Draught at the Caldera Taproom, Ashland, OR. Dark reddish brown colour with a small light tan head. Dry ash, roasted malt, mild liquorice and mild hoppy bitterness in the aroma. The flavour is dry roasted malt, hops, mild bitterness and dryness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

erickok (4135) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 1, 2015
Dry cacao, molasses, hint of smoke. Medium body, cleanly fermented and I find that the weakest aspect of this beer. It misses some character because of that. However I love the malts that are used. (33cl bottle from Beer City)

Das Bier hat eine sehr dunkelbraune Farbe und eine unstabile beige Schaumkrone. Geruch schokoladig, viel Kaffee, Vanille. Geschmack süß schokoladig, Vanille, süß, insgesamt könnte das etwas ausgewogener sein.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2865) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 26, 2015
Can from Taniguchi, served in snifter, black with a Thick beige head that vanished fast. The nose is mostly stone fruits, a bit roasty with some smokey chocolate. Medium bodied with a scratchy raspy mouthfeel. The taste is savoury chocolate, light fruit and sweet semi-bitter chocolate. A tasty brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

malrubius (2038) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 20, 2015
Can from some dump in Middlebury. Near black with lasting tan head and lace. Spicy hop aroma with chocolate and cola. Roasted chocolate, chocolate chip cookies, coffee, cola, pretty sweet, medium fruity with roasted woody hop finish. Fairly dry, creamy fine carbo. medium body. Probably could have done without the extra sweetness from the dextrine, but still very good and very complex for an everyday porter. .

mathieuc (1952) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2015
Black with red highlights and a medium offwhite head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of coffee, chocolate and chicoree. Taste is lightly sweet and loaded with roasted malt. Slightly ashy. More coffee and chocolate. Body is light to medium and carbonation moderate and mouthfeel a little creamy and smooth (oatmeal-like). A bif weak for a porter, still. Overall a fair porter but not something I would come back to.
