Bottle. Pours brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is caramel and roasted malts, nutty grains and bread. Flavor is sweet and similar to the aroma but with a touch of chocolate. Finish is slightly dry and nicely bitter.

355mL bottle poured dark brown with red highlights in the light and a creamy thick beige head with nice retention and lacing. Aromas of roasted malt and chocolate and a hint of coffee. Taste is roasted malty sweetness and chocolate balanced with some coffee and hop bitterness in the finish. This is an enjoyable tasting experience.

On tap at Anderson Valley in August 2009. Reviewed from notes. Pours near black with a light mocha head. Some lacing. Nose brings forward faint hints of chocolate and coffee along with a bit of a buttery toffee. Taste brings a bit more butter, which is quite unpleasant. Coffee and roasted malt cover up a bit, but not enough. Feel is of a moderate body and somewhat dry. Not one of their better offerings. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-07-2010

That’s a damn nice porter. Pours deep brown with a thin cappuccino head and some clings. Lovely mocha aroma with some vanilla. Nutty, chocolate, caramel in the taste with a lingering coffee finish.

A reddish brown porter with a thin light moka head. A sweet funky chocolate malt aroma, nuttella notes, a bit of mashed peas. In mouth, a caramelly chocolate with very nutty notes, oily mouthfeel, medium bodied. On tap at J. Ryans, August 29, 2010.

A good porter, not as rich as I was expecting, but good none the less. Enjoyed this one with GMK and Brenton at the Wheaty for the SABSOSA presentation.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Bomber. Pours super dark, garnet red along the edges but otherwise brown and opaque, with a large foamy brown head. Aromas of milk and dark chocolates, coffee, molasses, toffee, a little alcohol, and oak and vanilla. Flavor is roasty cocoa and espresso, cane sugar, a touch of vanilla, and bitter coffee in the finish. Pretty high carbonation, with a dry finish. Good beer with a nice roasted quality; this could be better, but it’s too carbonated for the style, for me.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - SEP 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a tall creamy attractive and lacing khaki head. Deliciously inviting aroma thats very solid and on style. Notes of vanilla, licorice, chocolate, roasted malt, and coffee. The flavor is very nice as well. It is similar to the aroma with a bit of a dark fruit quality to it. Medium dry roasty finish. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Overall: this beer is just spot on. So balanced, so perfectly to style. Its simple and yet still complex. Just an outstanding example of a porter. This will be joining SN Porter as my go to, simple perfect porter.
