The Blacklist


  • Porter's Pub 1250 Bowes Creek Blvd Elgin, IL, 60124 United States (map)

During the month of February, take on The Blacklist at Porter's Pub at Bowes Creek. 8 Different dark beers to enjoy best when it's cold. Get reacquainted with some of the best dark beers available, especially for these colder months.

The Blacklist is as follows:
[No.1] 4 Hands Chocolate Milk Stout
Pours black with aromas of dark chocolate, chocolate malt, and more chocolate. With a firm tan head and rich velvety mouthfeel, it is a perfect complement to the change of seasons.
[No.2] Firestone Walker Wookey Jack
Offers up true hop aroma to rival most IPAs with pungent citrus and herbal hop nuances, a hint of peppery rye, and earthiness in the nose. Big roast malts and balanced hop bitterness offer a full and complex texture with a refined battered finish.
[No.3] Stone Sublimely Self Righteous
Smells and drinks like a double IPA, but has a chocolatey, roasty character that sneaks in at the back end. Tropical fruit and pine that is balanced by the roasted malt that sits in a tamed position in comparison to the hops.
[No.4] Boulder Shake Chocolate Porter 
Dark black in color with rich, sweet aromatics and flavors of dark chocolate, coffee and caramel.
[No.5] Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro
Dark and delicious. The aroma is of brown sugar and vanilla cream, with hints of roasted coffee. Hop and roast bitterness sit in the finish while the rest is filled with milk chocolate goodness. Actually bottled with nitrogen instead of CO2, this beer is super creamy.
[No.6] Revolution Brewing Eugene Porter
Robust porter full of warmth and chocolate malt. The specialty grains provide a complex structure of toasted grain and caramel flavors.
[No.7] Scorched Earth Rugged Coalminer
Rich, chocolatey, robust porter. The smooth caramel body softly balances the chocolate coffee.
[No.8] Founders Breakfast Stout
Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates, and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes on forever.

Ask the server or bartender for a punch card. Take down all 8 and redeem the finished card for a Free Dinner Entree.

Along with sipping on some delectable suds, you can check out some daily specials. Tuesday's are half priced beers, Wednesdays feature $5 burgers, and Thursdays are 25¢ wings, a personal favorite.

Promotion runs through February 28th.
