Draft. A pitch black beer with a rim of brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt as well as lighter notes of sweet malt (pilsner or the like), leading to a bitter finish. The body is thin.

On tap at Bridgeport, Portland. Black with disappearing tan head. Sour dark malt aroma. Again, a bit carbonated which gave it a thin feel in mouth. Nice liquorish flavour, bit of smoke, choccy liquorice, still excellent despite the lack of fullness in mouth.

Earlier Rating: 7/9/2011 Total Score: 3.1
Not 100 % sure about the name, this is what I heard from the waitress and it was a new seasonal. Dark opaque brown color, small beige head. Caramelly, ashy, toasted candy aroma with hints of mint and coffee. Light to medium-bodied. Tobacco and cold coffee in the flavor. Dry coffeish-ashy finish and aftertaste.

Small tan head atop a clear chestnut body. Aroma is moderately sweet, dark chocolate, caramel, light orange and cherry. Taste is underwhelming, especially after the inviting aroma -- mildly sweet, watery roasty chocolate, finishing roasty with trace of cherry and earthy bitterness. Medium body.

Draft at the brewpub. Aroma of toasted malt and very light coffee. Medium body with pert carbonation. Black color with creamy tan head. Flavor is smooth toasted malt, transitioning to something like cola, followed by floral fruity notes. Finishes very smooth, definitely fruity, and extremely pleasant.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2009 [needs rerate] I’m not a big porter fan, but this one was suprisingly flavorful. Nice full body, slightly sweet flavor of cherries and wood.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours black with a medium light brown head that dissipates steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Roasted coffee aroma with touches of smoke and chocolate. Medium, dry body with flavors of toasted malt, coffee, hops and chocolate. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Decent overall.
