2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Taster at Escondido brewhouse. Looks very dark brown with a bit of ruby in the light. Poured with a mocha looking head that is retained. Smells of some coffee and not too much more. Tastes pretty thin. Not too strong of a porter at all but very smooth all the way down and mocha tasting the whole way as well. Pleasant but not a stand out porter in any way. Overall 5.5 of 10.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught in Greenwood. Coke-colored with a lacing tan head. Light chocolate nose, light and smooth/creamy body with soft chocolate tones and a very faint spike of noble hop. Thin body hurts this one but I do like the chocolate here, not very earthy but refined and milky.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
28 July 2011, tap. Brown w/ deep red hue. Not as dark or brown as I would expect a porter to be. Big roast coffee nose. Not much else. Med body, a little watery, and faintly fizzy. Taste is coffee and some dark chocolate. Either there are faint notes of vanilla or I just really think this could make a great vanilla ice cream float. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro-tap at the BJís in El Paso, TX. Served avertually black with a good two finger head that lasted quite a while and lots of lacing throughout. Has a mild roasted malt aroma with a good bit of sweetness mixed in.
Taste is a mixture of coffee, toffee and a hint of chocolate. Fairly clean finish. Full body, very cream and smooth. Very well balanced.Goes down very easy. Excellent porter. At first I thought they had served me the Stout by mistake. This is a lot more enjoyable than than most of the beers they serve. Well worth a try.

Not much different then any other porter you would find, it had a nice finish. might be a little lighter then your average porter but it had the dark roasty malts you would typically find

Weak roasted malt aroma with some coffee notes mixed in. Midnight black in color and a creamy head. Great roasted malt and bitter dark chocolate aftertaste. Creamy Guinness like mouthfeel. Overall, really good. Much better than Guinness.

BJís PM Porter. This is one of the beers from BJís and itís decent, but not really one of my top brews but a good beer nonetheless. It pours a deep brown color with a great head with great retention and lacing. This is an easy beer to drink cause it goes down so smooth. Iím not sure what its abv but I didnít taste the alcohol at all. The aroma was hard to smell because of the locale but I did smell a hint of coffee. It has a generally sweet flavor that finished slightly bitter but there isnít anything too spectacular about the flavor of the brew. Thereís not even a particular flavor that stands out, just a general sweetness and bitterness. Itís works though especially with the very very mild carbonation and smooth texture. Easy to drink but tougher to place.
