Donner Party Porter
is a ‘Colonial America’ Porter. This robust brew has a moderate to heavy mouth
feel, very deep brown in color, and imminently drinkable. Featured in the brew
are hand toasted oat flakes and molasses. Made to be a formidable beer to ward
off winter’s chill. The flavor is a complex array of dark chocolate, espresso,
and dark dried fruit. Your friends never tasted so good!

Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Pours a dark blacked out color with a thick froth of softly tanned head resting
on top. Evens out, leaving some patchy lacing and a collar of film on the brew.
Pleasant mix of roasted coffee beans, semi-sweet chocolate and dark malts in the
nose. Each sniff becomes more intoxicating, as the layers of malts start to
Full and robust right up front with nice roasted malt flavors. Layers of caramel
and bread crust are coupled with a dark roasted coffee flavor which is right on
point for coffee drinkers like myself. A touch of sweetness from chocolate and
malts, finished off with some dry oats and coffee on the back end.
Fuller medium body, nice carbonation, creamy and slick on the tongue. I don't
often find myself raving about porters, but this one stood out amongst an
already impressive lineup of 5050 beers.
