Third Orbit Imperial Porter with Cherries
A Note on This Beer
Blissfully roasty with notes of cocoa-dusted espresso and dark fruit in a 9% ABV body, Ecliptic Brewing’s Third Orbit Anniversary Imperial Porter takes you on an intergalactic journey right into the center of the dark beer universe.
Flaunting big flavors like a Russian Imperial Stout elevated with the Porter’s silky smoothness, Third Orbit is the brainchild of John Harris, revered creator of arguably one of the best beers in the world: Deschutes Black Butte.
Infusing this award-winning knowledge into Third Orbit, Harris layers 7 different malts to create a greatest hits list of dark beer cravings. Blackened depths of French roast coffee, toasted marshmallows, burnt sugar, carob, even notes of chicory flow out of the glass. Brewed with real cherries, subtle tones of ripe fruit accentuate the roasts like a black chocolate cordial.
For us, every new beer from Ecliptic Brewing is cause for celebration - especially when it comes straight from the mind of a dark beer genius. Here’s to you, John Harris!

Good but light on cherries. Not my favorite.
