Anyone heard of Herman Joseph's? It was Coor's porter style and some of the best tasting around. They stopped brewing it but rumor has it they are going to start it up again. My question is does anyone know the recipe for this beer or a close clone? I found the Bud clone on this site and thought this would be the place to ask.

Hmmm Coors and good beer in the same sentence?

I remember Herman Joseph, it was released by Coors about the same time they originally released their version of Killians (early to mid '80's?). I don't think it was a porter, but it's been a really long time. Don't know about any recipes.

I remember Herman Josephs. It was definitely not a porter. Maybe a dark lager.

I never liked Killians and not sure why it stuck around and Herman Joseph didn't. It was named after the founder, Adolph Herman Joseph Coors and was THE absolute best beer Coors ever brewed. It was a porter, and had a taste of chocolate. That beer is unsurpassed, no unapproachable by any commercial beer under todays standards. Searching for the recipe I've come across some news that they are bringing it back. We shall see. But unless you've had Coors and Herman Joseph in the state of Colorado then you've missed out on the essence of a truly GREAT brewer. Oh ... I still want the recipe.

Ok, it was DARK. So what makes a beer a porter if it isn't dark? I've never had a golden porter. HJ is as dark and rich as any porter I've ever had. Granted I do not know the scientific side of beer but what I call porter is the DARK beer. I basically catagorize (perhaps incorrectly) into three groups (ales, lagers, porters). So by that grouping HJ has no choice but the fall into the porter catagory. In my mind it will always be Coors Brewing Co.'s porter. Killians was their ale. ... Say what you want but I would still love to get my hands on a clone recipe.

You can call it what you want but people will not know what you are talking about. The point of categorizing beers into styles is to give people basis for what others are talking about with any given beer. So if you want to just categorize beers into three styles you might want to use names that aren't already taken by other recognized styles. Maybe light, dark and darker.
