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.

Decent porter. BJ is about food n pizookie. Beer is extra AND the addition of craft taps says it all. Wish they were in North Jersey.

HIGHB4LL (431) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2014
On tap at BJís Fort Collins. Appearance: cascading finger of chocolate head, cloudy brown color. Aroma: chocolate, light roast, nutty. Palate: full body, smooth and velvety texture, soft carbonation, light alcohol warming. Taste: sweet throughout with lightest bitter on finish; sweetness is not overpowering. Overall, little under complex on the nose for me, but still very nice and great palate and appearance.

Draft. Very average porter, body is a little thin as are flavors. Served too cold, but I allowed to sit and warm a bit, but it didnít improve too much. Better choices available.

MadRobin (1830) - Silver Spring, USA - MAR 5, 2014
On tap 5 oz. sample at BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse in Vienna (Tyson's Corner), VA. Clear, but very dense, black-mahogany with a nice creamy khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma of molasses, citrus, mango and chocolate. Taste of chocolate, nuts, roasted malt and tangerine. Medium/light body and low/medium carbonization. Leaner and fruitier than a typical porter, but interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bierkrug (2131) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2014
On Tap at the Brew pub. Pours a dark opaque brown with a nice lasting tan head and abundant lacing. The nose is not very strong - malty. The taste is roasted malt and a bit of vanilla. The palate is medium-full and watery with a balance of carbonation. Not too bad.
