COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Built with lots of chocolate malt and black strap molasses to give this beer backbone. A hint of juniper blends nicely with the chocolate to become a new and unique flavor you can only find at the Alameda Brewhouse. The Porter stands up to the Artichoke, Spinach and Herb Dip as well as the Brewhouse Nachos.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours dark brown with an off-white head. The aroma has porter roast/toast with some light chocolate. It has a medium / light body with semi-soft carbonation. The taste has semi-dry roast and some berry aspect. The finish gets drier and is cocoa heavy. Decent porter.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Slight smokiness with roasted malt. Black and opaque appearance with a taupe foam. Smoke and roased woodiness quickly give way to an acidic finish. Oily and slick body. A decent porter if you are a fan of the style.

Tap @ their brewhouse... Poured black with a thin, light brown head. Toasted, cocoa cereal grains on the nose. Thick, foamy, well carbonated palate. Smoked malts, creamy caramel sweetness, and a earthy, soy quality -- maybe somehow from the juniper. A dark coffee and hop bitterness in the finish.
