COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust dark ale is surprisingly smooth and drinkable. Caramel, molasses and chocolate flavors fill the palate. Its sweet start is perfectly balanced by a roasted dry finish.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

BucannonXC5 (933) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Actually had this at the BJís La Mesa. Poured from a draft into a pint glass at BJís Brewery in La Mesa, Calif. Color was very dark brown, just a tad bit lighter than the Tatonka Stout. About an inch of head. Tan lacing on the top. Smooth film on the sides. Smelled of sweet chocolate malts. A tad whiff of coffee and toffee on the other side. Taste was very similar to the nose. Tasted the chocolate malts up front, followed by caramel and toffee. Some coffee beans came in late. Full body. Smooth and creamy texture. Average carbonation. Smooth and long finish. Not a bad beer. I thought this was better than the Tatonka Stout. Iíd probably give it another try.

Dark brown pour with a small head. Aroma of chocolate and caramel. Thin bodied, with a butterscotch note that is off-putting. Not terrible, but wouldnít order again.

On tap at the Plano, Texas location. The beer pour a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma has some chocolate and roasted malt notes, as well as some light smoke. The smoke is more intense in the flavor, where there is also some chocolate and roasted malt notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

maley1 (807) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 16, 2011
Dark brown pour with small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts. Taste is slightly malty and roastiness is present. Beer is thin and all flavours are very faint, nice mouthfeel and carbonation. Not much hoppy biterness. Enjoyable light crisp porter.

One of the very best Porterís I have ever had. The more beers I tried at BJís, the darker they got, and the better they tasted. Excellent!
