This is one rich, smooth, hearty porter. Iíd say it stands up favorably beside any other beer Iíve had. There are tones of chocolate, coffee, lots of malt, and just a little hoppy kick at the end. I donít understand why this beer isnít highly rated, I think itís really very good. Have it with BJís Black and Bleu Burger for a damn fine meal.

On tap at the Huntington Beach location. It pours dark brown with a cream colored head. The aroma has light notes of coffee and cream with hints of cocoa. The flavor is noticeably buttery with toffee and hints of cocoa/coffee but really light on flavor. Not a great one.

Much lighter than a porter should be. Tastes and feels much more like a nut brown. Not what I was expecting.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Growler pour) Slightly sweet, roasted aroma. Pours a clear brown, with ruby highlights when held up to the light, and no head at all. This beer has no carbonation in it after the growler fill. It seems that they did a top fill, and allowed all of the carbonation to escape. Thin bodied, with a touch of roasted notes with minimal finish. This isnít bad on tap, just donít expect a growler fill of it to hold up for even 12 hours.

Another watery mess from Bjís. Decent appearance, really tight, fine head. I think it was nitro. Body was flat. Flavorless.

Very smooth and very drinkable, wish I had a BJs near me so I could enjoy this more often.

A great porter. Creamy, nutty smell. Pours a great black with red hints. Tastes creamy smooth with hints of vanilla. Had on tap.

Sampler at Arlington, TX location. Comes dark brown with small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is malt, chocolate, caramel, and a bit of smoke. Nice.

Had this at the BJs in El Paso. Porter starts sweet, but taste is then overwhelmed by smokiness. Decent, but certainly not the best porter out there.
