Gachupines (1205) - USA - SEP 23, 2010
Black appearance with a thin off white head. Aroma is roasted malt with some cocoa hints. Flavor is strong roasted flavor with some slight astringent bitterness in the finish. Slightly sour flavor lingers on the tongue. Pretty solid porter if a bit thin, still quite good.

daleharshman (1024) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 27, 2016
"Packaged April 3, 2014"...two years old now. 12 ounce bottle purchased at Bine & Vine ($2.19). POURS a very dark brown (basically black) with a good finger and a half of tan foam. AROMA of quality roasted malts, mild coffee, leather, with a bit of nutty vanilla. FLAVOR of earthy dark malts, some dark chocolate, light black coffee, and dark caramel. A bit of lingering roastiness into the finish. Somehow this is overly light in body. Not bad but was hoping for more heft and character. (1493, 1021)

zubblwump (9) - Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2016 does not count
Nice and dark, without much head. Lacing was minimal. Aroma was good, but very subtle. Smoky and sweet taste, with just a little bitter aftertaste. Overall, a decent beer, but kind of forgettable.
