Found my tasting notes from our Sept. 2000 Rt. 66 trip, at the suburban location. This is before I discovered beer rating sites, but I still wanted to note some impressions. My little scribbled notes say its impression was "not chocolate, like they say (in the deScription), but a strong coffee finish." Not the more detailed stuff I wrote once I discovered RateBeer, but I wanted to give props for a place that I thought had good beer AND good food.
My rating will just be the 3.3 average score currently standing, and this is a placeholder for what I hope will be a return trip to the Land of Enchantment.

From notes after visiting the brewpub 12/2006. Pours an opaque black. Nose is slightly smoky with a roasted quality about it. Goes down smooth with subtle, but strong coffee and roasted qualities. Thick malt flavors. I also get what I think is a blue cheese flavor in a way. Odd, yeah? Feel is superb IMO. Excellent level of carbonation combined with the ingredients. I am hoping I didn’t just catch this on a good day and that it is like this all of the time. A great porter and one I would continually go back to if I were to frequent this spot

Rich roasty aroma with chocolate and cocoa notes. dark brown with a firm mocha tinted head. Thinnish chocolate fore. Feels creamy tastes a bit thin. finishes soft and quick with no real flavor range.

On tap at brewpub, notes taken on napkin during trip to NM. Dark black. Little beige head with some lace. Aroma is coffee. Creamy and thin. Flavor is coffee and dark chocolate. Slight bitter finish. Drinkable but a little thin.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2005
Attractive dark brown body with a bronze tone and a soft tan head. Pronounced aroma and flavor of coffee and dark chocolate. Nice balance between dark malt and roast. May be too roasty stylewise but that doesn’t concern me much. Also has some subtle fruity plum character. An enjoyable beer.

Pitch black with mere remnants of a tan head. Syrupy and bitter. Smoky. Ok.
