On tap in Laramie. Impressive place for the town. Not a great version of the style and rather bland. Color was black with a brown head. Aroma of roasted malt and oats. Flavor was ok, but just a bit mellow, with the above mentioned flavor components. Ok.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 1, 2008
I found this to be a very typical porter. Chocolately with a light bit of roastiness. Milky creaminess and smooth on the palate. Finishes with a milky maltball kind of artificial flavor.

I’ve had better. I detected a slight medicinal (band-aid) flavor . . . sanitation problem. . . ?

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2006
Not the greatest porter I have ever tried. Has a bit of a lactic sweetness, followed immediately by a sourness. Roasted and citric, with chocolate and overly roasted coffee flavors. Finishes thin and watery.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Clear and deep, dark brown. Very sweet-smelling nose. Thinnish body with a light carbonation. Rather sweet, with big flavors of toffee and some chocolate. A little sourness as well. Overall, it had some nice flavors, but it was missing some elements I look for in a porter.

Dark and clear brown. Light and sweet chocolate malts and coffee flavor, very bright. Somewhat sour aroma of old milk and malts, but a pleasant flavor.
