Indy location; draft, no head, only slight aroma of possilbly burnt coffee, flat, watery, couldnít even finish this one. On a positive note, the service was great; shame the porter was a disappointment.

Had this at the brewpub in Littleton CO on 06-May-2008. Nice dark color, bit of tan head. No discernable odor whatsoever. Taste was very sour and acerbic. Nasty stuff. Could be a bad batch or some that was way past its sell-by date, but if this is how it always tastes, I would NOT recommend this beer to anyone.

Tap at the Ram in Seattle.
I really donít understand the passable ratings that this one is getting. It does have a pleasant roasted-grain aroma, gently chocolaty -- but wow this thing is thin on the mouthfeel, to the point that itís outright painful. The flavor is limited as well, this is watery and insipid and scarcely a porter as we know it.

Pours dark brown with small white head. Aroma is caramel, coffee, and dark malts. Taste is dark caramel malts, chocolate, and coffee. The body is way too light for the style. Iíd pass on this one.

Draft in Arlington, TX....
I thought they poured me a stout. Nice thick dark color and decent foamy head. Lil too much coffe and chocolate after taste for me.
