few droplets clutch its sides.

Aroma

The aroma strongly wafts a sweet scent of coconut and chocolate that’s backed by a hint of coffee.

Flavor

The tasting begins gently with a neutral blend of coffee flavor and bready malt. Mildly bitter coffee roast punches the top end and then the palate bottoms out with a sweet mix of coconut, vanilla, and chocolate.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is relatively smooth on the draw and picks up a light grain on the backend. It’s almost creamy through the middle with a body that’s a shade over medium and moderate carbonation.

Overall

Looks great in the glass. Its aroma is enticing and it feels luscious. And that palate is so flavorful and balances sweet and roast beautifully. High marks all around for the C Porter. Its Gold Medal win at the Great American Beer Festival is well deserved.

About the American Porter

The American Porter is a malty dark brew whose palate is complex and flavorful dark malts and varying hops. Historically, it’s an aggressive variant of the English Porter and Pre-Prohibition American Porters. It’s more assertive than an American Brown Ale but not as strong or bitter as the American Stout.
