chinchill (1380) - South Carolina, USA - APR 16, 2014
12 oz can. Aroma: Exceptionally rich and strong dark roasted malts; lightly spicy. Flavor: l;ess intense than the aroma. Leaves a mild, lingering, dark roast aftertaste. Feel: near creamy smooth; medium body.and carbonation that may be a touch too high. Flavor: touch of coffee after some dark chocolate. Negligible burnt toast.

Deep dark, but a bit translucent with a thin tan head that faded quickly. Smooth, roasty malt with coffee, cocoa, and toast. Crisp through the finish with a bit of nuts and a light tartness.

Dark draft pour at the lodge. Delicious porter with coffee and.chocolate, but not overwhelming. Loved it.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Can:   A bit of a smokey porter, a bit thin, not all too malty, nor hoppy.   Clean, but a lighter example.   A bit of a roasty malt finish, some dark chocolate bits on the nose.   Falls off real quickly, leaving only a small roasted malt presence with a touch of smokiness.   Meh... pretty pedestrian.

Rrauth (1091) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2014
can. way to coffee like for me. I think the body and the smoothness but its too much roast and toast and makes it coffee like based.

From 12oz can. Pours dark brown with tan head. Strong coffee component in the aroma. Tastes like a decent coffee stout, maybe a big thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours dark brown with a beige creamy to frothy head that diminishes fast and leaves a small ring around the glass and good lacing. Aroma is strong coffee and burnt malts. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Watery texture, average to soft carbonation, medium body leading to a lightly bitter and thin finish.

Draft at Uber Tavern in Seattle. Black with tall foam. Good sweet-sour, slightly smoky porter. Rich tootsie and chocolate.

nearbeer (3432) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2014
12 oz. can. Pours nearly black with a lasting disc of cream. Aroma of espresso, with touches of cocoa and graham cracker. Flavor is espresso with touches of mocha, tart blackberry and vanilla. Medium body is well balanced by the acidic roast. Velvety smooth, almost slick mouthfeel has medium, but mostly smooth carbonation. Pretty tasty session porter.
